Bar Harbor residents approve purchase of ferry terminal to accommodate larger cruise ships

At Bar Harbor's annual town meeting on 12 June 2018 - with a voter turnout of only 38.5% - citizens approved by a vote of 1380 to 213 to buy for $3.5M the Maine DOT's vacant former ferry terminal.

Plan is to develop a pier able to handle larger cruise ships.

A group of citizens had proposed (unsuccessfully) an alternative, less ambitious plan intended to reduce downtown foot-traffic congestion.

Will more and bigger cruise ships be good for Bar Harbor? Probably good for T-shirt shops and tax revenues, but what will it do to the livability and character of the town?

Stay tuned.
