Just what do we mean when we talk about Maine’s working waterfront? Is it just piers, docks, and moorings, or is there more that makes our coast "work"? Tom Groening, editor of the Island Institute’s The Working Waterfront newspaper, will speak about the battle to retain fishing access to the rapidly developing waterfront that began in the 1980s, as well as what assets remain and what challenges loom for the Maine coast, including quality of life, traffic, affordable housing, and an aging population.
