Waterfront Protection Ordinance Information  (aka the destruction of the working waterfront)  Vote NO on the WPO in November!!!! We as a club strongly suggest you to reach out to your fellow South Portland Residents and help educate them on the negative impact this ordinance has on the entire state of Maine and not just South Portland.  If this passes as written hundreds will be without jobs and thousands will end up paying the price for the shutdown of the waterfront as we know it today.  Not to mention the tax increase on each and everyone of the South Portland residents will be facing.  The end result will be huge increase in taxes, fuel prices, road maintenance costs, cut backs on the first defenders of your towns and more. You can read the ordinance by clicking here and you will see highlighted areas that greatly impact the local companies and terminals. more info can be found here:  http://www.southportland.org/departments/planning-and-development/citizen-initiated-waterfront-protection-ordinance/
