To Maine’s Congressional Delegation:
We, the undersigned Katahdin region business men and women, support the new Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument that was established on Aug. 24, 2016.
We firmly believe the new National Monument is an exciting destination that will attract new visitors to Maine’s inland forests, rivers, wildlife, and mountains, and the communities and businesses nearby. We also are confident that the National Monument over time will attract new residents to the region and that the combination of new visitors and residents will provide a badly needed economic boost to our region and the businesses located here.
A number of business owners in the region have already noted an increase in business as a result of the establishment of the new Monument. In addition, it appears that real estate sales have picked up measurably as a result of the National Monument.
For these reasons, we urge you to strongly support the National Monument and the many residents, businesses, and their employees who will benefit from it. We hope that you will work with us to help our communities take advantage of the opportunities the National Monument provides. Now is the time for all of us to pull together to ensure that we derive the maximum benefits possible from the Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument.
