The Waterfront Alliance is a nonprofit civic organization committed to protecting and promoting the working waterfront of South Portland and Portland, Maine. In its role as a neutral convener of inclusive conversations, the Alliance hosted a public forum on a proposed cold storage warehouse on the Portland waterfront. The forum provided an opportunity for a panel of experts to address public questions about the cold storage business model and storage capacity, zoning, view and traffic impact, and more.
