Androscoggin river maps to highlight sites

Aug 18, 2009 (Sun Journal - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- LIVERMORE FALLS -- A project is under way to gather information to put together both a paper map and a companion online map to promote the region's recreational, historical and other assets along the Androscoggin River.


Organizers need the public's help to nominate places or features of interest in Canton, Jay, Livermore and Livermore Falls they think should be included. Nominations will be accepted until Sept. 30.

The project is an effort to strengthen ties between recreation, conservation and economic development in Maine's rural communities, said Stephen Engle, Center for Community GIS representative. Androscoggin Land Trust is leading the way on the project assisted by the Center for Community GIS, Jay, Livermore, Livermore Falls Chamber of Commerce and Maine Outdoor Heritage Fund. Androscoggin Land Trust received an $18,700 grant from Maine Outdoor Heritage and $10,000 from the Maine Department of Conservation for the project, Trust Executive Director Jonathan LaBonte said Friday.

A new Web site was developed to go along with the project at VisitAndroscoggin.com. It was launched during a Chamber meeting on Aug. 7.

Children will also have input on the project, Livermore Falls Town Manager Jim Chaousis said. Once information is gathered, it is expected the top 25 key places will be put on the paper map and digital map with profiles about each feature. With the help of the local chamber, and River Valley and Androscoggin County Chambers of Commerces tourism-related businesses for food, lodging and outdoor outfitters will accompany the online map. Organizers are also willing to stop by businesses and organizations to seek input on the map highlights.

The hope is to have the paper map ready at the end of this year and the online map done in 2010, Engle said.

LaBonte may be contacted at 782-2302.
