Damariscotta, Maine

This is a community made up of several villages including Damariscotta, Nobleboro, Waldoboro, Edgecomb, Newcastle and Pemaquid region. Wal-Mart is also trying to invade their community so they have a website providing the facts about Wal-Mart.

Today is a special day for residents of the Damariscotta region. They are voting on size caps for big box stores. Just a couple days ago Wal-Mart supporters sent out a mailing that over estimated the amount of tax revenue the Town would get from a Wal-Mart (read more here.)

It seems the town did an economic impact study paid for by Wal-Mart (can be found here). Reviews of the deficiencies of the report can be found here and here.

Lot's more information on this website.
