CUMBERLAND, Maine (NECN) -- Maine has more than 6,000 miles of shoreline, but access to that high priced real estate is increasingly limited.
the town of
umberland has a chance to buy a piece of that gold coast,
voters decide it's worth it. Cumberland has almost four miles of coastline abutting Casco Bay. Right now, the public has access to only 100 feet of it, divided into two rocky 50 ft. parcels.
But that could soon change.
On election day, voters in this town of 7,200,will be asked if they want the town to borrow $3 million to buy a 23 acre parcel of land off the Foreside Road.
