Charting Maine's Future, the landmark Brookings Institution study sponsored by GrowSmart Maine, said that to achieve sustainable prosperity we must streamline and restructure Maine government. In doing so, we free up critical resources to invest in our future.
GrowSmart Maine commissioned a follow-up report (written by EnvisionMaine) called Reinventing Maine Government that gathers viewpoints from varying perspectives.
The report lays out a number of challenges including:
The report recommends that we reexamine the essential structure and culture of our government through a comprehensive plan, realistic timetable, constant dialogue, and public pressure to move forward.

Now we need to know what you think. GrowSmart Maine's members are Democrats, Republicans and Independents; environmentalists and developers; business leaders, non-profits, fisheries and wildlife enthusiasts, agricultural experts, lawmakers and many others. We have one thing in common. We care about Maine, and we believe that we can best find common sense, strategic solutions by working together.
As we formulate our priorities for the coming year, we would like your reaction to the Reinventing Maine Government report, or any of the GrowSmart Maine reports -- including Charting Maine's Future.
