*Property tax estimates were prepared by the Maine Center for Business and Economic Research at the University of Southern Maine in consultation with CMP. These estimates were based on preliminary engineering design in 2017 and are subject to change as the design is finalized.
"Chesterville has a power line that CMP owns and we appreciate the fact that our town is well served by Central Maine Power. We know that there are numerous proposals in front of you; that this proposal is the shortest route (from Canada); that is incorporates overhead construction methods and therefore it costs a lot less than some of the others you are reviewing.
