The City of Portland is partnering with Casco Bay Lines to identify ways to improve the landside infrastructure on Peaks Island to enhance its safety, comfort and efficiency. This project, the Peaks Island Ferry Landside Operations Study, includes an effort to gather input from stakeholders on issues and opportunities with respect to existing landside ferry-related infrastructure.

The meeting will feature a presentation of findings from Phases 1 and 2; a discussion of potential study recommendations; and an opportunity for you to provide your input. Information to access the meeting via Zoom can be found on the project website.
