“It’s probably the biggest development project in at least 25 years up here. We really think this is going to improve the experience for skiers and riders. It’s going to introduce a lot of real estate inventory, a ton of demand for real estate this is area.” -Sugarloaf Marketing Director Ethan Austin
Sugarloaf is planning to hold a meeting next week to present to the public more details of its 10-year expansion plan including adding196 housing units, 140 acres of new terrain and a chairlift to the west side of the mountain.The July 29 the meeting is part of the application process through the Maine Department of Environmental Protection. It will be an open forum where people can ask questions and voice concerns about the project. The project, called Sugarloaf 2030, was first announced in February of last year before the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic took hold in Maine.
“So, that sort of slowed down some of the processes, probably pushed back the timeline by around a year or so, but none of the work ever stopped during that time.”
The July 29th meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. in the King Pine Room at the base lodge. Make sure to set a reminder if you’d like to participate.
