Plans for Eco Resort Quietly Alive

WINTER HARBOR — It’s been months since there has been any obvious activity related to plans for a large-scale eco resort project on the Schoodic Peninsula.


And there was no response from Cecelia Ward, a spokesman for the developers, to a recent e-mail asking about the status of the project.

The only visible change is that three logging roads off the Moore Road that are part of the property have been posted against hunting.

However, Sheridan Steele, superintendent of Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor and on the peninsula, said a key consultant told him the project is very much alive.

“The bottom line message was they still believe in the concept and they still want to move forward,” Steele said Friday.
