Bar Harbor Residents Vote in Favor of Cruise

Royal Princess in Bar Harbor

Bar Harbor residents have voted in favor of expanding their cruise business, voting for the concept of turning a unused ferry terminal into a dedicated cruise ship berth during a Tuesday vote.

According to WDEA AM, Question 12 passed by a margin of 945 to 658 and Question 13, the Citizen Initiative, failed by a margin of 918 to 679.

The vote was a central issue in Bar Harbor. 

Article 12 will allow for a zoning change to turn the ferry terminal into a new facility for cruise ships.

Article 13, which did not pass, would have prohibited large vessels to berth and would have called for residents vote at a subsequent meeting on whether to set a daily limit on cruise ship visitors.
