Driver Rolls Down Munjoy Hill

At around 6:30 PM on March 8, a 2003 Ford pickup turned over while traveling south heading toward Washington Avenue from the Eastern Promenade.
The driver, William McIntosh, 34, of Auburn, had lost control of the vehicle after making a turn, and was charged with operating under the influence, after being tested at the hospital.

A female passenger was ejected into the bushes, and McIntosh was unable to get out of the truck. MEDCU transported both people to Maine Medical Center to be treated for injuries that were not serious.

The Friends of the Eastern Promenade announced that it has formed and held its first organizational meeting. The group is a community organization committed to preserving the significant historic public landscape, protecting its environmental integrity and enhancing recreational use. The 2004 Eastern Promenade Master Plan will guide the organization’s activities.

Two committees have been formed: one to work on establishing by-laws and 501-c-3 status, and the other to prioritize a project list to support and manage the implementation priorities planning and improvements throughout the Park.

On two separate occasions the group has participated in walking tours of the Promenade with Parks and Recreation staff Tom Civiello, Jeff Tarling and Phil Labbe. Group members have attended monthly meetings of the Friends of the Parks Commission since September and have met with Deb Andrews, Historic Preservation Manager.

Initial members of Friends of the Eastern Promenade include: Ann Archino-Howe, Berry Manter, Colleen Bedard, Hilary Bassett, Joan Dennis, Diane Davison, T. Scott Teas and R. John Wuesthoff.
