The City of Saco, elected officials, and concerned citizens from across the community have worked for decades to resolve the challenges created by the Army Corps of Engineers’ structure known as the Camp Ellis Jetty. Visit this page to learn more about the Section 111 project. 

The Saco and Scarborough communities are partnering with the Greater Portland Council of Governments (GPCOG) and the Portland Area Comprehensive Transportation System (PACTS) to make Route 1 safer and more accessible for all modes of travel, including motor vehicles, public transit, bicycles, and pedestrians. The study will create a plan for a business-friendly road that encourages people to walk, bike and use transit.

ROUTE 112 
The Saco Route 112 / Exit 36 Area Transportation Study was launched in April 2018 and will conclude early in 2019. This study will evaluate short and long-term solutions to the morning and evening traffic congestion that occurson Route 112 and surrounding roads. Study recommendations will also include bicycle and pedestrian improvements at key locations.

On February 20, 2018, the City Council voted to adopt the 2018 update of Saco’s Comprehensive Plan. The 2018 Comp Plan update was the result of nearly two years of review and discussion by the adhoc committee and City Staff. As a community, our next step is to update our Zoning Ordinances to align with the City of Saco’s land use vision: The most forward-thinking land use policies in the State of Maine that ensure financial stability, environmental sustainability, and provides opportunities and accessibility to all.
