ABOUT ROUTES 2 & 4
The parcels of land are situated on Routes 2 and 4 (“Route 2/4”) just south of Farmington’s historic downtown and located between Hannaford and Wal-Mart. Route 2/4 is the state’s major east west highway leading from New Hampshire to Bangor (and continuing by Route 9 to the maritime provinces of Canada). It is also the principle route which funnels traffic to Maine’s three largest skis areas – Sugarloaf, Saddleback and Sunday River as well as to both Rangeley Lake, a four season tourist destination, and to Quebec Province to the northwest via Route 27.
The farmington area
Farmington is the county seat of Franklin County with regional administrative buildings including the registry of deeds, courthouse and a Department of Health and Human Services office. It is a prime commercial hub of western Maine and the foothills area. It has a local population of almost 8,000 people; however, it draws people from all parts of Franklin County and beyond with a trade area which includes just under 60,000 people within 20 miles. Farmington draws from beyond this range, but more so, for residents who live to the west and northwest in towns that include Rangeley, Carrabassett Valley, Stratton, Kingfield and Emden among others.
Farmington is the home of the University of Maine at Farmington, Franklin Memorial Hospital (serving the entire region), the Nordica Homestead and Memorial Auditorium as well as the annual Farmington Fair.
The James W. Sewall Company, an engineering firm based in the Bangor area, recently provided some concept plans for how the land might be divided or subdivided. These plans were reviewed with town officials who endorsed the concept plan in theory and were very enthused to work with the owner and a purchaser. A purchaser/developer can engage Sewall for further consultation. The land has not gone through subdivision which may not be required with simple divisions of some parcels. Also, some modifications to the parcel lines may be possible. Please be aware that the word “parcel” is consistently meant to denote a “proposed parcel” based upon the Sewall Concept Plans and is not intended to suggest that any land sections have been approved by the town as a subdivision.
*Please note that some of the concept plans for the parcels are full-size drawings and the file sizes are quite large. The brochure offers these as scaled down and cropped parcel concept images.
A "Concept Overview" plan of parcels by Sewall Company is available here. See table below for individual concept plans.
