The ongoing development efforts of the East-West Corridor in Maine continue to place significant demands on the time and energy of Cianbro Chairman Pete Vigue. To help distribute some of that demand, Pete has enlisted the aid of a former land developer who has a long history of organizing consulting teams, and working with municipalities and regulatory agencies in Maine. Darryl Brown has accepted the position as Program Manager for the East-West Corridor. Darryl's sole focus will be on the Corridor and on bolstering efforts to see the Corridor become a reality.
For nearly four decades prior to joining the project team, Darryl was the founder and owner of Main-Land Development Consultants, Inc., a firm which he sold in order to accept an appointment as Commissioner of the Maine Department of Environmental Protection. As the leader of MLDC, Darryl provided a host of services including planning, surveying, environmental mapping, soils testing, project visualization, engineering and permitting – elements that mirror the continued efforts regarding the East-West Corridor.
"The East-West Corridor proposal has captured my attention," said Darryl. "The project has the potential to create large numbers of jobs as well as providing huge economic opportunities for the entire State. Most of the issues that will need to be addressed are what I’ve done for over thirty five years and I feel comfortable with both the technical as well as the political aspects."
"Darryl brings a high energy level to this project," said Pete, "along with a commitment to job creation and economic development, and a solid knowledge of the regulatory review process which will serve the State of Maine and this project very well"
