The access to one of southern Maine's great beaches is being threatened. Higgins Beach is one of the most popular beaches because of it's proximity to Portland and easy access. A small group of landowners in the community are trying to ban on street parking, and the newly purchased town lot will have diminished spaces and possible year round charging- if it's even open in the off season. It seems they have the town council's ear as well. We need to act now. Time is running short.
