Work began last week in Bar Harbor on a new hotel, which necessitated the destruction of several homes. Though this development was permitted according to the local zoning regulations, is it good for Bar Harbor? If the downtown is dominated by high-end hotels, will it lose its charm, its character? Or will market forces effectively create a balance?
Is Bar Harbor at risk of losing its character?
