Ellsworth To Be Home To New Englands First Monorail System.

APRIL FOOLS 😀

Ellsworth To Be Home To New Englands First Monorail System.

The city of Ellsworth received an application to construct a monorail system within the city on March 29. The application is to construct phase one of a three-phase plan to create a monorail network connecting Ellsworth to Boston with a stop in Portland. The application cited multiple reasons for Ellsworth to be the location of phase 1 including Ellsworth being the fastest growing Maine city, The opening of the new Jackson lab facility on Kingsland Crossing, and to alleviate traffic problems within Ellsworth’s urban core.

The system which will have both a north and south rail is roughly based off of The H-Bahn (“Hängebahn”, or “hanging railway”) in Dortmund and Düsseldorf, Germany the cars that will be connecting these three new England cities will be driverless and will be control from a central location to be determined. Phase 1 of the project will begin in Ellsworth connecting the downtown portion of the city to the new JAX’S facility, that will roughly follow high Street to Kingsland Crossing Phase 2 of the project will be connecting Ellsworth to Portland and phase 3 will be connecting Portland to Boston.

The application which goes into detail about how the system will work reads “The carrier is a hollow rectangular box girder with a slit in the bottom through which the cabin is suspended at the running gear, whose two axles carry the load with a rubber wheel on both sides providing both suspension and propulsion. Two wheels run horizontally along the top and bottom of the interior side walls of the carrier box, providing horizontal guidance. 400-volt three-phase current is taken from four conductors at the side wall. Above those, a cable provides a continuous wireless data connection between the train and the control center.”

Recently there are proposals to build lines in Shanghai and Wenzhou. A number of other Chinese cities are also studying the system. This will be the first of its kind in US

We Hope Everyone Has Wonderful April Fools Day This Weekend!

 

Imagine A Waterfront Destination In Downtown Ellsworth!

Let’s Make Ellsworth A Destination.

My favorite part of any town or city is the area by the water. City waterfronts are usually filled with parks, shops, restaurants, and entertainment… What about Ellsworth?  We do have some waterfront access but mostly it’s a mix of a construction company, garages, empty buildings and parking lots… If you want to enjoy our waterfront you’d need to leave the downtown shopping area and drive or walk to the boat launch. Ellsworth’s boat launch and intern Harbor Park isn’t much further from the Downtown shopping district than in other cities however it offers few businesses, views of the river, or even street furniture or street trees. It is not an enjoyable walk and pedestrians take second class to motor vehicles, and the busy traffic leaves little to no room for cyclists.

This Is What Our Waterfront Looks Like Now…

Now Imagine This!

These are some sketches the City of Ellsworth had created back in the early 2000s.

Now That Is A Waterfront I’d Be At Every day!

Having our downtown right next to the Union River is an incredible opportunity! We could use this to make our little city a much larger stopping place for locals and visitors. Cities all over the country have been focusing on revitalizations like this and I think it’s our turn.

WE DID IT! – The 17 Biggest Breakfasts In The Country

Congrats Syliva’s Cafe!

Delish chose Sylvia’s Cafe as #4 for one of the Biggest Breakfasts in the Country!

#4 The Hibernator at Sylvia’s Cafe, Ellsworth

Is this dish called The Hibernator ’cause it’ll knock you out cold? We think so. The Hibernator includes a tall stack of buttermilk pancakes, topped with a scrambler of your choice (3 scrambled eggs with veggies, ham, sausage or bacon, covered in cheddar cheese and served on a platter of home fries) and corned beef hash. But that’s not all! You also get two eggs cooked your way, a side of bacon, sausage, ham and one biscuit.

If you eat it all in 30 minutes, the dish is free…. Keep Reading at Delish.com
