How smart is GrowSmart?

Al Diamon took GrowSmart Maine to task a couple weeks back. The anti-sprawl, pro-Maine's-future group is having money troubles. Mainebiz reports today that the organization is moving to downtown Portland

Why, you might ask. Well, it seems, as Mainebiz says, "The smaller and more centralized space will reduce rental expenses and is expected to cut staff commuting costs by thousands of dollars."

So an anti-sprawl group has figured out that driving from Portland to Yarmouth costs money. Maybe their new location will be on a bus line, or somewhere bikeable. Or maybe they'll just get parking spaces for the staff.
