This publication was developed in the hopes of being helpful to as many people as possible. It draws from many of the approaches and tools already employed in the state, as well as tools from other states that are applicable to Maine. It does not need to be read cover-to-cover in order to be useful. Readers can choose their area of interest and glean as much information as they want.
