Conclusion (1 of 5) In a general sense, the island is encountering a brilliant time as far as the harmony between keeping up its legacy and its monetary base. Choices that will keep it that way, and in this way hold quite a bit of what makes Monhegan what it is and hold the financial base, are vital. From a natural perspective, in this microcosm of restricted area, new water, and waste release, any future development is extremely constrained. FutureMetrics – Bethel, ME

Slide 25

Conclusion (2 of 5) Like some alleged "eco-goals," a developing prevalence and a changing guest demographic are powers of progress that numerous find contrary with the past. Past and future will dependably be distinctive. However for Monhegan\'s economy, lost the past might be awful. As we noted in the Visitor Survey Report, the island\'s economy relies on upon the center of long haul summer occupants and travelers that desire to spend a week or so on the island . FutureMetrics – Bethel, ME

Slide 26

Conclusion (3 of 5) Monhegan Associates has assumed a key part as the island\'s territory steward. The support of the wild qualities of the greater part of the island and the look after the biological community has likely been pivotal for keeping the guest encounter an extremely positive one. However there is a conspicuous pressure amongst individuals and non-individuals. The vision for the island group\'s future must recognize the requirement for a working group and a traveler economy and additionally for an unblemished, confined, and wild goal. Open and delegate gatherings from which the choices made speak to the greater part of the island\'s partners must be the standard going ahead. FutureMetrics – Bethel, ME

Slide 27

Conclusion (4 of 5) The island\'s economy is right now solid. In any case, the eventual fate of that wellbeing relies on choices made at this point. Those choices will need to intercede the inalienable contrasts that we have seen amongst business and non-entrepreneurs. FutureMetrics – Bethel, ME

Slide 28

Conclusion (5 of 5) Finally: Monhegan is a retreat for the well off, a home to a working group, and a spot for guests from an expansive arrangement of foundations. However Monhegan has restricted options for economical development. What is the arrangement that the group has for adjusting these necessities inside these requirements? Monhegan\'s guests\' essential thought process in going to the island is undermined by the developing fame of the goal. What will Monhegan\'s people group decide the way to the future ought to be?
