Maine Alliance for Road Associations

The Maine Alliance for Road Associations

About Us

The Maine Alliance for Road Associations (MARA) was formed circa 2005 by Betsy Connor Bowen. MARA is a Non-Profit Corporation with three Officers and a Legislative Advocate comprising its Board of Directors: Andrew L. Allen, President/Webmaster; Peter E. Dunn, Vice-President/Treasurer; Betsy Connor Bowen, Secretary/Webmaster Emeritus; Roberta Manter, Legislative Advocate.

None of us is an attorney. Therefore, we cannot interpret law or give legal advice. Opinions expressed by Officer/Directors in replies to member emails or posted to the Discussion Forum are their own, based on experience, and do not represent MARA or its Board.    

Our Alliance remains an online volunteer-sponsored community in response to the need to disseminate information to property owners who wish to form road associations for sharing maintenance costs of private ways under the continually evolving: 

Maine Private Ways Statute

MARA sponsors Road Conferences that feature speakers on road association matters of interest such as road association formation, operation, and private road maintenance.

Our "Message Board" Forum is supported by its members and serves as an information clearinghouse on all matters of importance to road associations.
