MEDWAY — Medway residents are saying no to a proposed national park in northern Maine.

The majority of residents voted against the project in the non-binding Tuesday vote. East Millinocket residents are slated to vote in a similar non-binding referendum on Monday.

The proposed 75,000-acre national park project would also include a recreation area in the Katahdin area.

WCSH-TV reports the Medway board of selectmen does not endorse the park plan. Congress would have to approve a national park for it to be established. Maine Sen. Angus King says he wants to see how people in the area feel about the plan before he decides if he can support it.
