Auburn residents have not had to deal with the on-going saga of the Bates Mill across the Androscoggin River in Lewiston. Much celebrated for its "unique saw tooth roof" by enthusiastic supporters of re-development, Mill No. 5 just has sort of sat there with very little happening. It narrowly escaped the wrecking ball a few years ago and has seen a flurry of exciting, front page level plans. It still sits.
Merge and it's your problem, as well, Auburn.
