This is the Official website for Addison, Maine.

     As of the census of 2010, there were 1,266 people, 529 househoulds, and 359 families residing in the town.  In the town the population was spread with 23.5% under the age of 18; 6.1% from 18 to 24, 26.8% from 25 to 44, 29.5% from 45 to 64, and 14.1% were 65 years or older. The median age was 40 years.  For every 100 females there 96.9 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 96.4 males.

 The population of Addison itself has experienced slight long-term growth, but with an aging population The number of school age children has declined, shown by decreasing local school enrollments.  As with the whole of Washington County, the town has seen a decrease in the average household size.  In addition, more retiree and single parent households can be found.  Limited employment opportunities are the main reason for the decline in the number of young families residing in Addison.

 There are 3 sectors of employment for Addison are agriculture, forestry, and fisheries, mining, Education, Health and social services, and Retail.  

Addison has NUMEROUS recreational opportunities that derive from the natural resources of the town, the region, and some municipal recreational facilities. Some of the town's most important recreational resources rely on shorefront access, which we should seek to maintain and improve.  aDDISON cURRENTLY OFFERS PROTECTION TO ITS NATURAL RESOURCES WITH LOCALLY ADOPTED SHORELAND ZONING, LAND USE AND SUBDIVISION REGULATIONS.  tHESE ORDINANCE PROVISIONS WILL BE UPDATED TO BE CONSISTENT WITH THE MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS OF STATE AND FEDERAL REGULATIONS AND IS MANDATED TO ENSURE THAT aDDISON RETAINS ITS FISHING VILLAGE CHARACTER.  tHE IMPORTANCE OF COMMERCIAL fISHERIES CANNOT BE OVERESTIMATED.  pROTECTING PUBLIC SHORE AND WATER ACCESS AND MAINTAINING A HEALTHY BALANCE OF THE INDUSTRY AND NATURAL bEAUTY IS cRUCIAL ESPECIALLY IN LIGHT OF THE RATE OF COASTAL DEVELOPMENT. 

IN THE LATE 1980S AND EARLY NINETIES THE ECONOMY OF ADDISON IS, AS LOUIS POLCH HAS CHARACTERIZED IT, "A VARIATION ON THE THEME OF GETTING BY...THROUGH A SKILLFUL and, in some cases, an ingenious combination of clamming, lobstering, worming, and wreathing."   There is also one other seasonal industry Louis POlch forgot to mention and is as vitally important to this town.  That is the Blueberry season and the raking and harvesting of blueberries.

For a small fishing village on the coast of maine, we have a lot to offer. So, sit back and take in that ocean breeze and salt air and enjoy the Town of Addison, Maine!
