The Brownstone Quorum, Inc. is an outgrowth of an informal group of Portland residents who gathered in late 1999 following the Town's acquisition of the brownstone quarries and riverfront property. The group's goal was to provide assistance and support to the town government as they determined the ultimate use of these properties.
