PROUTS NECK ASSOCIATION
Formed in 1910, the Prouts Neck Association (“PNA”) has played an integral role in the
stewardship of Prouts Neck and its environs for over 100 years.
Included in the original mission statement of the PNA are provisions to “Obtain proper
care and maintenance of roads”, to “Preserve the trees and shrubbery from injury
and destruction,” to “Provide an authoritative means of communicating with the
officers of the town of Scarborough, and Generally to take all feasible measures
for the access to and the improvement of Prouts Neck.”
Today the PNA provides important services to the Prouts Neck area in the following six areas:
Police and Safety - providing police and security protection year-round for the benefit of all who come to the Prouts Neck area.
Road Maintenance - Maintenance of roads and signage.
Post Office - Managing a seasonal post office facility.
Library - The Charles E. Thomas Memorial Library
Environment - Prouts Neck Sanctuary, the Cliff Walk.
Outreach - Grants to various Scarborough and Portland area organizations in support of the larger community.
The PNA also acts as a coordinator of communications within the Prouts Neck
and with the Town of Scarborough and its officials.
