Maintenance of The Marginal Way

A Partnership that works

Ogunquit, by virtue of its Town Charter, is obligated to maintain the Marginal Way. It is assisted in this effort by the Ogunquit Marginal Way Committee and the Marginal Way Preservation Fund, Inc. (MWPF).
Ogunquit The Marginal Way Committee is responsible for identifying projects that enhance the aesthetics and safety of the Marginal Way and reporting its recommendations directly to the Select Board.​
Marginal Way Preservation Fund
The MWPF, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, has established a permanent endowment fund to aid the town with grants to help defray the costs associated with major renovation projects to maintain and preserve the Marginal Way.
Workers build a retaining wall to stabilize a seriously damaged section of the Marginal Way after the Patriots Day Storm of 2007. Private donors contributed $100,000.
