Abstract

"The Talk of Maine" piece on Seattle-based Plum Creek Timber's 30-year plan for development, conservation, and forest-management of 465,000 acres in the Moosehead Lake region. The project is at least four times larger than any project ever proposed for the unorganized territories and will have a huge impact. Maine's Land Use Regulatory Commission (LURC) will have to hire more staff to handle the project's details. LURC lost 20 percent of its funding in the last budget even as development reached an all-time high in the unorganized territories. The company itself has never attempted a development project of this scale. Taken together, the 800 to 1,200 camps in the plan would double the size of Greenville, a town which sees much to like about the plan.
