"Focus on Law" piece by Severin Beliveau, a partner at Preti Flaherty in Portland. As an attorney and lobbyist, he advocates for the reform of Maine's Land Use Regulation Commission and the Board of Environmental Protection, both of which approve or deny permitting requests for development projects. Historically, once either of these entities assumes jurisdiction over a permit application, project timelines expand and costs increase--without concomitant improvement of the project from an environmental perspective. Other northern New England states have more business-friendly models for permit review.
