"Cover Story" piece on the Upper Enchanted Township subdivision in Somerset Coun
"Cover Story" piece on the Upper Enchanted Township subdivision in Somerset County developed by Hank McPherson, which has evolved into the biggest large-lot division in the north woods, and the 150-acre Grace Pond has become the symbol for "40-acre specials," which threaten to turn the forest into a sprawling suburbia. The Grace Pond experience played a significant role in the Legislature's action this month on a bill to stop them in Maine's 10.5 million-acre unorganized territory. McPherson has carved the upper half of the township into about 140 lot, and the Land Use Regulation Commission has since issued building permits for 96 structures. Previously, the only development in the area was the Grace Pond Sporting Camps, with seven buildings.
