A new task force requested by Gov. Paul LePage will hear differing views about how Maine's Land Use Regulation Commission should be reformed. Since its creation in 1971, LURC has been responsible for residential and non-residential planning, permitting, and zoning for Maine's unorganized territories without municipal governments. Concerns have been raised by some about LURC's perceived bias towards preservation over economic development, a very slow permitting process, and a lack of oversight. Some suggest that part of LURC's duties, such as smaller scale requests, could be turned over to counties, but others feel that counties may not have enough resources to handle these petitions.
