The Maine Land Use Regulation Commission last week voter 5-1 to reverse an earlier decision concerning LURC's ten-year comprehensive plan for the state's unorganized territories. The vote came after LURC members Steve Wight, Steve Mason and Malachi Anderson received visits from paper industry officials about the plan. The visits came after the public comment period on the plan was closed, and some critics contend that the three commissioners should resign from LURC. Details; comments from Jonathan Carter of Ban clear-cutting, Richard Barringer of the Muskie Institute, Sandy Neily of the Maine Audubon Society, Jym St. Pierre of Restore: The North Woods and others; related editorial.
