LURC Approves Rangeley Development Plan
Augusta, Maine - (January 18, 2001) A new plan and zoning rules adopted by the Land Use Regulation Commission at its November 2, 2000 meeting became effective January 1, 2001. The plan and rules - which cover Rangeley Plantation, Sandy River Plantation, Dallas Plantation, Magalloway Plantation, Lincoln Plantation, Adamstown Township, Richardsontown Township, and Townships C, D, & E - use new development zones and standards to outline areas that are appropriate for development over the next 20 years.
Property owners who are going to build, renovate, purchase land, or develop a business in these areas should contact their local Land Use Regulation Commission office as they have in the past. LURC staff will inform them of the new rules and any changes related to their project.
The plan and rules were developed over a period of two years by the staff of the Land Use Regulation Commission and local residents and property owners. "The intent of this plan is provide a reasonable and responsible program for development, while continuing to protect the resources and character of the area," noted LURC staff planner Holly Dominie.
