LURC Reform Commission to Hold Bangor Session
(November 29, 2011)
AUGUSTA, Maine – The LURC Reform Commission, established by the Maine Legislature to recommend possible reforms to the Land Use Regulation Commission (LURC), will hold its next work session on Thursday, Dec. 1, in Bangor.
The meeting’s agenda consists of a day-long work session for the Commission members. As it is the last planned meeting, no public listening session will be held.
The Commission members are expected to spend the morning completing discussions begun at the Nov. 17 work session in Greenville. During the afternoon work session, the members will complete any work from the morning session and consider the substance, framework and time frame for reporting to the Legislature’s Joint Standing Committee on Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry.
The next meeting will be:
10 a.m.-4 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 1, Wellman Commons, Bangor Masonic Center (former Bangor Theological Seminary), Bangor.
The public is welcome to attend.
The 13-member commission, appointed jointly by Gov. Paul LePage, Senate President Kevin Raye and House Speaker Robert Nutting, so far has held five meetings, including public listening sessions. The Reform Commission must complete its work by Dec. 15 and submit its final report and recommendations no later than Jan. 4, 2012.
The LURC Reform Commission, representing diverse constituencies and geographic regions, is chaired by Bill Beardsley, Maine Department of Conservation commissioner, with Sarah Medina of Dixmont as vice-chair.
