Revised June 28, 2022

On March 21, 2021, the Commission received an application for a Development Permit pursuant to 12 M.R.S § 685-B (Application DP 3639-F) from Big Lake Development, LLC (Applicant). The Applicant is seeking approval for the redevelopment of the pre-Commission ski resort located at the former Big Squaw Mountain Ski Resort in Big Moose Twp., Piscataquis County. The subject parcel is approximately 1,204 acres in size and described as Maine Revenue Service Map PI009, Plan 01, Lot 2.2. The parcel is located within a General Development Subdistrict (D-GN) and Mountain Area Protection Subdistrict (P-MA).

Redevelopment includes a new hotel, base lodge, tap house, outdoor center, event center pavilion, swimming pool, maintenance garage, ski and surface lifts, and new ziplines. The Applicant also proposes infrastructure improvements, including electric utility lines, replacement snowmaking lines, a mid-mountain pump station, vehicle access and parking, a potable water system, and sanitary district sewer lines.

On February 9, 2022, the Commission approved a public hearing request for the pending application DP 3639-F once all information needed to complete the review has been submitted. Once the LUPC staff completes gathering and analyzing information, the Commission will begin its formal public hearing process, currently anticipated for early June 2022.
