What is a scoping session?

A scoping session is a meeting where the applicant explains their tentative proposal to members of the public. It’s an opportunity for members of the public to provide feedback on the proposal, prior to the applicant submitting a final application and an eventual public hearing. This meeting does not determine whether the proposal will be granted.
How to participate:

You can attend the session or contact the applicant. A copy of the draft lease application, which includes the applicant’s contact information is available on DMR’s Aquaculture webpage under ‘Maine Aquaculture Leases and LPAs.'
