Eaton Peabody Attorneys present to EDCM and MEREDA on regulation reform in unorganized territories
January 31, 2013
Bill Ferdinand and Jon Pottle recently presented to the Economic Development Council of Maine and the Maine Real Estate & Development Association an update on land use planning and regulation reform in the unorganized territories. They were joined by Nick Livesay, the LUPC Executive Director, and Andy Sturgeon of James W. Sewall Co.
Legislation was passed in 2012 to focus the former Land Use Regulation Commission on regional planning and to encourage appropriate economic development in the 10 million acres of unorganized territory in Maine. Eaton Peabody worked with land owners to draft and advocate for the reforms in the Maine Legislature, and our land use attorneys continue to assist land owners in rulemaking and permitting before the revised Land Use Planning Commission.
