AUGUSTA, Maine — Plum Creek said it’s revising its plan for a development in Maine’s Moosehead Lake region. Earlier versions of the plan drew opposition from environmental groups.
The Seattle-based Plum Creek said it changed its plan in response to suggestions from interested parties, including federal and state agencies.
The company said it hopes the revisions address the concerns of some opponents while meeting conservation, economic development and public access needs. The revised plan has not yet been submitted to Maine’s Land Use Regulation Commission.
In January, LURC said it had suspended hearings that were to begin in a few months after Plum Creek said it wanted to make changes in a proposal that included 975 house lots and two resorts. The revision still calls for 975 house lots outside of the resorts.
Plum Creek said its new plan calls for a third less shoreline development. It said there will be increased development in less-sensitive areas, but those details are not finalized.
It also calls for more development in the Moose Mountain resort near Greenville and more acres permanently set aside to contain sprawl.
