NRCM supports the Moosehead Region Futures Committee statement that “Permanent conservation and sustainable community development are the bedrock foundations of the Moosehead Region’s future health and vitality.”
NRCM supports this effort by residents of the Moosehead region to secure permanent conservation and sustainable development that is appropriately located and meshes with the character of the region.
NRCM shares the perspective of those in the Moosehead Lake region who believe that permanently protecting public access, large tracts of undeveloped forest and the remote character of the Moosehead region is essential to its future.
NRCM also shares their opinion that future development in the region should be located in or near existing communities in the region, not scattered across the landscape.
The people of the Moosehead Lake region are showing great leadership. They know that protecting the area’s unique remote undeveloped character is the key to its future.
This effort shows that the people of the Moosehead Lake region support economic development in appropriate locations but not poorly planned development that endangers the remote unspoiled beauty on which their economy depends.
