The Maine Land Use Planning Commission has begun a process for reviewing and possibly revising parts of its rules governing residential subdivision development. As part of this process, the Commission would like to gather advice and suggestions from property owners, individual stakeholders, businesses and other organizations familiar with the development process in the LUPC service area.

As a first step, the Commission conducted a survey of a small group of stakeholders in April of 2014, to get a sense for the types of issues that might come up in the review. We have now developed an online survey and are reaching out to a much larger group of stakeholders for advice and suggestions about how the Commission's subdivision rules can be improved. If you are interested in completing the survey, please follow the link below.

In addition, the Commission has retained the services of a professional facilitator to lead the next steps in the stakeholder process, and plans to hold a workshop and a series of three stakeholder meetings for discussions of its subdivision rules. The workshop is planned for October 8, 2014 and the first stakeholder meeting is tentatively scheduled for October 29, 2014, both in the Bangor/Brewer area.

Documents are provided in PDF and Microsoft Word formats. To view PDF documents, you will need the free Adober Reader. To view MS Word documents, you will need Microsoft Word or the free Word Viewer.
