Maine's Land Use Regulatory Committee will be meeting today and tomorrow to discuss Plum Creek's rezoning application. (Listen to the deliberations live here)

The Natural Resources Council of Maine and Maine Audubon held a press conference this morning to oppose the draft recommendations proposed by LURC staff, which would allow for a housing development on Lily Bay. According to a statement on the group's website, public comment on the issue has been very one-sided, with 1,516 comments submitted in opposition to the plan during the latest round of consultations, and only seven comments supporting the development.
