'Our Victories Are Temporary, but Our Defeats Are Permanent'

Plum Creek Timber Co. proposes the largest development in the history of Maine: 975 house lots, two resorts, golf course, marina, and three RV parks around Moosehead Lake. In September 2009, following contentious hearings, Maine’s Land Use Regulation Commission approves a scaled-down development that would also protect 363,000 acres. In April 2011, a Maine Superior Court judge rules that LURC has used a faulty process (no public hearing) and sends the matter back for further consideration.
