AUGUSTA — The Maine Land Use Regulation Commission will hold the first of a series of educational seminars for property owners and leaseholders in Maine’s unorganized townships and plantations from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 16, at the Heritage Motor Inn in Millinocket.
According to David Boulter, commission director, the series of seminars is part of a new emphasis on public outreach aimed at increasing awareness and compliance with land use standards and helping people avoid violations. The seminars will cover such topics as building permit requirements, shoreline setbacks, determining the high-water mark, and shoreline clearing standards.
The commission hopes to reach the many people in the Millinocket area who own property in the unorganized areas. Prior to the seminar, LURC staff will be available from 3 to 5 p.m. to offer personal asistance and guidance on permit applications.
The commission plans to schedule other public outreach seminars in various locations in the unorganized territories during the summer. The public is invited.
