BANGOR, Maine — The Maine Land Use Regulation Commission is holding what’s expected to be its final deliberations on Plum Creek Timber Co.’s massive development plan for the Moosehead Lake region.

LURC gave its approval in September to the project that includes nearly 1,000 house lots, two large resorts and more than 400,000 acres of land conservation.

No public comment will be permitted at the meeting Tuesday in Bangor, although parties who submitted recent comments will have a brief opportunity to address the commission before deliberations begin.

Seattle-based Plum Creek offered its proposal four years ago. The plan has been revised three times, but critics still maintain that it calls for too much development in key areas, including Lily Bay. printed on April 30, 2017
