The Land Use Planning Commission, or LUPC, oversees zoning and development in the state’s unorganized territories—a huge swath encompassing millions of acres of land. Its proposed changes to how Maine’s North Woods are regulated are drawing controversy. Why were the changes proposed and what will they mean for a huge swath of Maine? This topic is also being covered by Maine Public reporter Robbie Feinberg.
