The U.S. Department of Interior has announced that it will be reviewing Maine’s Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument through a 60-day public comment period starting May 12.
In a press release, the Interior Department says it will review the designation to determine whether it was “made without adequate public outreach and coordination with relevant stakeholders.”
Katahdin Woods and Waters is one of 27 national monuments it’s reviewing under a presidential order.
Maine Gov. Paul LePage, who opposes the monument, tweeted his approval.
