Plum Creek Hearings Continue 

Hearings continued Sunday in Augusta on Plum Creek’s plan for a major development in Maine’s Moosehead Lake area.

The second of four public hearings was held at the Augusta Civic Center. A hearing was held Saturday in Greenville, in the neighborhood of where the development would be.

Because of the high level of interest in the proposal, the Land Use Regulation Commission is streaming audio from the hearings on the Internet for those interested in listening in. Commission Director Catherine Carroll calls it’s an &quot:unprecedented&quot: step to help the public stay informed during the hearing process.

Two more hearings are scheduled later this month in Portland and again in Greenville.

Seattle-based Plum Creek wants a zoning change on 420,000 acres as part of a three-decade plan to develop 975 house lots and two resorts.
