What is LURC


Looking for a remote getaway in Maine.  A state with the largest contiguous undeveloped land mass in the Northeast, the Maine Land Use Regulation Commission(LURC) has jurisdiction over approximately 10.4 million acres of land in the state (approximately 50% of all land in Maine.) Created in 1971 as a response to the boom in recreational real estate development of the 60’s LURC is the largest planning and zoning authority around wielding enormous power and shaping public policy. When buying property in the less populous regions of the state be sure to run your grandiose plans for development by LURC so as not be stymied.  Recent headline stories with LURC jurisdiction include the Moosehead Lake and Saddleback Ski Resort redevelopments.  Read their land use plan here
