Feedback sought on plan to manage rural Maine land
BINGHAM, Maine (AP) — Maine is looking for the public’s feedback about how to better manage tens of thousands of acres of rural land and woods.
The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry’s Bureau of Parks and Lands is working on the final draft of a management plan about the state’s Upper Kennebec region. The plan will steer the way the bureau manages areas such as Sugar Island Public Reserved Lands and undeveloped state park areas.
The area includes lands to the east and west of Moosehead Lake, which is one of the most popular tourism spots in inland Maine.
The department’s holding a meeting about the management plan on Feb. 7 at Quimby Middle School in Bingham. The agency says staff will present an overview of the plan before taking comments.
