It’s important for landowners to participate in the upcoming hearing on the LUPC certification process. The document defines the land use standards that are addressed by LUPC when an application for a project in the unorganized territory is submitted to DEP for Site Law permit. Environmental advocates have argued that the CLUP itself should be a compliance standard. Land owners have fought to make sure that the CLUP is used to guide zoning districts and land use rules, and is not itself a land use standard for each permit. We will send out more information about MFPC concerns prior to the hearing.
