Abstract/ Summary

Plum Creek’s “Concept Plan” is a petition requesting LURC to rezone approximately 426,000 acres in the Moosehead Lake area. According to LURC’s fact sheet, a concept plan is a landowner-created, long-range plan of the “landowner’s intent”, a flexible alternative to traditional subdivision and development plans. It is not a business plan, a project plan, or a concrete real estate development plan. Webster’s unabridged dictionary defines “concept” as a “thought”, “an idea,” a “notion”, which is precisely what Plum Creek’s concept plan is--a thought, an idea, a scheme (plan) for making, arranging or doing something, having in mind a purpose.
