The collection contains papers of Donaldson Koons of Sidney, Maine, focusing primarily on his work as Chair of the Maine Land Use Regulation Commission (LURC) in 1973 and 1974. The LURC records concern both policy matters and day-to-day operations of the Commission. They involve activities to develop a comprehensive plan for land use and development, planning documents, legislation, correspondence, lawsuits involving the Commission, and documents outlining Koons' differences with the Commission's executive director at the time. Also included in the collection are a few folders, mostly correspondence, from Koons' service on the Maine Water and Air Environmental Improvement Commission, later the Environmental Improvement Commission, and material documenting his involvement with various environmental groups in the state.
