Statewide Standards for Timber Harvesting in Shoreland Areas
Statewide Standards for Timber Harvesting and Related Activities in Shoreland Areas will be taking effect in certain municipalities January 1, 2013.
On January 1, 2013 organized towns that have decided to adopt statewide standards for timber harvesting and related activities in shoreland areas will have statewide standards go into effect.
Towns that have either elected to retain their old shoreland zoning ordinance for timber harvesting or not taken action on statewide standards will continue under their old shoreland zoning rules until they take action.
Areas under the administration of the Land Use Planning Commission (formerly know as LURC) will also continue under current rules for the time being.
