Changes to Northern Maine Recreation Land Up For Debate
ASHLAND, Maine (AP) — Maine officials are working on a new plan for the management of public lands in the far northern part of the state.
The state is looking at potential changes to the Northern Aroostook Region Public Reserved Lands Management Plan, which was adopted more than 10 years ago. The Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands is holding a meeting on the subject in Ashland on Wednesday.
The management plan concerns land in Aroostook County, which is the largest county by land area east of the Rocky Mountains. It's also one of the most rural, and is a destination for hunters and outdoors lovers.
Changes could include developing new campsites and making an existing campsite accessible to all-terrain vehicles.
The state is taking written comments on the plan until May 23.
