LURC relocating Rangeley office

AUGUSTA - The Maine Land Use Regulation Commission (LURC) is relocating its field office that serves the Rangeley region. The current office located in the town of Rangeley no longer will be in use after April 30. The change is being made due to budget constraints.

Until a more permanent location can be found in the area, LURC customers still will be served by local LURC Regional Representative Erle Townsend.

Townsend will be based temporarily out of the LURC Augusta office, but still will conduct local site visits and inspections in the area. Townsend can be contacted at anytime by his cell phone at 670-7492 or by email at to set up a site visit or meeting.

The Commission also recently has been given approval to fill one of the two vacant positions in the region affected by the state hiring freeze. The approval is for the other local regional representative position that was vacated in late February.

“We appreciate the continued patience of our customers both during our recent lack of staffing and during our upcoming office relocation," Scott Rollins, LURC division manager of the Permitting and Compliance Division, said.
