Maine State Planning Office - Land Use Planning Program

The Maine SPO's Land Use Planning Program provides technical assistance to municipalities, advises the legislature, coordinates with other state agencies, and, in general, advocates for sound land use planning.

In addition to direct work with towns, reviews of plans and ordinances, coordination with other state and federal agencies, the Land Use Team participates and supports several Smart Growth partnership efforts, including the Eco/Eco Smart Growth Forum and the GrowSmart Maine. We also research cutting edge and emerging land use policy issues and work to implement change at the state and local levels in Maine. We advise and work with the Legislature on Land Use and Growth Management issues, including staffing the Community Preservation Advisory Committee.
