CARIBOU, Maine —  The Maine Land Use Planning Commission staff will hold an open house and public meeting starting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 25, in Caribou regarding the Fish River Chain of Lakes Concept Plan.

The session will take place at the Caribou Inn and Convention Center, with an open house at 6 p.m. and the public meeting at 6:30. Staff will update the public on the recent approval of the Fish River Chain of Lakes Concept Plan, describe next steps and answer questions.

At the open house, attendees may ask questions and learn more about the concept plan. Then, the public meeting will include a brief presentation by the LUPC staff summarizing the concept plan, which will be followed by an opportunity for the public to ask questions.

These sessions should be most helpful for existing leaseholders, real estate professionals and others interested in real estate transactions, individuals and organizations interested in development opportunities in Aroostook County, and individuals interested in the implementation of the conservation and public access provisions of the plan.
