AUGUSTA — Maine’s attorney general is appealing to the state supreme court to remove a barrier to Plum Creek’s massive development in the Moosehead Lake region.

Attorney General William Schneider announced today that he’s seeking to overturn a judge’s ruling that the Land Use Regulation Commission made procedural mistakes in approving the development. The Superior Court judge sent the project back to LURC for further consideration.

Maine Gov. Paul LePage weighed in today, saying the “seemingly endless use” of the state’s regulatory process to thwart development and job creation is a “travesty.”

The final plan calls for 821 house lots as well as two resorts with more than 1,200 housing units. It was approved in September 2009, nearly five years after plans were unveiled.
