Like the police officer who parks his cruiser at the edge of town waiting for drivers to put their vehicles into overdrive, LURC stands as the unpopular gatekeeper over the unorganized territories. Without a statewide perspective on development of these 10.5 million acres, the resources that are too large to belong to any one owner, corporate or individual, could be abused or lost. LURC can be improved, but it should not be rebuilt with fatal flaws.
