The Piscataquis County commissioners were unanimous Tuesday in their opposition to a proposal to abolish the Land Use Regulation Commission and turn its zoning and planning board functions in the Unorganized Territory over to county governments.

‘’The people that are pushing the wholesale elimination of LURC seem to be more interested in making a political statement than looking at the public policy details, which is what has caused us  to pause in this process,’’ Commissioner Tom Lizotte said Tuesday.
