    This October, the Land Use Planning Commission will vote on a proposal to make close to 2 million acres of land in Maine's Unorganized Territories eligible for development .

The state's outdoor recreational tourism industry accounts for $8 billion each year, but nature-based tourism businesses like mine will suffer if our beautiful spots become miles of unsightly strip development and soon look just like everywhere else.
