About

The Lincoln County Regional Planning Commission got our start in 2010, when Lincoln County municipalities teamed up with the County to establish the commission under Maine statutes (MRSA Title 13, Chapter 81, and Title 30-A, Chapter 119, Section 2321).  We’ve combined two long-standing county services, Lincoln County Economic Development Office, and County Planning, into one organization.

 Our goals:

  • Increase employment and income
  • Promote sustainable land use, transportation, and housing development

 Major activities:

  • Provide land use, transportation, economic, and community development planning and technical assistance to towns, businesses, and organizations in Lincoln County
  • Encourage business retention and expansion through business counseling, financing, and workforce training and education opportunities
  • Provide advisory services to planning board members, boards of selectmen, economic development committees, other municipal officials, community groups and businesses located or seeking to locate in the County
  • Promote and carry out cooperative arrangements and actions within the County

 How is LCRPC funded?

Through a combination of county funds and grants received from state agencies such as the Maine Department of Transportation, Department of Conservation, Agriculture and Forestry, and the Department of Economic and Community Development
