Large-scale development OKed for Maine woods

A resort and residential development that would be the largest of its kind in Maine has been unanimously approved by a state planning board.

Plum Creek Timber Co.'s proposal was approved Wednesday, nearly five years after the Seattle-based company announced plans to build two resorts and more than 2,000 housing units in the Moosehead Lake area.

Critics say the decision threatens the character of the North Woods made famous by writer Henry David Thoreau.

Plum Creek must obtain additional approvals before construction, and opponents say they intend to sue to stop the development.

Prior to the vote, police arrested several protesters who disrupted the meeting, yelled at board members and accused them of selling out.
