An Act To Change the Borders of the Saco River Corridor

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 38 MRSA 953, 2nd , as amended by PL 1995, c. 171, 3, is further amended to read:

The corridor also includes the lands adjacent to these rivers to a distance of 500 250 feet as measured on a horizontal plane from the normal or mean high water line of these rivers or to the edge of the 100-year floodplain if that extends beyond 500 250 feet, up to a maximum of 1,000 250 feet.

SUMMARY

This bill reduces the size of the Saco River Corridor. Under current law, the corridor includes lands adjacent to the rivers within the corridor to a distance of 500 feet from the high water line of the rivers or the edge of the floodplain if that extends beyond 500 feet, up to a maximum of 1,000 feet. The bill changes the distance to 250 feet from the high water line or to the edge of the floodplain if that extends beyond 250 feet, up to a maximum of 250 feet.
