Maine Futures Community Mapper

The Maine Futures Community Mapper (MFCM) is a web-based tool that helps Mainers: (1)identify locations that are most suitable for future development, conservation, agricultural uses, or forestry; (2) identify potential conflicts and compatibilities between different land uses; and(3) envision their future landscape under different possible scenarios of change.

Ensuring a future where Mainers can count on vibrant communities with vital economic development, coupled with a sustainable natural resource base, requires thoughtful planning. We developed the MFCM in partnership with dozens of stakeholders from the economic development, conservation, forestry, and agriculture communities to assist planners, citizens, policy-makers, and scientists in planning for our collective future.

 

Find a Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCCs)

Find an LCC here. The 22 LCCs collectively form a network of resource managers and scientists who share a common need for scientific information and interest in conservation. Each LCC brings together federal, state, and local governments along with Tribes and First Nations, non-governmental organizations, universities, and interested public and private organizations. Our partners work collaboratively to identify best practices, connect efforts, identify science gaps, and avoid duplication through conservation planning and design. 

Managing the landscapes that provide our natural and cultural resources has become increasingly challenging. With the signing of Secretarial Order No. 3289, the Department of the Interior launched the Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) to better integrate science and management to address climate change and other landscape scale issues. By building a network that is holistic, collaborative, adaptive, and grounded in science, LCCs are working to ensure the sustainability of our economy, land, water, wildlife, and cultural resources.

Are you a retiring farmer, looking for someone to take over? Land Link is a valuable program that connects beginning farmers with retiring landowners to faciliate farm transfers.

 

Multi-Generational Ownership and Planning for Family Owned Properties

The paper explains many of the common legal tools used by families to manage and/or transfer family lands, and gives a very good overview of the expectations and considerations families will face throughout the process.

 

Forever Donation
By:

A landowner recently asked us: What is the best way to ensure that the land I donate is not sold? We put the question to the land trust community and it generated quite a bit of activity on the land trust listserv.

 

Estate Planning for Forest Landowners - What Will Become of Your Timberland?
By:

The purpose of this book is to provide guidelines and assistance to nonindustrial private  forest owners and the legal, tax, financial, insurance, and forestry professionals who serve  them on the application of estate planning techniques to forest properties.

 

Farm Succession plan important piece of the puzzle

REITs and Timber Taxation
By:

A real estate investment trust (REIT) is a special tax entity investing in real estate (such as shopping malls, apartments, and timberland).

 

Like-Kind Exchanges of Conservation Easements
By:

Certain individuals who own land with significant conservation value, for example landowners of wildlife habitat or open space, can preserve the character of their land, obtain additional property, and defer taxes on the transaction, all at the same time.

 

What is a Like Kind Exchange?
By:

Internal Revenue Code section 1031 establishes the rules for like-kind exchanges. This is a tool that can be used by private landowners to defer real estate transfer taxes by exchanging one piece of property for another.

 

Year End Exchanges
By:

Like-kind exchanges that commence in one tax year and end in a subsequent tax year are sometimes called Year End Exchanges. Year End Exchanges contain some unique benefits and some hidden pitfalls.

A qualified intermediary (QI) is a neutral party who may assist a landowner in facilitating a like-kind exchange. The QI enters into a written agreement, known as the exchange agreement, with the landowner.
