Title: Development Review Coordinator
Phone: 207-874-8901

Max is the Department's Development Review Coordinator (DRC). He has long dedicated time and energy toward the protection of Maine's natural resources, beginning with his service through the Maine Conservation Corps as a young adult. He earned his Masters in Environmental Science at The University of Massachusetts in Boston and a Bachelors of Science from Juniata College in Pennsylvania where he studied "Human Ecology." Following several years of experience working in the environmental consulting sector, he is grateful to have found a position where environmental and social cohesion are a top priority.

Should your project in Portland require a site plan review, Max will become a component of the process, and one should feel comfortable reaching out with any questions, concerns, or comments. Max is responsible for the review of cost estimates, performance guarantees, site plan review and monitoring. Max spends about 50% of his time in the field where he is also an inspector ensuring a site’s compliance from multiple perspectives, including sediment and erosion control, life safety, and any unique conditions associated with the project.
