The Maine Land Valuation for Certain Lands at Current Value Referendum, also known as Proposed Constitutional Amendment No. 2, was on the November 3, 1970 ballot in Maine as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved.[1] The measure allowed the Legislature to provide for the assessment of real estate taxes of three types of real estate in accordance with a valuation based on the lands current use. This amended Section 8 of Article IX of the Maine Constitution.[2]

The three land types were as follows:[2]

  • Farms and agricultural lands, timberland and woodlands
  • Open space lands which are used for recreation or the enjoyment of scenic or natural beauty
  • Land used for game management or wildlife sanctuaries
