NY agency to decide on new Adirondack land access

NY agency to decide on new Adirondack land access

The Adirondack Park Agency has expanded its monthly meeting to three days rather than the usual two

RAY BROOK — The Adirondack Park Agency has expanded its monthly meeting to three days rather than the usual two this month, to make time for discussion of land-use plans for new Forest Preserve tracts in the central Adirondacks.

The meeting Wednesday through Friday in Ray Brook will include discussion of the alternatives for classifying the Essex Chain, Indian River, and OK Slip Falls tracts. The commission is scheduled to vote on the classification on Friday.

The land includes 22,136 acres of former timber company land purchased by the state as well as existing tracts in the Hudson Gorge and Blue Mountain Wild Forest.

The plan recommended by agency staff strikes a compromise between wilderness protection interests and motorized recreation advocates -- particularly snowmobilers.
