NY agency to revise plans for new Adirondack lands

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The Department of Environmental Conservation says it's revising its proposed recreation plans for new state land in the Newcomb area of the central Adirondacks in response to public comments.

The agency released the management plan for the Essex Chain Lakes complex in Hamilton and Essex counties, about 90 miles northwest of Albany, in June. A plan for a snowmobile trail through the lands to connect Indian Lake, Newcomb and Minerva was to be considered separately.

Many of those who submitted public comments said the snowmobile trail should be addressed in the Essex Chain plan. DEC Commissioner Joe Martens said in a news release Friday that the snowmobile trail and other issues would be addressed in a revised plan to be released this fall.
