NY agency postpones decision on Adirondack land
RAY BROOK, N.Y. (AP) - A decision on public access to new state land in the central Adirondacks has been pushed back another month.
Adirondack Park Agency spokesmen Keith McKeever tells the Adirondack Daily Enterprise the land classification won't be on the agency board's agenda when it meets this week.
At issue is classification of 21,000 acres in the towns of Indian Lake, Minerva and Newcomb that the state acquired from The Nature Conservancy. The conservancy bought the land from the Finch, Pruyn timber company in 2007.
The land includes the Essex Chain of Lakes, OK Slip Falls and a tract along the Indian River.
Classification will determine whether motorboats, snowmobiles and other types of motorized access are permitted.
