OLD FORGE, NY – The Adirondack Park Agency held a public hearing in Old Forge Tuesday at View Arts Center.
The purpose of the meeting was to get the publics input on what to do with a 34 mile stretch of rail between Tupper Lake and Lake Placid.
Originally the plan was to remove the rails and replace them with trails.
However a lawsuit prevented that.
On the table now are 6 different options that range from doing nothing, to a combination of rails and trails.
The APA will hold another public hearing on Wednesday in Albany.
Officials hope to have a decision by this summer.
