County:
Sullivan, Ulster, Delaware, Greene

Lead Agency: New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC)

Project Title: Revision of the Draft Catskill Park State Land Master Plan (CPSLMP)

Contact Person: Peter Frank

Address: NYS DEC
625 Broadway
Albany, NY 12233

Phone:
(518) 473-9518

E-Mail: lfcat@gw.dec.state.ny.us

Project Location: The draft Catskill Park State Land Master Plan (CPSLMP) applies to all state lands administered by DEC within the Catskill Park, as well as parcels of Forest Preserve land situated within the counties of Ulster, Greene, Delaware and Sullivan, but outside the Catskill Park boundaries.

Project Description: The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has released a revised draft of the CPSLMP for public review and comment. This draft revises the August 2003 draft in response to comments received during the public comment period. The plan sets forth management guidelines for all state lands administered by NYS DEC within the Catskill Park, as well as parcels of Forest Preserve land situated within the counties of Ulster, Greene, Delaware and Sullivan, but outside the Catskill Park boundaries. The scope of this revision includes the creation of a new land classification, Primitive Bicycle Corridor in Wilderness Areas and designates four Bicycle Corridors in the park. The plan was revised to allow for bicycle use in Wild Forests on roads open to the public, state truck trails, old wood roads, foot trails, snowmobile trails, and horse trails, unless such use is deemed unsuitable through the Unit Management Plan (UMP) process. In addition, the plan allows for an increase in the size of the Colgate Lake Wild Forest from 600 acres to 1,495 acres to accommodate appropriate recreational uses. The revision also allows for management of invasive species.

NYS DEC will be accepting comments on the draft plan until May 19, 2008.
