The Plan designates management units and directs the Department to develop individual unit management plans that guide management activities and public use of those units.

The action involves the acquisition of approximately 2.34 acres of land owned by CSX, and a related subdivision approval and area variances. The property will consist of two sections on either side of the CSX railroad tracks for public purposes. The eastern section of land lies to the east of the railroad tracks, near the terminus of the Dutchess County Route 78 right-of-way, and the western section of land lies between the CSX tracks and the Hudson River. The property includes 0.211 acres of lands underwater or formerly underwater, which will require cooperation with the New York State Office of General Services to obtain a grant for the property.
