Project Location: Adirondack Park

Project Description: The action involves adoption of a conceptual plan to maintain an integrated snowmobile trail system on public and private land in the Adirondack Park that will provide snowmobilers with an experience that is consistent with Article XlV, Section 1 of the New York State Constitution, while also striving to enhance the economic vitality of the Park’s citizens by providing linkages between local communities within the Park.

The proposed goals of this plan are:

1. Protect natural and cultural resources, and the wild forest character of public lands in the Park ( as envisioned by the Constitution, Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan, and appropriate laws and rules and regulations ).

2. Provide a safe, enjoyable snowmobile experience.

3. Promote tourism and economic opportunities for local communities.

The proposed actions in this plan may result in significant impact to the environment. A draft plan/generic environmental impact statement has been prepared. Copies of this document are available from the contact above. Comments are requested and will be accepted until March 31, 2004.
