Forest Preserve Temporary Revocable Permit Log
The Department of Environmental Conservation manages nearly 3 million acres of Forest Preserve Land in New York State. Temporary Revocable Permits, typically referred to as TRPs, are issued by the Department to grant permission for the temporary use of these lands to individuals or organizations to carry out projects and activities which are appropriate to such land.
The TRP log below details approved activities currently taking place on Adirondack and Catskill Forest Preserve lands. Public comments regarding the approved activities are welcome and may be emailed to Preserve Log or mailed to Forest Preserve Stewardship Coordinator, Lands & Forests, NYS DEC, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-4254. Please reference the TRP number in your correspondence.
Note: Once a public comment is received by the Department, it is a public record and is subject to disclosure.
The Department has completed a draft Temporary Revocable Permit (TRP) for NYCO Minerals Inc.(NYCO) to conduct exploratory drilling for minerals on Lot 8 in the Jay Mountain Wilderness Area, Town of Lewis, Essex County. This TRP is authorized by a Constitutional Amendment to Article 14 approved by the voters on November 5, 2013 to allow NYCO to engage in mineral sampling on Lot 8. The TRP sets terms and conditions for mineral exploration activities and site mitigation and restoration. The TRP authorizes the cutting of up to 1,254 trees.
This 30 day public comment period is running in conjunction with the Jay Mountain Wilderness UMP Amendment.
Comments on the draft TRP may be submitted to Kris Alberga, NYS DEC - Region 5 Office, P.O. Box 296, Ray Brook, NY 12977, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Written comments on the draft TRP will be accepted until May 2, 2014
