 Comment End -- Draft Recreation Management Plan Edinburgh & Corinth Tracts
https://www.dec.ny.gov/press/125344.html

DEC Seeks Public Comment on Draft Recreation Management Plan for Edinburgh and Corinth Tracts, Saratoga County

Draft Plan Continues Recreational Access in Conservation Easement
 

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is seeking public comment on a draft management plan that will continue public recreational access and protect natural resources within the Edinburgh and Corinth Conservation Easement Tracts in Saratoga County. The public comment period is open until June 10, 2022.

The draft Recreation Management Plan (RMP) applies to the combined 13,730 acres of the Edinburgh and Corinth Conservation Easement Tracts, owned by Lyme Adirondack Timberlands II and Lyme Timber Company. The recreation rights in the draft RMP include snowmobile trails and non-motorized access to the Spruce Mountain Fire Tower.

The following management actions are proposed in the draft RMP:
•Snowmobile Trails: 22 miles of snowmobile trails exist on the easement tracts as allowed in the 2009 Interim RMP. The draft RMP allows for the continued maintenance of the popular snowmobile trail system as a network connecting a large area between Great Sacandaga Lake and the towns of Greenfield and Corinth. The trail providing access to the Spruce Mountain Fire Tower, ending at the State land boundary 0.1 miles away from the fire tower, will remain open to the public.
•Spruce Mountain Fire Tower Access: The Spruce Mountain Fire Tower is located on a 2.5-acre parcel of Wilcox Lake Wild Forest and can be accessed via a trail on the Corinth tract. The draft RMP proposes the foot trail remain closed during big game hunting season, as was previously negotiated in a Cooperative Agreement with the landowner.

For more information, the draft plan can be viewed on the DEC website. DEC is accepting public comments through June 10, 2022, and comments can be submitted via email to R5.UMP@dec.ny.gov or mailed to Allison Buckley, Natural Resource Planner, NYS DEC, PO Box 1316, Northville, NY 12134.

New York State Public Hearing on Draft Disadvantaged Communities Criteria -- Lower Hudson Valley (in-person)


Criteria to Guide Equitable Implementation of State’s Ambitious Climate Law
 
May and June In-Person and Virtual Hearings to Provide Public Opportunities to Share Input on Draft Criteria
 

Comments Accepted Until July 7, 2022
 
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), in partnership with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), will hold 11 public hearings across the state to receive public input on draft disadvantaged communities criteria and advance the finalization of criteria to help guide the implementation of the State's nation-leading Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act.
 
New York’s Climate Justice Working Group (CJWG), which consists of representatives from environmental justice groups from across the State and representatives of several State agencies, voted in December to release the draft criteria for identifying disadvantaged communities for public review. The Draft Disadvantaged Communities Criteria Public Comment Period commenced in March with a 120-day public comment period that ends July 7, 2022.
 
The criteria are based on geographic, public health, environmental hazard, and socioeconomic factors, and once approved, will be used to help meet the directives of the Climate Act related to reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, as well as to inform regulatory impact statements and the State's clean energy and energy efficiency investments.

New York State's nation-leading climate agenda is the most aggressive climate and clean energy initiative in the nation, calling for an orderly and just transition to clean energy that creates jobs and continues fostering a green economy as New York State recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. Enshrined into law through the Climate Act, New York is on a path to achieve its mandate of a zero-emission electricity sector by 2040, including 70 percent renewable energy generation by 2030, and to reach economy-wide carbon neutrality. It builds on New York's unprecedented investments to ramp-up clean energy including over $33 billion in 102 large-scale renewable and transmission projects across the state, $6.8 billion to reduce buildings emissions, $1.8 billion to scale up solar, more than $1 billion for clean transportation initiatives, and over $1.6 billion in NY Green Bank commitments. Combined, these investments are supporting nearly 158,000 jobs in New York's clean energy sector in 2020, a 2,100 percent growth in the distributed solar sector since 2011 and a commitment to develop 9,000 megawatts of offshore wind by 2035. Under the Climate Act, New York will build on this progress and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 85 percent from 1990 levels by 2050, while ensuring that at least 35 percent with a goal of 40 percent of the benefits of clean energy investments are directed to disadvantaged communities, and advance progress towards the state's 2025 energy efficiency target of reducing on-site energy consumption by 185 trillion BTUs of end-use energy savings.
