Here is a first report on the comments received in the Finch / New State Lands classification hearings, following acquisition and analysis of some 5,000 pages of written comments obtained through a FOIA request.

The decision over how to manage the new state lands has been called one of the most important decisions since the founding of the Adirondack Park Agency in the early 1970s. There is a lot of good fodder.

BTW, Adirondack Almanack has had the most extensive coverage of these new state lands, with over 50 stories on all aspects of the purchase and options for management. You can find all of the coverage here:
