DEC Tallies Adk Snowmobile Trails

For the first time yesterday, New York's Department of Environmental Conservation released an official mileage tally for snowmobile trails in the Adirondack Park.

Adks After Pataki, Pt. 2: Beef Up APA?

This week, we're talking with some of the politicians and activists who will shape the Adirondack Park Agency's future after Governor George Pataki leaves office in January.
Over the last year, state Senator Betty Little, a Republican from Queensbury, has called for the APA's power to be curtailed. A few local government leaders say the agency should be abolished. But with Democrat Eliot Spitzer leading the governor's race by a comfortable margin, some pro-environment groups see this as an opportunity to strengthen the APA regulations and enforcement power. Brian Mann spoke with the Adirondack Council's John Sheehan, who says the political vacuum created by Pataki's departure has triggered new tension. (Yesterday, Brian talked with state Senator Betty Little; tomorrow: Ross Whaley, chairman of the APA.)  Go to full article
