DEC Presents Land Classification Proposal

In 2011 the DEC acquired 1200 acres of land on Bellayre Mountain (which is commonly referred to as the Big Indian Acquisition). The agency has completed a proposal to classify those lands and they are presenting a summary of that proposal at a public meeting tonight, September 17, 2013,  7:00 - 9:00 pm at the Bellayre Mountain Ski Center Overlook Lodge in Highmount for examination and comment by the public. This plan determines potential recreational opportunities for the property and ensures protection of the natural resources (see link below for full announcement by the DEC). The meeting will be an opportunity for the community to meet with representatives of the DEC to share their thoughts and ideas about the proposed plan.  Comments can also be made in writing to the DEC Region 3 office and mailed to the address below.
