Fewer agencies, not more

I just read the letter from Robin DeLoria, Newcomb town supervisor, regarding rail-car storage in the Adirondack Park (March/April issue). While I’m sure the recommendation of involving all parties is theoretically the proper way to proceed, unfortunately this course of action will result in inaction. Getting two governmental agencies to agree on a course of action is difficult; getting six or more agencies involved means there will be months or years of debate, and nothing will ultimately happen. Someone needs to make a stand to protect the Park from being a dumping ground and get it done.
