    I wish they would look into not building an oversized blacktop parking area. Get the trail operating and see if parking for 300 cars is needed. Forever green is not building unnecessary parking lots

    We won’t get young people without affordable housing. And you won’t get affordable housing without getting rid of the STR market – housing was not a problem before this took off. It’s made a joke of the zoning of communities. I live in a “Rural” zone with a house next door holding 8 people week after week from May-October – no reprieve.

    One of the biggest concerns to the residents of the Park is the early closing of DEC campgrounds this year. Residents of the Park depend on the fall season to finish up the tourist season. DEC plans on closing 11 of the 14 campgrounds in Hamilton County on Labor Day instead of Columbus Day which is the traditional closing date. That shortens the camping season by almost 5 weeks. People love to come and camp in our beautiful Adirondacks in the Fall, it is the best time of year. Shortening the camping season by almost 5 weeks will have a serious effect on the local economy and tourists will be spending their money elsewhere.
