    I’m against the proposal for making the Hinckley Reservoir Day Use Area s campground.
    I live just off Route 365 which is the main transportation road to this area. The amount of trash thrown along the road from visitors to this area is embarrassing. It took me 6 months of letter writing to get the state to put up a no littering sign. There are also a number of people operating ATV’s along this state highway.-it’s against the law! I’ve contacted our state senator, police and the town but no one seems to care.
    I can’t imagine what additional violations will occur with increased traffic to this area, I’m sure the state will be as cavalier toward new infractions as they have with current ones.
    As a resident, who pays high taxes, I don’t want it

    Good luck trying to clean up litter I live in Lake George Village. There are trash cans everywhere and the people just litter the streets. It just shows us what kind of people out there that just do t care. SAD.
