    A ‘multi-use’ corridor needs to include ALL modes of transportation (both rail and trail). The ASRR does NOT use the corridor for 6 months of the year. It seems that the opposition are NIMBYs (not in my backyard). They are concerned only for their own interests, not the interests of the public. The Adirondacks are for ALL to enjoy, and in an environmentally way. How do the Trail Only people justify their position?

    Interestingly “Travel Corridor” does not appear in the State Constitution. It was made up by the State to suit its purpose. All kinds of little violations to the Forever Wild Article exist and are done by the State and they have their own “logical” explanation for each. . .

    The judges decision on the corridor was a good one. The railroad can now proceed to Lake Placid and when completed we the great state of New York can bring back the Winter Olympics to Lake Placid with a better rail line than in 1980. When I volunteered on the line, I was asked by many riders, even from out of state when we were going to finish the line. This will be great for all people to visit and enjoy our beautiful Adirodac region.

    I want to go on record as being in favor of rail removal on the Remsen-Lake Placid trail corridor. The are between Saranac and Lake Placid is the only section of rail currently viable for train travel between Big Moose and Saranac. Injunctions and suits that stall the removal of rails from Big Moose and to at least Saranac are a disservice to a wide range of tourists and NY Sate residents. The corridor could be used both as a much safer, more widely traveled corridor trail during snowmobile season as well as for hiking and biking during warmer months. In addition economic impact to retailers, hotels, restaurants, convenience and gasoline stations would be significant.

    Please keep this intact! Especially in light of covid 19. .the public needs more opportunities to embellish the natural beauty of this great state. Once gone it’s gone!
