UMP, fire tower hearings postponed

The state Department of Environmental Conservation has canceled a pair of public hearing scheduled for tonight due to inclement weather.

The hearings regarding the Unit Management Plans for the Hurricane Mountain and the St. Regis Canoe Area – Jay Mountain Wilderness Area were slated to be held this evening at the Keene Central School and the Freer Science Building at Paul Smith’s College respectively.

Included within the amended UMPs are provisions that would require the removal of the fire towers on St. Regis and Hurricane mountains.

DEC has yet to reschedule the hearings.
