RAY BROOK - The state Adirondack Park Agency will hold a public hearing in Tupper Lake on a land reclassification that would allow commercial use of the Trail's End marina.
The applicants have proposed reclassifying 2.5 acres at the end of Raquette River Drive, which would include their property and pieces of some surrounding ones, from the most restrictive "resource management" classification to "hamlet," which allows the most development per acre. The land across the street is hamlet.
The land has four cabins and 36 boat slips. Tupper Lake attorney Doug Wright and several other community members bought the land last year. Wright said at the time he would like to replace the existing docks with new ones and rent them out and sell them. They have since been at work replacing a worn-out retaining wall there. The Tupper Lake town board sent a resolution supporting the project to the APA.
Adirondack Park Agency board members Riele Morgiewicz, of the Department of State, and Peter Wohl, of Empire State Development, listen Thursday to a presentation on reclassifying a piece of Tupper Lake land.
