Busy agenda for Adirondack Park Agency monthly meeting

RAY BROOK — The Adirondack Park Agency will hold its monthly meeting at its headquarters in Ray Brook on Thursday to talk about telecommunication towers, timber cutting and to welcome a new diversity director.

The Regulatory Programs Committee will consider approving a proposed 90-foot-tall self-supporting monopole telecommunication tower concealed with a simulated tree in Elizabethtown at 10 a.m.

The committee will consider a timber harvest plan submitted by the Lyme Timber Company for lands in Arietta and Lake Pleasant, Hamilton County.

The Park Planning and Policy Committee will welcome Nicole Hylton-Patterson, director of the newly established Adirondack Diversity Initiative. She will provide an overview of ADI focusing on their first six-month strategies and goals.

The Local Government Services Committee will review and consider authorizing proposed amendments to the Town of Indian Lake’s Local Land Use Program at 11:45 a.m. The proposed Town Ordinance builds upon the foundation of the Indian Lake’s existing code and stems from a 2017 plan to look at areas in the code in need of improvement or clarification.
