News Brief - December 2005:

Empire State Greenway Rejected by Essex County
Meeting in Elizabethtown in December, the Essex County Board of Supervisors decided against participating in the vast Empire State Greenway stretching from the Niagara River at the western edge of New York State to Lake Champlain on the eastern border. Supervisor Daniel Connell of Westport, which is on Lake Champlain, said, "I think the last thing any of us want is more regulations put on us because we are a lakefront community. Once they get their foot in the door, is this going to be another set of regulations?" The Empire State Greenway plan "seeks to incorporate a regional approach to land-use planning, tourism, recreational trail development, and other collaborative initiatives."
