Dec 17, 2014 12:02 am
The Daily Freeman is reporting the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation will host a public information meeting and open house to solicit public input and recommendations to amend the Kaaterskill Wild Forest Unit Management Plan. The meeting will be held this evening (Wed., Dec. 17) at the Hunter Town Hall. As an initial step to address safety concerns at Kaaterskill Falls, the DEC installed approximately 200 feet of split-rail fencing at the top of the falls and another 150 feet of fencing at the base of the falls to discourage the public from entering hazardous areas. The DEC also installed additional signage warning the public about the danger of leaving the marked and maintained areas. Comments will be accepted through Jan. 16.
