ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York state is seeking comment on its open space plan.

The 2014 State Open Space Conservation Plan is a draft blueprint for how New York can protect its air, water and land, promote outdoor recreation, manage its park system and prepare for climate change.

State environmental and parks officials are seeking public comment through Dec. 17, either in writing or at public hearings. The hearings will be held around the state in late October.

State officials say they are open to suggestions on topics that include promoting tourism, improving public lands and creating more accessible public lands near cities.

The open space plan will be finalized and submitted to the governor next year.
