LOWVILLE, N.Y. (AP) - The state Department of Environmental Conservation is seeking public comment on a proposed plan for state-owned land near the western edge of the Adirondacks in Lewis County.

A public meeting is scheduled for Oct. 14 in Lowville to discuss the plan for the area known as the Westward Waters Unit Management Area.

The area includes 17 state forests and is home to the Otter Creek Horse Trail Complex and the Lake Bonaparte and Eatonville campsites. It has several fishing access sites and is used by hunters, hikers, mountain bikers and birdwatchers.

The management plan includes extended access roads, timber harvesting, campsite upgrades and improved horse trails.

The draft plan is available on DEC’s website (https://on.ny.gov/1JsmL2x ).
