Scenic Byways Project Forum in Indian Lake

The Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA) and consultant Adirondack Research are set to hold a second public meeting about a Scenic Byways signage project to gather perspectives on themes and topics for the signs.

Current signage on the Central Adirondack Trail Scenic Byway exists primarily within a 2.6-mile stretch between North River and North Creek. Project organizers are exploring ways to create an interpretive experience that crosses town lines to include all communities along the corridor.

The public forum will take place on Tuesday, March 26th at 6 pm at the Byron Park Meeting Room, Byron Park, Route 28, Indian Lake. All are welcome to attend.

The team presented about the signage project to the Johnsburg Town Board on February 6th and at a public forum at the Tannery Pond Community Center in North Creek on February 21st.

According to ANCA Regional Advocacy Coordinator Jacob Vennie-Vollrath, the approximately 20 people who participated in the North Creek forum provided valuable information and insight that has helped start to develop themes and content for the signs. The project is expected to be completed by the end of this summer.

The project is being funded by the Federal Highway Administration and administered by the New York State Department of Transportation.
