Public Feedback Sought for Scenic Byway Signs

November, 2020

The Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA) and Adirondack Research, LLC are seeking public input on a series of interpretive signs that will be placed along the Central Adirondack Trail Scenic Byway — a scenic corridor that follows Route 28 through the Hudson River watershed.

In two public sessions held in North Creek and Indian Lake last year, over 40 community members provided input that informed the themes and content of the six interpretive signs. Drafts of the first three signs, with textual content and illustrations, will be on display at the Tannery Pond Community Center in North Creek and Byron Park building in Indian Lake until December 15, 2020. They can also be viewed online at ​​(digital samples of the signs and a questionnaire for submitting reviews are available online).

“Public input has played a major role in the development of these designs,” said Adirondack Research Director Ezra Schwartzberg. “We are eager to share the drafts with local communities and hear what they have to say. We want residents and businesses to be proud of this project and to benefit from it for years to come.”

Topics for the signs include: “The Forest Preserve and Fire Towers,” “What to Do on the Byway,” “Transportation in and around the Route 28 Corridor,” “North River Past and Present,” “Forest and Forest Industry” and “Recreation and Wildlife.”
