Hearings set on use of state land
WATERBURY — Vermont residents will get a chance to weigh in on a new proposed rule to regulate public activities on land owned by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department.
The proposal would allow hunting and fishing on more than 133,000 acres but prohibit snowmobiling, mountain biking and horseback riding except in designated corridors.
Officials say the proposal will give game wardens the authority to enforce the rule.
The Fish and Wildlife Board has given preliminary approval to the proposal in the first of three votes.
A public hearing will be held today in Montpelier at the Pavilion Building. The second hearing will take place Wednesday at Kehoe Conservation Camp in Castleton. Both hearings start at 6 p.m.MORE IN This Just InThe Associated Press Full Story
