Input Sought On Use Of Public Lands

Print More

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 & Wildlife Department.

The proposal would allow hunting and fishing on more than 133,000 acres but prohibits 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 tomorrow in Montpelier, at the Pavilion Building. The second hearing will take place Wednesday at Kehoe Conservation Camp, in Castleton. Both hearings start at 6:00.
