RAY BROOK - The Adirondack Park Agency Friday, Dec. 6 announced its recommendation for classification of the former Finch Pruyn land in the Central Adirondacks, including the Essex Chain Lakes. In part, the recommendation reads:

"... the Preferred Alternative recommends classification of a large portion of the Essex Chain Lakes Tract as Primitive, the northern portion along the Hudson River north of the Iron (Polaris) Bridge as Wild Forest and provides a buffer between the Wilderness and Primitive areas as Wild Forest."

The APA meets Dec. 11-13 to decide on its final recommendation for the governor.
