Subject: Stewards of Stewart Request for Input

This is a request for your input for the new Unit Management Plan (UMP) for Stewart State Forest. The process for developing UMP’s is explained at the following DEC website: http://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/4979.html And a more specific model can be found in the DEC “Shawangunk Ridge Draft UMP” found at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/93937.html DEC is currently in the 2nd stage of the UMP development process of: “Solicit written and verbal input from the public through press releases and meetings”. Please send your written requests via email to Matthew Paul: matthew.paul@dec.ny.gov or mail to: Matthew Paul, Senior Forester, Region 3 DEC, 21 South Putt Corners, New Paltz, NY 12561. At the Stewart user groups meeting of November 2015 DEC requested users to send in written comments. At present DEC received one comment related to horses. DEC anticipates a public meeting will be held in May 2016 at the DEC office in New Paltz. When we learn of the date we will let you know. DEC stated that most of the public input for UMP’s comes through email and not from the public meetings. So please, if you have any suggestions about what you would like to see in the UMP for Stewart you can send them directly to Matt Paul. This is your opportunity to see that your voice is heard for how you want to see Stewart State Forest managed for the next ten years. Please get involved, thank you.
