Proposal 3 | Forest Preserve Land Bank Amendment

Season 2017 Episode 39 | 26m 46s | Video has closed captioning.

Proposal 3, the Forest Preserve Land Bank Amendment, would allow communities in the Adirondacks and Catskills to request state land for qualifying projects in exchange for the state adding 250 acres to the preserve. The measure would also allow for bike paths, sewer, electric, telephone, and broadband lines within the width of the road. Stakeholders worry that it will be overshadowed by Prop 1.
