ATTENTION Rhinebeck – Rhinecliff – Tivoli Letter to the editor: Impasse Fences along the Hudson River from Rhinecliff to Stuyvesant

Brendon Chorney wrote: Attention Fishermen and Women:
On January 18,2018 a Federal Consistency Form was sent to Albany requesting to install Impasse Fences along the Hudson River from Rhinecliff to Stuyvesant. CSX owns the land, but it is maintained by Amtrak. The Impasse fences (8200) linear feet would reduce all existing public access along coastal water and severely hinder our offshore fishing!

We must speak out against this proposal and ban together as one voice before it’s too late!

This is not a debate !

Just informing everybody what the railroad is trying to do.. We can not allow this to happen. We have beautiful scenery and fishing at our disposal with the Hudson River. We can not allow them to limit access to our very public waters.

 

Please contact your local County executives, small town and village governing boards, and also federal representatives and make your voice heard. Thank you!“
