The above question is most sure to be addressed at the Schroon Lake Central School tonight, when three Adirondack news outlets host a public forum about the future of the Boreas Ponds tract

The Adirondack Daily Enterprise, the Adirondack Explorer magazine and the Sun Community newspaper have organized the discussion, which begins at 6 pm.

The Adirondack Park Agency is currently reviewing plans for how to classify the 20 thousand acre parcel. A growing number of environmental groups are pushing for a big expansion of the Adirondack Park's wilderness area. There are also vocal groups who want to make it available to all, including winter and summer sports lovers, and those with disabilities who need access to the area’s vast and long established logging roads.

Potentially hundreds of interested area residents will join environmental groups and local officials.
