TO THE NYS DEPT. OF STATE AND ALL OTHER RELEVANT AGENCIES: I SUPPORT the creation of a Hudson Waterfront Zone which provides maximum public access to the river, recreational opportunities, habitat restoration and appropriate commercial development consistent with the Secretary of State\'s April 2005 ruling. I OPPOSE further degradation of Hudson South Bay. Blighting heavy industrial uses (such as a conveyor belt, overpasses, roads through wetlands, cement and gravel loading, and truck or barge traffic) cannot realistically coexist at this uniquely sensitive site with more economically- and environmentally-beneficial activities. ALL LEGAL MEANS should be explored by public officials to remove and prevent such incompatible uses from impeding the restoration of this magnificent public resource.
