Second meeting to be held on land use rule

WATERBURY — Vermont residents have another opportunity to weigh in on a proposed rule to regulate public activities on land owned by the state Fish & Wildlife Department.
The proposal would allow hunting and fishing on more than 133,000 acres. It prohibits snowmobiling, mountain biking and horseback riding except in designated corridors.
Officials say the proposal will give game wardens the authority to enforce the rule. The Fish and Wildlife Board has given preliminary approval to the proposal.
A hearing will be held Thursday at Kehoe Conservation Camp in Castleton at 6 p.m. A previous hearing was held Tuesday in Montpelier.
