Public input welcomed until April

The 2005 update was making changes to the original 1984 plan which was issued before conveyance of many state lands and also before the formation of boroughs. DNR was able to have the case dismissed by agreeing to address some of the errors found in the plan and considering other issues raised buy the plantiffs.
