Subject: [NYHIST-L] Adirondack Lands

> Colleagues,
> Has anyone seen a printed notice in the last few days concerning the 
> consummation of a complicated land deal involving about 260,000 acres 
> of International Paper Co. Lands in the Adirondacks?  The state and 
> IP reached an agreement about purchase of fee title and/or easements 
> a couple of years ago, but it was held up when some of the towns 
> exercised their veto rights as provided for in the law creating the 
> Environmental Protection Fund in 1993.  In the meantime, IP sold the 
> land (encumbered with the easements) to Lyme Timber Co. of Hanover, 
> New Hampshire.  I have been told orally that the deal was to be 
> finally completed last Wednesday, but I can't find any published 
> reports.  If you have seen anything, would you please supply name and 
> date of paper?
> thanks,
