    What about the turtles that make nests and lay eggs along the railway bed during May-Aug. Will there be signs put up warning motorists as well some type of fencing for the turtles safety

    David.Gi asked over 2 years ago

    Signs will be posted for turtle safety.  Turtles Kingston has been active in protecting turtle nests from predation and trail users on more southern sections of the K&P and could be engaged further north.

    As a property owner of the KP Railway in Snow Road, I would like to ask a few few questions. 1. It says you would be contacting property owners, what is your tactic when contacting them. 2. I read a lot about health and physical activities in the draft plan, what about the Property Owners Mental Health and their Well being (not mentioned) 3. What is considered “fair market value” 4. What is the compensation for depreciation of property value from County. My property is on both sides of the track. This would greatly depreciate the value. 5. Who pays for property damages created by users 6. How am I supposed to access my property when my access point is the railway bed. ( Land locked) 7. My family is avid deer hunters, will railway bed be closed from Nov - Dec 8.
