ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- A committee formed to advise New York on how to deal with more visitors to the Adirondack High Peaks is seeking public input.

The High Peaks Strategic Planning Advisory Group was created in November to help the state Department of Environmental Conservation with management issues.

Concerns have been raised recently about more hikers on High Peaks trails and more cars lining the mains roads through the region.

The 13-member group includes representatives from state and local government, businesses and advocacy groups. They are supposed to make recommendations to the state by June.

Members of the public can email comments and recommendations to the group at Info.R5@dec.ny.gov.
