The proposal submitted by Amtrak to the Department of State can be read here. A public comment period about the proposed project began on March 14 and continues until 4:30 p.m. on March 29. There is an effort to get the comment period extended, but for now assume that next Thursday is the deadline for making your opinion known about this proposal. Comments can be mailed to Matthew Maraglio, New York State Department of State, Office of Planning, Development & Community Infrastructure, 99 Washington Avenue, Suite 1010, Albany, NY 12231 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is also a petition opposing the proposed fencing: "Stop Amtrak's Fence Along the Hudson!" To sign that petition, click here.
