AMC, Conservation Colleague Express ‘Deep Concerns’ about Proposed Hotel in Mt. Washington’s Alpine Zone

February 22, 2017

The Appalachian Mountain Club joined five other New Hampshire-based conservation organizations recently in submitting a letter to the Coos County Planning Board and Zoning Board of Adjustment expressing “deep concerns” regarding a proposal by the Mount Washington Cog Railway to construct a hotel in the alpine zone on Mount Washington.

The letter, signed by representatives of AMC, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, Conservation Law Foundation, New Hampshire Audubon, Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, and The Nature Conservancy in New Hampshire, said the groups were writing to “express strong concerns about, and opposition to, the adverse impacts such a project would have on one of New Hampshire’s most iconic natural and cultural resources.”
