RAY BROOK - The state Adirondack Park Agency's May meeting Thursday will feature reports on the agency's flood response, telecommunication projects and the status of the Crown Point Bridge project.
Richard Weber, deputy director of regulatory programs, will update the APA Board of Commissioners on these things at 9:30 a.m. The new bridge between Addison, Vt. and Crown Point is supposed to open in October, but work was delayed by Lake Champlain's flooding.
The APA's Enforcement Committee will meet at 1:45 p.m. and hear a second reading of the revised civil penalty guidance, which is intended to assist APA staff in determining appropriate, fair civil penalties for violations. The committee will also discuss a new strategy to deal with violations related to older subdivisions of land.
Ongoing work on a new Crown Point Bridge is seen, from top, on July 31, 2010, Oct. 21, 2010, and April 30, 2011.

Chesterfield town Supervisor Gerald Morrow will do this month's "Community Spotlight," a regular feature of APA meetings in which supervisors talk about their towns, at 2:30 p.m.
At 3:15, the Legal Affairs Committee will hear a report on legal guidance for the upcoming building season. Agency staff will review informational flyers prepared for the general public that cover camping units in Department of Health-permitted private campgrounds, shoreline expansions and group camp principal buildings.
This month's APA's meeting is only one day; normally each meeting lasts a day-and-a-half.
