Statement on Proposed Cog Railway Hotel by New Hampshire’s Conservation Community

A group of conservation organizations recently released a statement regarding the Mount Washington Cog Railway's proposed hotel. The organizations include The Nature Conservancy, New Hampshire Audubon, Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, Conservation Law Foundation, Appalachian Mountain Club, and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. The statement is directed towards the Coos County Planning and Zoning Boards.

The statement is available as a PDF on The Nature Conservancy's website. We've also embedded the statement here because it offers a very informative look into why Mount Washington should be protected and why the proposed hotel would be a harmful development.
