APA Approves Tupper Lake Club and Resort Project

The Adirondack Club and Resort project in Tupper Lake has been green-lighted by the Adirondack Park Agency in a 10 to 1 vote. APA Commissioner Richard Booth was the lone vote no.

In addition to being livestreamed via the APA’s website, Jessica Collier at the Adirondack Daily Enterprise and North Country Public Radio‘s Brian Mann have both been tweeting each speaker’s comments as the vote took place. A proposal to conduct a wildlife study of the development area was defeated in an earlier vote this week.

The Almanack has been covering the development project since 2005. Almanack contributor and Adirondack Explorer editor Phil Brown wrote about what the project could mean to future fragmentation of lands designated Resource Management this week.

    Too bad. Wrong project for a town that desperately needs and wants a sustainable shot in the arm. Poor precedent for resource management lands. A decision that will harm the buffer lands of the area and, therefore, degrade the wilderness…thus compromising the integrity of the region.

    John is this accurate? I thought that the request was to re-open the hearing to discuss a study (among other things).
