Discussion time: APA headquarters

apa headquartersAs Gwen Craig reported for Adirondack Explorer this past week:

Unless a feasibility study shows the historic Paul Smith’s Power and Light Building may fall apart or some other insurmountable issue, the Adirondack Park Agency is full steam ahead to move its headquarters from Ray Brook to the village of Saranac Lake.

APA Executive Director Barbara Rice said the 1-3 Main St. building is the agency’s “preferred site.” She ruled out further site searches or renovating the existing office building.

Read the full story here and then weigh in below. What do you think of the plan to move APA headquarters? Should the agency stay in Ray Brook?

Feedback time!

I’m hoping to hear from readers such as yourself: How are we doing with the Almanack? What would you like to see more of/less of, as far as content goes? We strive to create a forum where anyone can submit content and commentary, and also want the information to be interesting and useful. Do you find the event notices to be helpful, to stay up on what’s happening in our communities? Do you mainly come here for the comment section and to discuss Adirondack issues?

If you receive our daily email newsletter, do you find a daily email too much to keep up with? Or do you enjoy getting a daily update from us?

Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts! You can also send me an email to melissa@adirondackexplorer.org
