Adirondack Wild: Friends of the Forest Preserve
(groans and grumbles from the audience)
We believe there's still an opportunity to redesign the project without landscape fragmentation and without violating resource management guidelines.
Project has everything to do with real estate subdivision
Applicant states that 90 percent of the great camp lots will be preserved as open space. Evidence suggests otherwise - less biologically diverse wildlife generally survives in that environment. Impacts may stretch out much farther than the application states.
The basis purpose of resource management is to protect the delicate resources, preserve open spaces that are essential and basic to this area.
Suggestions: shorter driveways, shorter power lines, use the Rod and Gun Club on Lake Simond to develop into greater sporting area.
"With a new design, Tupper Lake has potential to be a gateway center to magnificent lands to the east as it is to the west."
