Post-Star editorial on ACR
January 5, 2012 - Jessica Collier
The Post-Star, a large regional newspaper based in Glens Falls, is weighing in on the ACR.
They haven't done much covering of the project throughout the eight years of APA review - mostly running Associated Press stories when the really big stuff happens, as far as I know.
They say the review process has been too slow, and they want the APA to find ways to make it faster.
The ending gives you a pretty good idea of the crux of their argument.
"Many observers expect the commissioners to approve the project with conditions. But rejecting it outright is not the worst thing they could do - following the advice of those environmental groups that want the hearings reopened is.
Eight years is enough. It's time for a yes or no."
What do you think? Should the APA make its review process faster? Should they have a way to stop developers from stalling? Do you like Fred Monroe's idea of having developers present their plans directly to the APA board?
I should note that Will Doolittle, who is an editor at the Post-Star, used to work for the Enterprise and the Lake Placid News.
