And last but not least, here's the the Adirondack North Country Association weighing in:
Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA) recognizes the potential of the Adirondack Club and Resort Project (ACR), which was just approved by the Adirondack Park Agency, to help revitalize the economy of Tupper Lake and its surrounding communities and help improve quality of life in this part of the Adirondack Park.
ANCA's mission includes building vibrant communities and resilient economies throughout the fourteen counties of Northern New York. As planned, ACR will bring needed support to the retail and service sectors and will expand recognition of our region's vast natural and built assets to a growing number of tourists and visitors.
"The community of Tupper Lake has embraced and supported this project and has shown great initiative in the grass roots effort to reopen the Big Tupper Ski Area, a significant attraction for the ACR project. Tupper Lake is a community that has worked hard to re-invigorate itself and ANCA applauds this effort. ANCA also sees the project as advancing the North Country Regional Economic Development Council's vision of elevating global recognition of the region as one of the special places on the planet to visit, live, work and study and activating tourism as a pathway to diversify our economies," said ANCA Executive Director Kate Fish.
ANCA believes that the Adirondack Park Agency, consistent with its statutory mandates,has been thorough and professional in its assessment of the potential impacts of the ACR project. ANCA is pleased with this positive outcome for the project and the community.
