Study will gauge interest in moving to Adirondacks

LAKE PLACID — The Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism, in collaboration with Warren County Economic Development, is seeking input from people who live outside of this area to determine whether there’s an opportunity to entice more people to live in the Adirondacks year-round.

The goal of the new survey is “to study if remote working has the potential to increase the possibility of singles and families to move,” a news release from ROOST says.

It will be conducted by Camoin 310, a Saratoga Springs-based consulting firm that conducts many Adirondack studies, including the town of North Elba’s housing needs assessment and short-term vacation rental impact study in late 2019 and early 2020.

The survey questions are related to potential housing demands — which covers rental and ownership, and where the price range demand is — and what amenities are necessary to attract new residents, such as childcare and broadband.

Surveys are being sent out to contact lists from different organizations throughout the Adirondacks and on social media platforms, according to ROOST. The survey can also be found at https://camoin.surveysparrow.com/s/Guest-Satisfaction-Survey-/tt-c77c09.
