Review board takes a stand on call to abolish APA

• We have been reviewing the Tug Hill Commission's structure and mission as one example of what we'd like to see happen at the Adirondack Park Agency - where the executive law that creates it says it is geared toward the "conservation and productive use of the natural resources of the region, strengthening the long-term economy, employment, cultural and social resources, and the general well-being of the rural communities."

• We're working with local officials and Review Board members - as well as our residents and businesses - for input on other questions or concerns they may have. In short, without reining in the Adirondack Park Agency, and creating economic opportunities, quality employment and affordable housing (among other needs) in the Adirondack Park, the economic life of the region will continue to deteriorate.
