The Adirondack Park
Although the Adirondack Park Act has only been in place for just over 35 years, the debate on the protection of the Park has been going on much longer. Since the early 1970’s there have only beena few larger scaled projects that were proposed within the Blue Line. They include Horicon, Ton-Da-Lay, Loon Lake, Ausable Acres, Lake Placid Club, and now the Adirondack Club and Resort. With the review of each project has come an increase in public reaction to the Adirondack Park Act. Some of the projects mentioned never saw approval, but the interest that was created in the Park increased.
Each time a larger scaled development is proposed, there are groups and individuals who take a very public position on the project. Groups such as the Adirondack Council, the Association for the Protection of the Adirondacks, the Residents Committee for the Protection of the Adirondacks, and others, may use the opportunity to express their concerns and positions about the Park. When that happens, the real estate community sees an increase of inquiries from individuals who are interested in the area. In other words, in their effort to highlight their position, they provide a level of marketing that promotes real estate sales. Many of the folks we have sold property to, are members of one of these organizations.
