Seeking Balance
 Adirondack Park Regional Assessment
 May 2014
 A Five Year Update to the Adirondack Park Regional Assessment Project
 The data presented in this report was collected and interpreted by the same team of researchers that  was responsible for the original APRAP study.  This Assessment is reduced in size and scope to reflect only the significant changes in prior data sets or the alternative means by which information was collected and/or analyzed. The scope of this report simply includes Land Ownership, Demography and Public School Enrollments with a brief discussion of Fire and Emergency Services. Three members of the original  APRAP Steering Committee provided guidance for the study over the past year including:Brad DakeDeanne Rehm& Fred Monroe
 This map was included in the 1891 Annual Report of the Forest Commission and illustrates the known geography of the era. The border shown is the original Blue Line, before it expanded outward in all directions to encompass an area more than twice the size. Long Lake is in the middle of the map. Hinckley, Stillwater and Sacandaga reservoirs had yet to be built. Cranberry and Indian Lakes are seen before impoundments were added.

“To lessen further misunderstanding, we wouldsay that the Adirondack Park is open to all, the poor as well as the rich. All are welcome.  Anyone may pitch his tent anywhere on Stateland without let or hindrance, and occupy it  without rental or price.”
Francis G. Babcock, Samuel J. Tilden, Clarkson C. Schuyler.Nathan Straus, William R. WeedCommissioners of the NYS Forest Commission1893 Annual Report of the Forest Commission
“The Adirondack Park Land Use and Development Plan set forth in this article recognizes the complementary needs of all the people of the statefor the preservation of the park’s resources andopen space character and of the park’s permanent,seasonal and transient populations for growth and service areas, employment, and a strong economic base, as well. In support of the essential interdependence of these needs, theplan represents a sensibly balanced apportionment of land to each.”
“Statement of legislative findings and purposes” – §801 of the Adirondack Park Agency (APA) Act enacted in May 1973
“The historic legislation, in striking a sensiblebalance between the needs for preservation anddevelopment within our treasured Adirondack Park, will assure the use and development of the3.7 million acres of private land within the Park proceeds in a manner consistent with the best interest of all people of the State.”
Governor Nelsen A. Rockefeller On approving the Adirondack Park Land Use and Development Plan, May 1973
“Some don’t want the Park well-publicized,arguing that what is special is the isolation,that’s true. But it’s also true that the economy has to be sustained and you need tourism tosustain it. That’s the tension of the Park.Finding a balance is very important.”
Governor Andrew CuomoSeptember 2013
