Economic development strategy session slated

Monday, May 26, 2014 - Updated: 10:25 PM

OLD FORGE -- An information session will be held here to obtain public input on the Adirondack Park Economic Development Strategy.

Central Adirondack Partnership for the 21st Century Inc. (CAP-21) has been participating in an economic development workgroup sponsored by the Common Ground Alliance and The Adirondack Partnership. It will host a session Thursday, May 29, at the Old Forge Library Community Room from 6-8 p.m.

The workgroup's goal is to develop an economic development strategy to assist in economic revitalization efforts throughout the Adirondack Park. This Adirondack Economic Development Strategy has been analyzing a tremendous amount of data, research and information.

This analysis has included availability of lodging accommodations and considerations; a review of "cluster" job sectors, like health and wellness and forest products, which might lend themselves to further development; a review of job retention and expansion strategies; and the development of a "Trail Town" approach toward connecting towns and trails throughout the park.

The workgroup wants feedback on these strategies.

Pre-registration is not required but appreciated. Call (315) 369-3353 or go on-line at to confirm attendance.

The NYS Department of State and NYS Department of Environmental Conservation's Community Smart Growth program are sponsoring the Adirondack Park Economic Development Strategy.
