Michael Foxman Talks About Big Tupper Development

Philadelphia developer Michael Foxman hopes to reinvent the Big Tupper ski area in Tupper Lake. His massive subdivision would affect more than six thousand acres, adding roughly 800 condos and high-end vacation homes. Local government leaders have hailed the plan as a fresh start for the village. But Foxman has faced tough questions recently, following the revelation that he was indicted in the 1990s as part of a Federal savings and loan fraud case. Foxman declined to discuss the S&L case in detail on tape, describing it as "ancient history". He did agree to talk with Brian Mann about his background and his plans for Tupper Lake. Foxman refused to name the investors who are backing the project, but he added new details about the plan which is now being reviewed by the Adirondack Park Agency.  Go to full article
