[The APA is] looking to put the permit through — not giving it a rubber stamp but they are definitely open to the idea of it.

Big Tupper resort appears on track for APA approval, with conditions

Listen to this story
The Adirondack Park Agency's staff has released a draft version of what the state is calling "potential permit conditions" that would shape the big new resort proposed for Tupper Lake.

APA officials say those conditions for the Adirondack Club and Resort could change following a final round of hearings that are set to get underway later this month.

The project also needs a final vote of approval from the APA board.

But it appears that the Park Agency's staff is preparing to recommend that the project be allowed to move forward with some relatively minor changes and restrictions.

Jessica Collier broke the story about these APA documents in yesterday's Adirondack Daily Enterprise. She spoke about her story with Brian Mann.

Adirondack Park Agency spokesman Keith McKeever issued the following statement to NCPR about the draft permit conditions:

"This is a draft of potential permit conditions, addressing some of the issues identified by the [Adirondack Park Agency] board.  This is the staff’s attempt to summarize the project as we understand it now, prior to the hearing, because the project has been evolving since 2005.  This is subject to change. The record from the hearing will be the document that the agency board will have to decide upon.”
