Special Report: APA Staff Divided On Big Tupper Great Camps

Listen to this story
The Adirondack Park Agency is reviewing a proposed resort development in Tupper Lake that would mean construction of more than 800 vacation homes and condos. A cornerstone of the project are the 25 "great camp" sized lots that would spread over roughly two thousand acres. Environmentalists and some locals say the great camp subdivision could damage the forest and disrupt wildlife habitat. An APA report issued last month played down those concerns. But an investigation by North Country Public Radio has found that members of the Park Agency's own review team were deeply troubled by the project. As Brian Mann reports, their recommendations were over-ruled by the APA's executive team and their environmental concerns were never made public.
