Jun 15, 2005 — This week we're focusing attention on the vacation home boom in the Adirondacks. At an affordable housing conference over the winter in Saranac Lake, regional leaders heard a presentation from Mick Ireland. Ireland is a local government leader in Aspen, Colorado. That resort community has fought back against the pressures of vacation home development, creating more than 2,000 units of protected middle-income housing. As Chris Knight reports, Ireland says the Adirondack Park should prepare itself for the same struggle.
