Despite years of haggling, the number of issues that will need to be resolved during the final round of hearings has actually grown.

Debate, negotiations over Big Tupper resort leaves parties polarized

After years of public review, town hall meetings, mediation sessions and negotiations, the Adirondack Club and Resort project is entering its final phase.

An adjudicatory hearing will begin soon, possibly as early as next month, overseen by administrative law judge Daniel O'Connell.

When that hearing is finished, the Adirondack Park Agency will have sixty days to vote on whether the 600-unit resort should be given a permit or not.

But as Brian Mann reports, the various factions taking part in the hearing are still as deeply divided over key issues as they were half a decade ago.  Go to full article

After years of review, a "rush to judgment" on Tupper resort?

The debate over the Adirondack Club and Resort proposed for Tupper Lake has been underway in various forms for nearly seven years.

Developer Michael Foxman wants to build roughly six hundred mansions, homes and condos, while also reopening the Big Tupper ski resort.

Now the process is winding to a close, with the Adirondack Park Agency expected to vote on a permit sometime later this winter.

Today and tomorrow, we will be looking at how the final steps in this process could play out.

As Brian Mann reports, some Park Agency commissioners worry that after years of debate and delay, their decision could be made in haste.  Go to full article

Big Tupper developers win round in court, Nature Conservancy cries foul

Developers of a new resort in Tupper Lake won a major victory yesterday when a local jury awarded them road access to a 1200-acre parcel of land.

The decision will allow the Adirondack Club and Resort to maintain a short road easement across neighboring property owned by the Adirondack Nature Conservancy.

The company says they needed access in order to move their project forward. The green group says the developers wanted to take their private property rights.

Green group blames Big Tupper delays on developer

The judge handling the hearing into the proposed Adirondack Club and Resort says talks will resume next month in Tupper Lake. In a letter sent Friday, Judge Daniel O'Connell made no decisions about developer Michael Foxman's request for mediation with pro-environment groups that oppose the project. O'Connell says the next hearing will be used to hash out whether mediation might be productive. The developer has specifically requested a chance to negotiate directly with the Adirondack Council. The Council has agreed to consider talks, but spokesman John Sheehan told Brian Mann that Michael Foxman's request appears to be a delaying tactic.  Go to full article
