APA LAND CLASSIFICATION
AATV SUPPORTS ALTERNATIVE 1 for BOREAS PONDS TRACT
AATV is steadfast in the position that Alternative 1 is the only classification that both protects the environment and allows reasonable access for all ages and abilities, including the physically fit and disabled. This mix of both Wild Forest and Wilderness classification outlined in Alternative 1 creates a balance of protection for sensitive lands and recreational use of existing infrastructure (logging roads). The Five Towns have significantly compromised to support this classification. Any other alternative proposed will extinguish both tourism and new economic opportunities for the area.

Adirondack Park Agency Commissioners recommend proposed land classifications to Governor Cuomo, according to the guidelines and criteria of the Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan (APSLMP). Governor Cuomo may then accept, modify, or reject the APA recommendation.
