The Tupper Lake Adirondack Club Lawsuit

A July 3, 2014 decision by the Appellate Division Third Department of the New York State Supreme Court confirmed a 2012 decision by the Adirondack Park Agency to approve a plan by developers to build 600 "second homes" in the Adirondack Park at Tupper Lake. Speakers Peter Bauer (Protect the Adirondacks!), Roger Downs (Sierra Club, Atlantic Chapter), and Willie Janeway (Adirondack Council) will discuss this change and the case.

Sponsored by the Friends of the New York State Library.
