ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- A state appeals court has ruled against a challenge to the Adirondack Park Agency's approval of a proposed 6,200-acre, year-round resort and residential development in Tupper Lake.
The Appellate Division of state Supreme Court on Thursday ruled against Protect the Adirondacks, which opposed the agency's permit for the Adirondack Club and Resort project. The appeals court said the environmental group's claims were speculative.
Preserve Associates proposed more than eight years ago 206 single-family and 125 multiple-family dwellings with 453 units. They also proposed an inn with 20 rooms, 20 two-bedroom suites and 15 new single-family Great Camps on 20- to 30-acre lots.
How extensively they build would depend on how much they sell.
There was no initial comment from Protect the Adirondacks.
