Adirondack Park Agency

Regulatory Programs Division

In addition to its permitting and advisory review functions, the Regulatory Programs Division shares responsibility with other Agency units in ensuring compliance with the laws the Agency administers and the permits it issues; assisting the public, local governments and other agencies in their associations with the Agency, and providing necessary field investigations and reports to support the work of the Agency’s RASS and Enforcement units. The division’s 12 staff members provide project guidance and assessment, preliminary consultations for complex or otherwise significant projects, and apply review standards for submitted applications. Upon receiving a project application, Regulatory Division staff has 15 days, upon receipt, to determine the completion of the application. As with all divisions, Regulatory Programs relies on the expertise of Agency staff of not only the staff within the unit, but all other units and division staff.
