What are the mission and vision of the Adirondack Park Agency?

Mission - The mission of the Adirondack Park Agency is to protect the public and private resources of the Park through the exercise of the powers and duties of the Agency as provided by law.

Vision - The Adirondack Park is a unique pattern of public and private lands which Agency Members and Staff envision as a vital and sustainable landscape of varied natural settings, healthy biodiversity, human use and settlements. We will seek a balance of conservation, protection, preservation, development, and use of the resources of the Adirondack Park. We will work in partnership with individuals and institutions to recognize, foster, and share stewardship of the Park. We hope for shared understanding and appreciation of the Park by all.
