What is the Agency's regulatory role in relation to business?

For private lands within the Adirondack Park, the Adirondack Park Agency Act specifies six different land use areas and the types of development which are compatible in each. The Act classifies Adirondack land according to its ability to support various kinds of development. While business development is not prohibited in any of the six land use areas, the Agency's regulatory role, through its development permitting process, is to determine the ability of sites within specific land use areas to accommodate well defined projects.
