In Recognition of the Capital Region, Mohawk Valley, and North County Regional Economic Development Councils
Adirondack Park Local Government Day 2014
On this 10th day of April, 2014, at Adirondack Park Local Government Day, the Adirondack Association of Towns and Villages, the Adirondack Park Local Government Review Board, and the NYS Adirondack Park Agency, in conjunction with other cooperating agencies and organizations, pause to recognize the work of the three Regional Economic Development Councils representing the Park. Since 2011, the Councils have brought over $672.8 million in grant and tax credit funds to their respective regions, and in 2013, each region was recognized as a Top Performer in the Governor’s Regional Economic Development Council competition.
Projects funded through the Councils are already transforming the Adirondack economy with projects such as broadband expansion, biomass facilities, and infrastructure upgrades improving the economic opportunities of the Park. Additionally, new business initiatives such as the Trudeau-Clarkson Partnership, Start-UP New York, and the Innovation Hot-Spots program will foster new businesses across the regions. Through their guidance, and the leadership of Governor Cuomo, the Capital Region, Mohawk Valley, and North Country Regional Economic Development Councils have ushered in a new paradigm of economic advancement in the Adirondacks.
The participating organizations at Local Government Day, 2014, do hereby recognize the contributions of the three Councils and thank them for their service to the communities of the Adirondack Park.
