The High Peaks came under tremendous pressure this past summer with the record number of recreation seeking visitors, a pressure not reflected in the resources provided by New York state to properly address the impact of these visitors environmentally. As formerly popular vacation destinations continue to heat up to intolerable temperatures in the summer, this pressure will only intensify. A positive offshoot of this pressure, however, will be the inevitable need to expand options to accommodate these visitors, to build new hotels, providing jobs and stabilizing local economies, especially Saranac Lake. The developers behind the proposed Lake Flower Resort and Spa recognize this and are responding accordingly. I believe it to be especially important in considering the Adirondack Park Agency variances requested by the proposed developers to recognize that this will be by no means the last such proposal for Saranac Lake and other small towns in the Adirondacks. As the demand increases, many more proposals will follow. As such, I believe it especially important to consider this decision in light of the precedent it will set. The APA variances requested by the proposed developers of the Lake Flower Resort and Spa are stated to be necessary because the profitability of the venture is contingent on it having a certain number of rooms and those amenities considered necessary for this type of facility. Think about this. In essence, the developers are stating that the size of the property on which they propose to build is too small for them to build the project they propose within the thoughtful and well-established, protective requirements of the APA.
