According to New York State Senator Betty Little, one of the most effective ways that you can voice your support for the future of Tupper Lake’s economy and the Adirondack Club & Resort is to send a letter of support to your elected officials.  A follow up email never hurts!

The Adirondack Club & Resort offers a once in a lifetime opportunity for Tupper Lake:

  • No public tax dollars requested or required.
  • The continuation of affordable skiing at Big Tupper.
  • Estimated property tax reductions of 30-40% for Tupper Lake residents.
  • The immediate creation of 500 jobs.
  • The foundation for sustained economic growth for Tupper Lake and the North Country.
  • The project fits well within existing land use & zoning requirements.
  • All commercial buildings will follow LEEDS standards.

We’ve posted a letter recently received from Governor David Patterson in support of the efforts of ARISE and the many volunteers in Tupper Lake who made the Big Tupper Ski Area opening this year possible.

We’ve also posted a sample support letter that you can use as a basis for crafting a personal letter of support to your representatives. Simply download the sample support letter and add information (your name, address and phone  along with address information for the recipient).  You can modify the body of the letter to add anything that you feel best expresses your personal thoughts and support for this project.  It would be helpful if you attached a copy of the Governor’s letter to your support letters!
