Members of ARISE include business people, elected officials, organizations, and individuals who support the need for a vibrant economy. Our members believe that there has been an overwhelming amount of resources spent to protect the natural environment of the Adirondacks, with very little interest and resources, for the fragile economy.

We are concerned about the economic survival of businesses and individuals within the Park, and feel that we are at a tipping point where further declines in population and community health are at a breaking point.

  • Populations have been decreasing within the Park
  • Property taxes are rising at exponential rates
  • Energy costs are beyond many Park residents ability to pay
  • Dependency on government employment continues to rise, with no guarantee that they will continue
  • Housing has become less affordable
  • Young people have little choice but to leave the area for employment

ARISE supports economic growth within the Adirondack Park, while respecting the natural resources that make our area unique. This includes tourism, manufacturing, the second home industry, and the service industry.

Our primary objective is to support community economic development, such as the Adirondack Club and Resort planned for the Tupper Lake area. The ACR project will employ hundreds of people during the construction phase, and beyond. The ACR will increase the tax base substantially, and will create residual businesses in Tupper Lake and the surrounding communities. It is a project that offers tremendous opportunity at a time when it is needed most.

It is time that local economies have the same protection as the environment.  We ask that you show your support in two very important ways:
