ACR representatives expected at March planning board meeting

ACR representatives expected at March planning board meeting
by Dan McClelland
At last week's village and town planning board meeting Planner Paul O'Leary reported that he had recently received an e-mail from Robert Sweeney, attorney with the Adirondack Club and Resort project.
Under the guidelines of the planning board's five year old conditional approval of the first phase of the project as part of the planned development district on Mt. Morris and adjoining lands, the ACR leaders were asked by the planners this past year to give monthly reports on the progress of the development.
Sometimes Mr. Sweeney appears in person and sometimes it is Developer Tom Lawson who briefs the board on the unfolding project.  Some months an e-mail suffices, if there isn't much to report.
Mr. Lawson appeared before the planners at the January meeting, armed with volumes of scientific and engineering material prepared by their surveying and engineering contractors on work needed for the state Department of Environmental Conservation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for permission to upgrade an existing logging road at the east end of Lake Simond that will access over a dozen great camp parcels that are ready to be sold.
Mr. Lawson has said in past months there are contracts for sale in place for a half dozen or so of the large forest lots.
The plan for therevenue from the sale of those large lots where some mansion-size camps will eventually be built is for the developers to paythe Oval Wood Dish Corp. for the thousands of acres the resort will occupy and to begin the construction of the infrastructure of the neighborhoods on Mt. Morris where many of the approximately 700houses will be built.
This month, according to the e-mail, neither representative was able to appear in person.
Mr. Sweeney's e-mail said they expect to be at the planners' March 22 meeting at which time they intend to ask the planners for final approval of the planned development district so the project can move ahead, Mr. O'Leary reported last week.
