If a permit comes through...
October 17, 2011 - Jessica Collier
At Thursday's town budget workshop, Tom Lawson showed up to advocate again for the town to put money toward an events coordinator job, talking about how it will be crucial to Tupper Lake's economic growth, which would obviously help the resort.
He said that when the APA approves the project, the ACR is willing to contribute a third of the costs of the position.
He also talked a little bit about how he wants things to go once the permit is approved by the APA, which he said he's pretty sure will happen.
"When the permit comes in, I want to go from zero to 60 in a heartbeat," Lawson told the town board. He said that if a part of the project needs local approval, like for demolition, if he gets a permit for that at 10 a.m., he wants to put people to work at 11 a.m.
But the first step is getting APA commissioners to vote in favor of the ACR permit.
"My entire life is subject to APA approval," Lawson said.
The project still has a few other agencies it must get approval from before work could begin, including the state Department of Environmental Conservation, which issued it a notice of incomplete application last fall, and the local planning board.
