Cuomo appoints St. Lawrence resident to APA board


Gov. Andrew Cuomo has appointed a resident of St. Lawrence County to the Adirondack Park Agency, which is charged with land-use plans inside the blue line.
A good portion of eastern St. Lawrence County is within the Adirondack Park, including Wanakena, in the town of Fine.
Sherman Craig, the owner of Wanakena Woodworks, was appointed to the APA board. He's the first St. Lawrence County resident to be appointed to the board, said Republican Sens. Joe Griffo and Patty Ritchie.
Mr. Griffo represents the eastern portion of St. Lawrence County, including the nine towns within the blue line. Mrs. Ritchie has the west. They both called for better land-use plans that help the economy grow.
"St. Lawrence County communities are proud to be part of the unique resource that is the Adirondack Park, but being within the Park’s boundaries has too often created problems and obstacles to the economic growth of these same communities," Mr. Griffo said in a news release.
Said Mrs. Ritchie: "I am confident that having a local small businessman on the APA board will help ensure that the needs of these residents and their communities are well represented, and I look forward to hearing from Mr. Craig as his nomination moves through the Senate.”
