Sign this Petition for Clean Water, Jobs & Wilderness

 

The climate crisis is here and impacting every corner of our state, including the pristine wilderness areas of the Adirondack Park. We have an opportunity to make great strides in the fight against climate change, water pollution, and economic instability through the “Forever Adirondacks” Campaign.

The “Forever Adirondacks” Campaign coalition is a diverse group of stakeholders who recognize this moment in time as crucial to the success, or failure, of our efforts to preserve this national treasure, safeguard the forests that protect our clean waters, and in the process, make Adirondack communities more vibrant and sustainable. 

The campaign coalition calls upon state and federal officials to invest in protecting clean water and wilderness. Those investments will protect public health, improve carbon sequestration, expand wildlife habitat and create sustainable, well-paid new jobs. New employment opportunities will expand the appeal of Adirondack communities while reinforcing the value of environmental protection. 

We support:

Jobs:
$50 million for new wilderness trails, sanitation facilities, and visitor management
$90 million for New York Works capital improvement projects, with emphasis on climate
$92.5 million for updated competitive winter sports venues around Lake Placid
$1.1 billion in state/federal funds for Gov. Kathy Hochul’s “ConnectAll” broadband initiative

Water Protection:
$500 million for Clean Water/ Drinking Water infrastructure grants for municipalities
$17 million to prevent aquatic invasive species introductions
$5 million increase to the US Environmental Protection Agency acid rain/climate monitoring
$2 million in federal budget for 21st Century Adirondack comprehensive lake survey

Wilderness Protection
$40 million would be spent on open space
$30 million of the new capital funding is dedicated to developing the North Creek Ski Bowl
Additional staff at the NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation and Adirondack Park Agency
