Local Government

There are 103 towns and villages and twelve counties in the Adirondacks, each with their own unique issues and needs. Local governments are the governments closest to the people and the most responsive to their needs. Hundreds of town and village residents serve on Adirondack planning and zoning board s to to protect and enhance the values of their communities. The LGRB works closely with all of these counties, towns and villages to help represent the interests of their residents and to help ensure fair representation on matters before the APA. The towns and villages also have their own organization, the AATV (Adirondack Association of Towns & Villages) which serves as a collective voice for the residents of the Adirondack Park on a variety of important issues.
