There is always something going on the Adirondacks…from local shows or celebrations, to regional meetings on important economic or conservation issues.

The Adirondack Park Agency board meets each month, usually on the second Thursday and Friday of the month.

The Adirondack Local Government Day Conference, held in the Spring each year, attracts approximately 300 local government officials from around the Adirondacks to Lake Placid to discuss issues of mutual concern. The Review Board helps establish the agenda for the Conference.

The Common Ground Alliance meeting in Long Lake in mid-July brings together approximately 200 local government officials, environmental groups, state officials business owners and individuals to discuss issues of shared concern. Recent topics include expansion of broadband internet service, invasive species, viable communities, schools and working families. Initiatives supported by the Common Ground are frequently supported b the governor and legislature.

Several times during the year, public hearings are held in various locations throughout the Adirondacks on draft Unit Management Plans for units of state land. Those plans contain recreational access and environmental provisions, and are reviewed by the Adirondack Park Agency for compliance with the Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan.
