Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday released a master plan for a $32 million “Gateway to the Adirondacks” at the former Frontier Town theme park in North Hudson.
Local newspapers, including the Enterprise, broke the news on Jan. 12 after the governor’s office released its 2017 State of the State book, which included the proposal, but Cuomo waited until Monday to formally announce it at a press conference in Plattsburgh.
The plan for 300 acres at Exit 29 of the Adirondack Northway will include a visitor information center, a state Department of Environmental Conservation campground and day-use area along the Schroon River, an equestrian center, an event center with tourist accommodations and facilities for hosting shows and festivals, areas designated for commercial business development and historic interactive exhibits about the Adirondack Park.
