Frontier Town

August 9, 2017

Chazen has been working with the Open Space Institute on the proposed redevelopment of the Frontier Town property (aka Gateway to the Adirondacks) since 2016. Frontier Town was a wild west theme park that opened in the 1950s, and has been vacant since it closed in 1998.

Among other assignments, Chazen has been responsible for conducting wetland delineations and ecological assessments on the 205-acre site, including coordination with the NYSDEC to identify regulated protected streams with the Adirondack Park Agency wetlands, and with the US Army Corp of Engineers to identify federally regulated aquatic resources.

New site programing being proposed will be responsive to the natural resources identified on the property.
