About LivingADK

LivingADK, incorporated in 2001 as the Central Adirondack Partnership for the 21st Century, Inc., is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that is focused on nurturing and supporting vibrant and sustainable year-round Adirondack communities.  LivingADK achieves these goals by promoting economic development, social responsibility and a balance between commerce and nature. 

In recent years, our focus has moved into the four pillars of community health.  These are access to community housing options, broadband, healthcare, social services and an ecological stable economy.  This focus has helped us on our mission of supporting the long-term community goals of the towns of the Western Central Adirondack Region.

Individuals, townships and businesses have a duty to act in the best interests of their environment and society as a whole


A regional view of our area helps facilitate a more robust small business environment  


The very idea of the Adirondacks is a perfect balance of the natural world and healthy communities coexisting to the benefit of both

Natural Resources

ADKs natural environment provides much and we can practice stewardship while also sharing its beauty with visitors 


Many of the resources we need are already right here, we just need to identify them and engage them


All stakeholders and all perspectives should be engaged to work together towards a common goal


We need to be sure to preserve our history while keeping our future in sight
