Please take the 5 minute survey for LivingADK to help us determine the feasibility of a cohabitation program in the Central Western Adirondack region to help our seniors and young families with year round housing.  Please take the survey if you are interested in learning more about the program, or about what being a host would entail.  This is NOT a requirement to participate if you take this survey, this is to understand interest.

LivingADK started as Communities 2000 and was then incorporated in 2001 as a regional not-for-profit organization that provides a forum for community concerns, interests and aspirations of residents in the Western Central Adirondacks. LivingADK seeks to promote vibrant and sustainable communities along the Route 28 corridor within the towns of Forestport, Webb, Inlet, Long Lake and adjacent communities. Throughout this strategic planning document, when we refer to communities, we are talking inclusively about our year-round and seasonal residents, as well as visitors to our region.

 

Mission

LivingADK will be the leading organization to foster and support vibrant and sustainable year-round Western Central Adirondack communities by planning, identifying and securing resources to promote economic development, social responsibility and a balance of commerce and nature.
