Yesterday, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced a $14 million project to build a new mid-station lodge at Whiteface Mountain Ski Resort replacing the structure that was destroyed by fire on November 30, 2019. The Olympic Regional Development Authority plans to begin constructing the new lodge this spring.

This would be a wasteful use of taxpayer money and must be stopped at all cost.
This money could be used in so many more productive ways. Whiteface Mountain has two brand new lodges. While many people are upset with the burning of the old Mid-Station lodge, they must realize how over budget this project is. The resounding feedback from patrons and the community stress a need for some type of suitable replacement. However, I don't think anyone anticipated or hoped for this radical of an expenditure. 

It is my wish that this petition can either bring this project to a halt or amend the current budget for this product. It is our responsibility as New York State Residents to act before it is too late. The Adirondacks have been the target for many of Cuomo's spending. The money he has invested in this area doesn't aid or sustain the population of residents. This agenda serves the corporate agenda to only further gentrifying this area into a tourist only residency. 

I assure you, this money would be better spent on sustainable infrastructure that would better benefit those who visit or reside in this area. Whiteface Mountain is a staple in the community for locals and tourists alike. That being sad, this still remains a gross misuse of state funds.
