From the article:
Quote:
While much of the intensive development is proposed for lands classified "Moderate Intensity Use," where the law intends for it take place, of major concern to PROTECT! and the Sierra Club, is the proposed fragmentation of 4,805 acres of undeveloped forest lands classified "Resource Management" by the Adirondack Park Agency Act, into 35 "Great Camp" lots and 45 other smaller lots.
By my calculation that's an average of 60 acres per lot.

From APA website:
Quote:
RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
Most development activities in resource management areas will require an Agency permit; compatible uses include residential uses, agriculture, and forestry. Special care is taken to protect the natural open space character of these lands.
Avg lot size: 42.7 acres.
