Did you know that Hamilton County in the Adirondacks has the lowest population density out of any county in New York? Well, it’s true – 1/km² (3/mi²). I also think it may be the only county in New York that does not feature a stoplight. Interesting, right? Add the fact that most of the land is owned by the state and is “forever wild”. One would rightly assume that economic development has been and will always be a challenge there.
Here’s an event of interest which I highly recommend:
SMART PLANS FOR REAL GROWTH
How to Sustain and Grow an Adirondack Business
OCTOBER 10, 2007
10:00AM (SHARP) – 4:00PM (SHARP)
In the morning, seven different Hamilton County business owners will tell us how they are meeting the challenges of our highly seasonal economy; what has worked and what has not, what the future looks like and what support is needed.
The afternoon session will be turned over to local officials, state officials, a banker and perhaps a surprise guest. They will react to what they heard in the morning. They’ll tell us how they can help and what services are available. And we’ll get a glimpse of the future through their eyes.
We’ll hear from the audience also.
This will be an action oriented, practical day about bringing bodies through our doors NOW, not in the distant future. You will leave with plans to implement.
The museum cafeteria will be open for lunch and registrants will receive a free pass to the Adirondack Museum for the day.
Pre-registration required. Don’t miss this one!
