  • Carol W. LaGrasse"APA Statute of Limitations Passes Senate" - By Carol W. LaGrasse, PRFA, June 30, 2010
    On June 25, 2010 the State Senate passed legislation sponsored by Sen. Elizabeth O'C. Little that would impose a ten-year statute of limitations on enforcement of violations of the Adirondack park Agency law. The ten-year limit would be measured from the date of the alleged violation or from the date on which a public servant, exercising reasonable diligence, should have discovered the violation.
  • "APA Announces GIS-Based Enforcement" - By Carol W. LaGrasse, PRFA, February 2, 2008
    It is over thirteen years since PRFA published its "APA Shell Game" revealing that the APA was developing an unsurpassed GIS capacity to enforce its environmental zoning regulations. This January the APA announced that it was going to tap into a statewide real estate database, coupled with GIS, to find old violations of the APA law. The State Legislature should pass a statute of limitations on violations of the APA Act.
