Orda constitutional amendment

https://www.adirondackdailyenterprise.com/news/local-news/2019/08/van-ho-trees-were-cut-on-forest-preserve-too/

Orda has agreed to get article 14 amended.  This is the clause that prevents the state from selling or leasing WF and Gore to a corporation  
they are doing this for some Mt Vanho issues but while its being changed why not allow for the potential to lease to Epic or Ikon as this is literally a once in a lifetime window of opportunity
It would put the ski areas under world class management and make them into money generation for the state instead of burdens on the state budget

This is too good of a chance to pass up

Re: Orda constitutional amendment

TLDR, but what I read in that was that ORDA wants to amend the rules to allow them to manage Mt VanHo pretty much the same way they manage Gore and WF. It's got nothing to do with Epic or Ikon. They were in Max Pass, and if that had worked out for everyone they presumably could have been in Ikon. What's the big deal? Am I missing something?

No.

There is no big deal. Z is speculating.

So basically they want it reclassified as an intensive use area, or whatever they call Gore.

What I got from it is that they’ve already started treating it that way and want to amend the rules to conform with what they’re doing.

Re: Orda constitutional amendment

I'm wondering if that was what happened, hence my first comment.

Re: Orda constitutional amendment

Clearly you guys didn’t read the article before posting a reply
The short version is
Basically Orda has been ignoring the rules at Vanho and has been getting some backdoor wink wink type go ahead from the Dec to cut trees.  Then they chipped them and said trees? What trees? So now the Protect ambulance chasers had a hissy fit and got Orda to agree to amend article 14

My point is everyone has always said that there is no way the Orda issues on constitutional amendment ever see the light of the legislature or the required votes.  If it’s going to happen now is the time to change the lease potential as it’s in the same clause that need will get amended.

It would be awesome juju for the pain they put Tupper thru if those legal bozos at Protect we’re the ones to force the issue.

Re: Orda constitutional amendment

You can’t tie the two issues together. The sale/lease of GORE/WF would be too controversial and could lead to the defeat of the Mt Vanho amendment. Those properties need more real estate development rights to make them attractive, and that would make it even more controversial.
Ikon/Epic is a separate issue. I’m guessing ORDA wasn’t happy with Max pass or the Vermont mountains don’t want ORDA competition, but we really don’t know.
