Mention must be made to the Adirondack Park Agency Act because the Park Agency has jurisdiction over many aspects of private and public land use in the Town of Caroga. A starting point in understanding Park Agency Regulations is the Citizen's Guide to Adirondack Park Agency Land Use Regulations.
The Adirondack Park Agency Act allows any local government within the Park to develop its own local land use programs which, if approved by the Agency, may transfer some permitting authority from the Agency to the local government's jurisdiction. Caroga has an Agency Approved Local Land Use Program.
