 AN ACT to amend the executive law, in relation to preserving  ecological
   integrity, wildlife and open space in the Adirondack park
 
   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Legislative findings and statement of purpose. When enacted
 in nineteen hundred seventy-three, the  Adirondack  park  land  use  and
 development   plan   represented  an  historic  application  of  natural
 resource-based land use control and economic opportunity for the  park's
 residents  and communities. For over forty years, the plan has sought to
 insure optimum overall conservation, protection, preservation,  develop-
 ment  and  use  of the unique scenic, aesthetic, wildlife, recreational,
 open space, historic, ecological and natural resources of this cherished
 area and the essential interdependence of economic and  community  needs
 through balanced apportionment of land use within the park.
   Conservation  science  and  land use planning techniques have advanced
 since the enactment of the plan.  It is now recognized that the  spatial
 pattern  of development is fully, if not more, as ecologically important
 as its overall density.
   Subdivision of land into large  residential  lots,  or  rural  sprawl,
 impairs  ecosystem  function, decreases biotic integrity, alters species
 behavior and composition, increases human-wildlife conflicts,  fragments
 ownership,  impairs  cohesive land management, undermines the open space
 character of the park, and threatens its agricultural and forestry work-
 ing landscapes.
