Primary Development Areas
Fulton County’s Development Strategy recommends the creation of
three Primary Development Areas (PDA).
Development Concept Plans for each Development Area identify a mixture of housing, commercial, retail, recreational and mixed use types of development. All three PDA’s are ready to be developed, supported at the local level and are properly zoned.
The 490 +/- acre Hales Mills Development Area is envisioned as a vibrant, walkable and accessible neighborhood featuring housing, retail, commerce and recreational opportunities in a picturesque environment.
The Tryon Development Area is a 100+/- acre tract of land owned by the Fulton County Industrial Development Agency. This prime tract of land is immediately available for sale and development. This picturesque site with beautiful vistas is an attractive location for various types of housing.
The Vail Mills Development Area offers premier opportunities for infill development in the hamlet of Vail Mills located at the intersection of NYS Routes 29 and 30; a key gateway to the Great Sacandaga Lake and the Adirondack State Park.
As a “Gateway to the Adirondacks” the Vail Mills Development Area is witness to over 10,000 average daily traffic volumes. The development area includes several successful businesses and a rail trail.
