Common Ground Alliance

The Adirondack Common Ground Alliance (CGA) is a diverse network of dedicated people who focus on addressing issues that affect the whole Adirondack Park: its communities, economies, institutions, people and environment.

CGA promotes mutual respect, transparency, candor and trust to guide open discussions. The Core Team aspires to a deep level of trust between members in order to foster productive dialogue across the Park.

Each year CGA hosts a forum to help foster communication among stakeholders in the Adirondacks and to seek collaborative solutions to common ground issues. One outcome of the forum is the Blueprint for the Blue Line, a regional strategy for action.
