The Adirondack Common Ground Alliance forum looked differently this year than in most years. Like most everything else, it was conducted virtually. It also focused, for the first time, on the singular topic of attracting a new generation to the Adirondacks. The 2020 virtual forum and helped identify the following four primary opportunities for state investment​ in the Adirondacks, summarized in this year's Blueprint for the Blue Line:

  • Evaluate Cellular & Broadband deployment
  • Invest in Childcare
  • Extend funding for the Adirondack Diversity Initiative
  • Expand funding to deal with the increased use of the High Peaks in the Forest Preserve
