Why do you value the Creative Industries in the North Fork?

Creativity in the arts and agriculture in this valley is the foundation of our economy. We live in a place of extraordinary beauty and rare environmental quality. Keeping a strong creative energy alive and economically viable in this valley, keeping our state Certified Creative District, gives us a big block in our fortification against the invasion of the extractive energy industry hounds always at our door.
