The Town of Fine is committed to providing courteous,
high quality municipal services while operating a transparent
and economical government.
We will continually strive to enrich the quality of life
for the citizens of our Adirondack Town.
Located in Southwest St. Lawrence County, the Town of Fine is named after John Fine, the original landowner. The town was established in 1844 and Amasa Brown was the first Town Supervisor. It covers an area of approxiamately 169 square miles. The town is entirely within the Adirondack Park.
The Town is located in the 47th Senatorial District, the 21st Congressional District and the 118th Assembly District. The 2010 census population was 1512.
Building permits are required, and can be obtained through the code enforcement officer.
The Town of Fine offers the outdoor enthusiast a number of activities, be it spring, summer, fall, or winter. Some of these activities include hiking, mountain biking, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, snowmobiling, riding horseback, or ATV's on many of the designated conservation trails. (you can contact the DEC to find out what trails are open for what activities.) From picnicking at the Griffin Memorial Forest or the picnic area in Wanakena, to fishing any number of the different waterways, there are many ways to enjoy the beauty of our town. Kids can enjoy playing at any of the playgrounds and tennis courts located in the four hamlets. Also, in the summer months, the Youth Commission offers PeeWee Baseball, T-Ball, and Arts & Crafts at the school. Many people enjoy camping, fishing, or canoeing, on the various rivers or lakes. Hunting is also a very popular sport in our area. Star Lake is home to the community's 9-hole golf course and driving range. The C-F Arena is next door where you can enjoy ice hockey or skating. The picturesque hamlet of Wanakena offers much more than just quiet beauty. You can enjoy a peaceful walk on the historic swinging bridge while taking the walking tour of Wanakena, visit the NYS Ranger School, where they offer summer forest tours, or just ride around and see the many deer that visit with the residents there. Whatever it is that you enjoy doing in the Town of Fine, remember to have fun!
