In March of 2020 the Town Board of North Elba and the Village Board of Lake Placid both directed the Community Development Commission to spearhead an initiative to review and revise the 2011 Land Use Code.
The Land Use Code Committee conducted a number of public feedback sessions and public meetings from 2020-2022 and presented its final recommendations regarding administrative changes in 2022.

It held an additional public information session regrading Short Term Rental regulations, two public workshops, and a public feedback survey. The final recommendations from the Committee were presented to the Boards in June of 2022.
More information, survey data, and documents can be found on the Land Use Code Committee Project Page.
The Development Commission has also made recommendations regarding the Dark Skies initiative, Unified Solar Permit adoption, Smart Growth Policies, and policies to encourage walkability in the town/village.
