Pathways: A Plan for North Elba and Lake Placid Town of North Elba & Village of Lake Placid Comprehensive Plan Update 2024


Dear Community Members and Stakeholders,


The Town of North Elba and Village of Lake Placid are pleased to announce the North Elba-Lake Placid Pathways project. Pathways is a project to update the Town and Village’s joint Comprehensive Plan, a document that charts a future for the community. The plan will be grounded in public input, and we need your help spreading the word about our new Visioning Survey! Please take the 10-minute survey and spread the word to your community by forwarding this email or using the attached flyers (web and print versions). This survey will also inform the ongoing LEED for Communities Recertification for the New York Olympic Region and a new North Elba Show Grounds & Athletic Fields master plan project. Your input is critical to the success of these three plans.  


Take the survey here.


Why this project? 


The North Elba-Lake Placid Pathways Plan is a comprehensive planning process. A comprehensive plan is a policy document that identifies community values, goals, and policy priorities. Comp plans guide future land use and economic development decisions for a community and cover a range of topics, including transportation, housing, energy, conservation, recreation, and zoning. The Town and Village are jointly undertaking this planning process to build community health and resilience.
