For residents 65 years of age and older, the deadline to renew your Enhanced STAR and Senior Citizens exemptions is Friday, March 1st.
At least one owner needs to be 65 years of age (or turning 65 before 12/31/19.) Eligibility is based on income reported to the IRS and NYS in 2017 for all owners and anyone else living in the home. The maximum income to receive Enhanced STAR is $86,300 and the maximum for the Senior Citizens exemption is $33,000. For those who are no longer required to file tax returns, there is a worksheet to verify income.
These exemptions are very important to our older citizens and we don't want to see anyone lose them simply because they didn't renew. North Elba residents were sent renewal applications in November, so if they have been misplaced or help is needed completing them, please visit our office at the North Elba Town Hall or call our exemption coordinator, Deb Mueller, at 518-523-1975. For those who don't live in Town of North Elba, please contact your town assessor.
More information about these exemptions is also available at the following websites:
Due to a lack of drivers, Placid Xpress SUNDAY Service is suspended effective immediately. Updates will be provided as available.
Welcome to the Village of Lake Placid official website. The Village of Lake Placid was incorporated in 1900 and is located in the Town of North Elba in the Adirondack Mountains in the northwestern corner of Essex County, New York. The Village is internationally known having proudly hosted the Winter Olympics twice in 1932 and 1980 and is the site of the "Miracle on Ice" when the USA men's hockey team defeated the heavily favored USSR team to go on and win the Gold Medal in the '80 Olympics. Lake Placid is also home to one of only three year-round United States Olympic Training Centers and periodically hosts world-class competitions in downhill and Nordic skiing, biathlon, ski jumping, luge, bobsledding, skeleton, speed skating and figure skating.
In a setting offering incredible views of the Adirondack Mountains including New York State's highest peak at Mt. Marcy, Lake Placid provides a plethora of outdoor activities from downhill skiing on Whiteface, the Olympic Mountain, to cross-country skiing, year-round hiking, fishing, ice-climbing, cycling, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, and snowmobiling. The Village of Lake Placid annually host the Empire State Winter Games in February, the Lake Placid and I Love New York Horseshows in late June, and the Lake Placid Ironman in July.
In addition, the Village of Lake Placid offers outstanding dining experiences at its many restaurants, hotels and resorts, unique shopping experiences along its picturesque Main Street and many cultural activities. The Lake Placid Center for the Arts offers year-round music, dance, theatre, film and family programs. The Lake Placid Sinfonietta is a summer chamber orchestra whose musicians come from larger orchestras and university faculties throughout the country. For six weeks in the summer the Sinfonietta offers weekly classical performances at the Center for the Arts on Sunday evenings, in Mid's Park on Main Street on Wednesday evenings, and at various locations in the Adirondacks. The Lake Placid Film Forum was co-founded in 2000 by author Russell Banks, former New York Daily News Critic Kathleen Carroll and artist Naj Wikoff and is an annual mid-June event which, like a film festival, exhibits a series of films and often features the filmmakers and cast members who attend the screenings. The Lake Placid Institute creates opportunities for learning, sharing, and enjoying the cultural life of the Adirondacks.
A small town with a big city feel, the Village of Lake Placid is a great place to raise a family. Both public and private schools offer a well-rounded education to our children at the Lake Placid Central School, North Country School, Northwood School and National Sports Academy. Excellent health care facilities are provided by Adirondack Health with 24-hour emergency services, outpatient services and primary and specialty care services.
The Village of Lake Placid maintains this website to provide village related news, meetings, documents and contact information to our residents and visitors alike.
