Parking Fees, Times and Permit Spaces to Increase
The Village Board, in an attempt to better manage parking on Main Street, voted at last evening’s meeting to increase the annual parking permit fee and the bank parking lot, clock tower parking lot and curbside parking fees from the Post Office to One Main Street. Maximum parking time curbside and in the bank and clock tower parking lots will also increase from two hours to four hours.
Effective May 10th, annual permit parking fees will increase to $150/year (42 cents per day) while the aforementioned parking lots and curbside parking will increase to $2.00/hour (at a date yet to be announced). Additional permit parking spaces will be designated along Parkside Ave., Mirror Lake Drive and the Stewart’s Parking lot on lower Main Street. Parking fees in the Municipal Lot across from the Post Office will remain at 50 cents per hour or $5.00 per day maximum.
Statement from Lake Placid Mayor Craig H. Randall
 "On Monday, March 21, 2016, Quebec City Mayor Regis Labeaume called to inform me that he's visiting the International Olympic Committee in Lausanne, Switzerland because Quebec City is interested in investigating a potential future Olympic Winter Games bid.

The IOC's Agenda 2020 emphasizes the re-use of existing facilities, so Mayor Labeaume said he planned to reach out to Lake Placid, Calgary and Vancouver to see if it would be acceptable for Quebec City to investigate the use of venues in those three cities for a 2026 Olympic Winter Games bid.

I was flattered that Mayor Labeaume reached out to Lake Placid, and I told him to please keep Lake Placid included in his investigation for possible venue use in an Olympic bid. 

Lake Placid continues its 100-percent support of the U.S. Olympic Committee and Los Angeles' quest for the 2024 Olympic Games."


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.
