UPDATE: April 19, 2018:
The next step of the Main Street Sanitary Sewer Project is about to begin. Starting Monday, April 23 – Friday, May 4, Kenyon Pipeline will be doing cleaning and camera-ing work from 1 Main Street and running to the Post Office. This work will be done one section at a time and property owners will be alerted the prior day when work will be done in front of their businesses. There will be no parking allowed for short periods of time in the sections where work is being done. An inspector will be on duty at all times, and if you have any questions/concerns during the workday it is recommended you ask him because he will be the most knowledgeable.
The following phase of the project will be installation of the slipline, which is scheduled to go May 7 – May 21. While work is being done it is recommended that water usage be reduced, but it will not have to be shut off. There will be longer periods of no parking in sections being worked on, but again these alerts will be made the day prior to work beginning in a section.
Updates will be provided as the project progresses. The next project meeting is April 27. Additional information will be provided after that time. Please remember all scheduled work is weather dependent.
We are working towards a sounder, safer Lake Placid infrastructure. Your patience during that work is greatly appreciated.
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.
