Background 

 

In March of 2020, the Town of North Elba and Village of Lake Placid Boards directed the Community Development Commission to review and revise the 2011 Town and Village Land Use Code (LUC) for clarity and consistency.  In response the Development Commission created a Land Use Code Revision Committee.  This committee includes those who have firsthand knowledge of the existing Code, and represent the Town and Village Code Enforcement Office as well as the Town and Village Boards.  

 

The Land Use Code Revision Committee reviews the Land Use Code and makes recommendations to help keep it aligned with the Town and Village's Comprehensive Plan.  The recommendations are intended to help promote smart growth, improve environmental standards, clarify signage concerns, specify structure definitions for the shoreland overlay, and address administrative and enforcement concerns. 

 

The Committee began their review process in May 2020.  Recommendations were presented to the Town and Village Boards on April 8, 2021.  See the summary of proposed updates to the 2011 Land Use Code below under "Documents". The next steps anticipated for the updating are:

 

  • May - June 2021: external review via public presentation and request for feedback

  • July 2021: adjustments based upon feedback and conceptual approval

  • August - September 2021: drafting revisions to the Code

  • October 2021 - January 2022: adoption
