Land Use Code - Short Term Rental Updates (2022)

Short Term Rental Updates

Public Information Session 


A recording of the public information session can be found here.


In May 2022 the Town and Village Community Development Commission Land Use Code Committee plan to co-host a virtual, public information session to review the ideas with the community for updates to the Short Term Rental (STR) regulations.  The session will review the Committee's process and provide an overview of possible changes to the STR regulations.  Possible changes include clarifying, refining, or establishing relevant definitions and standards in various parts of the Town and Village.  


The ideas that will be reviewed are not formally proposed changes.  They are intended to help facilitate community discussion in order to help shape suggested changes.  

All can join this session virtually at the link below:

Community Interactive Sessions or Open Houses


To see larger maps and give feedback about the Land Use Code Committee's ideas for STR regulation updates, join the Town and Village at an open house.  

  • Saturday, May 14: 10:00am - 12:00pm

  • Monday, May 16: 5:30pm - 7:30pm

The maps showing changes to the STR regulation that are part of the information session will be on-hand for the community to view in greater detail.  Members of the Town of North Elba and Village of Lake Placid will be present and available to answer informational question.





In 2014 the Town of North Elba updated the Comprehensive Plan which called for regulating short term rentals.  Several public forums and hearings were hosted by the Town to gather public input about the proposed STR regulations.  In March of 2020, the proposed regulations were adopted by the Town of North Elba and the Village of Lake Placid.  These initial regulations

  • addressed health and safety issues

  • set up a permit system


Since then, the Town and Village have been closely monitoring the impact of the regulations and gathering public input.  To help refine the current STR regulations, the Land Use Code sub-committee of the Development Commission has worked over the last year to gather ideas for possible updates to the regulations.   


  Once these activities are completed, the Development Commission would summarize public input and present to the Town and Village Boards.  From there, the Boards would draft the changes to the regulations and adopt those supported by Board members via the legislative process.
