Lake Placid/North Elba Community Development Commission

Art Initiative

Art Initiative

The 2014 Comprehensive Plan and the Lake Placid / North Elba Development Commission both recognize the importance of the arts. Public exposure to the arts helps to establish a positive community character and increasing art tourism is part of our economic development plan.

In order to promote cooperation among organizations involved in the arts and increase cross marketing the Development Commission established the Lake Placid Insider in 2017. The Insider is an e-mail sent to subscribers on a bi-weekly basis informing them of events related to the arts and performances. It is possible to subscribe by clicking on the following link:

In 2019 the Development Commission partnered with the Cornell Institute for Public Affairs to examine possible strategies to increase the role of the arts in the community, promote and encourage local artistic expressions, and develop the area as an arts destination. The report is available below:
