– The Town of North Elba and Village of Lake Placid are set to unveil the results of a Joint Community Housing Needs Assessment. A public presentation of the findings will be held on Wednesday January 22nd at 6 p.m. in the Lake Placid High School Auditorium.
The study includes information regarding identified critical community housing issues, the estimated additional housing needed in the community, and recommendations for addressing those issues and needs. A Community Open House was held in November and an online survey was distributed in December to collect public input for the assessment. Those results will also be presented.
The project was led by the Joint Community Housing Committee, which was established in 2019 by the Town of North Elba and Village of Lake Placid to address the housing goals of the Joint Comprehensive Plan. Camoin 310, a Saratoga Springs based consulting firm, assisted in the assessment.
“The Assessment is an important step in quantifying changes that have taken place in the population and housing stock and formulating strategies to address unmet needs in the community,” Committee Chair Kilburn Politi said.
The meeting will start with a presentation of the results. After the presentation members of the Joint Community Housing Committee and the consulting team will be available to answer questions from the public.
