Economic Development 


The Village of Lake George, in coordination with the Adirondack Park Agency’s Hamlet Economic Planning and Assistance initiative, are developing an economic development plan for the Hamlet areas of Lake George.  The plan will also seek to leverage improvements from the Gateway Project, which will turn Route 9 from Exit 21 to the Village line into a boulevard with sidewalks, new lighting, a median, and bike lanes, to generate new growth in the community.   In order to determine components of the plan, we seek your input and feedback.  Please fill out this survey so that we can achieve your vision for Lake George!  Link:
