The City of Plattsburgh is a community extraordinary in its orientation to Lake Champlain and the Saranac River that possesses rich environmental, recreational, historical, cultural, artistic, and economic resources. Our trails, parks, marinas, and boat launches will maximize access to our waterways, creating unforgettable recreational experiences and optimizing permanent public access. This is the vision statement from the City of Plattsburgh’s draft Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP). The purpose of the program is to outline a vision for the city’s waterfront, set forth policies and a management structure to implement the program, and identify key projects that will increase access to the waterfront, promote recreational opportunities as well as preserve the land for future generations.
In 2018 the city received a second EPF LWRP grant to finalize the document as well as update the city’s Comprehensive Plan and city codes. A committee of sixteen community members has been assembled to advise the process and a team of consultants led by Saratoga Associates will be responsible for completing the project.
Coordinating development of the LWRP with the Comprehensive Plan and city code updates is an excellent way to ensure that the City’s planning and regulatory framework will meet the City’s goals for revitalization of the waterfront and support the natural, cultural, and economic resources so vital to the City’s future.
