Comprehensive Plan Announcement
The Town of Long Lake has begun work on a Comprehensive Plan, a community driven plan that will articulate residents’ vision for the future and serve and as the Town’s official policy document. This plan is funded in part through an Empire State Development grant awarded to the Town of Long Lake in 2019 through the North Country Regional Economic Development Council.
The plan, which will be developed over the course of the next year, will provide an organizing framework to address issues including, but not limited to, economic growth, infrastructure, housing, transportation, environmental resources, recreation and quality of life.
Once completed, the Comprehensive Plan will be adopted by the Town Board and will help guide policy decisions and provide an invaluable tool for securing state grant funding to implement the projects and programs identified in the plan.
A Comprehensive Plan Committee will lead the process with assistance from planners with the Chazen Companies. The Committee consists of representatives from full and part time residents, business owners, elected officials, and town staff. Meaningful public engagement is crucial to the development of the plan and residents are encouraged to attend public meetings, participate in workshops and contact members of the Comprehensive Plan Committee and the Chazen Companies. Such public outreach events will be publicized in on the Town website www.mylonglake.com/comprehensiveplan and social media outlets including Facebook.com/mylonglake and facebook.com/raquettelake,
