Lake Placid Advances Multi-Million-Dollar Infrastructure Projects

The Lake Placid Town Council approved several significant infrastructure projects, including a multi-million-dollar sewer extension, during their latest meeting.

The most notable discussion centered around the grant application for a septic to sewer project. A preliminary application had been submitted, and the town attorney sought approval for the mayor to sign off on the full application. This project aims to extend sewer lines and cover hookup costs, with an estimated total exceeding 100 million dollars. After discussion, the council voted in favor of allowing the mayor to approve the grant application.

Another decision made by the council was the purchase of a lift station along Green Dragon Drive’s south end. This resolution authorizes the mayor to finalize the purchase. The dialogue included considerations for removing an existing lift station and potential area expansion. The council also deliberated the acquisition of a utility corridor, which could dual as a pathway. Despite questions about the necessity of land purchase versus obtaining an easement and the impact on property owners, the council approved the purchase. The community member’s concerns were addressed, explaining the absence of plat utility easements necessitated the land acquisition.

Further enhancing local amenities, the council unanimously endorsed a proposal for obtaining utility easements to create a pathway intended for jogging, biking, and other outdoor activities. In addition, they reviewed phase three of a project plan involving pickleball courts and parking facilities. The plan addresses parking needs during events and includes boat parking, relocation of pavilions, and modifications to existing parking areas.

Public safety and services were also on the agenda. The council received updates on the Lake Placid Police Department’s initiatives and a multimillion-dollar wastewater treatment plant project’s progress. Infrastructure advancements were noted, such as the Camp and Conference Center’s onsite improvements and related projects. The Public Works Director informed the council about the imminent opening of a new playground at Taylor Park.

Concerns were raised about road conditions in multiple areas, including West Inner Lake, Lake June Point, and Harland Boulevard, prompting discussions about necessary maintenance to prevent potential accidents.
