Housing Study Considered For Lake Placid

The Lake Placid-North Elba Community Development Commission’s Housing Committee is looking to do a study on affordable housing. It would examine the income range the committee should focus on serving, what housing stock is currently available to people who fall within that income range, what would be considered “affordable housing” for residents of this area, and potential gaps in the housing market, reports the Adirondack Daily Enterprise. The Community Development Commission will need to return to the town board at a later date to request $20,000 from the town’s Adirondack Community Housing Fund to hire a consultant to do this work.
