Even the most perfect place needs a little TLC

every now and then


Lake Placid is undergoing a reconstruction initiative for its Main Street infrastructure. The goals of this project will be to upgrade our business district so that it will be sustainable for residents and travelers to enjoy for years to come. Main Street’s unique setting on the edge of Mirror Lake with shops, restaurants, and parks has experienced a tremendous amount of growth since it’s first conception in the 1800s and now it’s time for us to catch up!

  • Enhance safety for drivers and pedestrians.

  • Redesign infrastructure to meet the needs of businesses and residents.
