Planning board seeks employer input on housing
LAKE GEORGE — The Lake Champlain-Lake George Regional Planning Board, or LCLGRPB, is seeking input from all employers in Clinton, Franklin, Essex, and Hamilton counties about local housing issues.
The survey is part of a collaborative regional housing study and strategy that LCLGRPB is leading, along with a mix of stakeholders across the region.
Housing has become a prevalent issue in discussions around the quality of life and the potential for economic development in the region in recent years. The study will seek to identify gaps in the local housing market through data-driven analysis and strategize ways to tackle the region’s housing challenges, according to the LCLGRPB.
“We are excited to be working with our federal, state, and local partners to address workforce housing needs in our region. Housing is an important piece to our regional economy and the vibrance of our communities. We encourage employers to take the time to complete the survey so that we can use this data to work with our local leaders and help retain workforce in the Adirondacks,” said Beth Gilles, executive director of the LCLGRPB.
The online survey is open through July 5 and takes about 10 minutes to complete. To take the survey, visit www.northcountrynyhousing.com/get-involved.
LCLGRPB plans to release a second community-wide survey later this summer.
