Model Hillside and Shoreline Preservation Law

The Fund for Lake George
Lake George, New York

The Fund for Lake George is an environmental organization dedicated to preserving and conserving the natural and aesthetic resources of Lake George, which are a significant draw for the region’s tourism. The Fund approached Saratoga Associates with the need to encourage municipalities around the lake to adopt sensible regulations for mitigating the visual and aesthetic impacts of hillside and shoreline development. After an intense period of research and workshops with the organization, Saratoga Associates developed a Model Hillside and Shoreline Preservation Law designed to be adopted by any waterfront community.
