BUILDING BALANCED COMMUNITIES
FOR THE NORTH COUNTRY:

A Comprehensive Housing Study and Strategy

About the Project

The Lake Champlain-Lake George Regional Planning Board (LCLGRPB), along with a mix of stakeholders across a four-county region, is leading a collaborative effort to identify specific gaps in the local housing market through data-driven analysis. 

This analysis will be combined with interviews and engagement with regional housing developers, residents, and community leaders to generate a comprehensive housing study and strategy. The study will not only establish the need, but will bring together the right partners to practically tackle the broad challenges facing the region's housing sector. 


Work on the study kicked off in April 2022 and data collection is anticipated to be complete in early 2023. Funding for this project is from the Northern Border Regional Commission. 

 

This website will provide a place for feedback, input, and support from community members throughout the  development of this study.
