The Planning and Zoning Office administers the Zoning Code and Subdivision Regulations of the Town of Lake George.

This office works with the Planning Board and the Zoning Board of Appeals in regulating development throughout the Town. Meetings of the Boards are held monthly, the first Tuesday for the Planning Board and the second Wednesday for the Zoning Board of Appeals. Other meetings are held when necessary.

      (Please note Zoning Board of Appeals Meetings are on a new schedule...2nd Wednesdays...beginning in March, 2014)

In order to be included on an agenda for a specific date, applications and paper work must be submitted to the Office prior to the deadline.  Included on this page (Planning Board Meeting Schedule  and Application Deadlines, Zoning Board Meeting Schedule and Application Deadlines) are the dates of the 2014 Planning Board and Zoning Board Meetings along with the deadline dates for applications.

It is through this office that those involved in any building or development would obtain a Certificate of Compliance, a document necessary in order to obtain a Building Permit from the County.

Copies of the Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Regulations can be found in the Lake George Town Code which has a link on this page.
