Lake George OKs taller buildings
LAKE GEORGE -- Officials in a popular Adirondack tourist destination have approved changes to local zoning laws that would allow buildings of up to six stories.
The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports that the Lake George Village Board unanimously approved the zoning changes Monday night, paving the way for a major hotel project and other potential development along areas of Canada Street, the resort community's main drag.
The approval comes a year after a developer proposed to build a large chain hotel in the heart of the village's business district.
The new zoning district allows for buildings of up to four stories in some parts of the village, and buildings of up to six stories in others. Building heights in the village had been capped at three stories or 40 feet.
