Lake George Data Atlas Development Potential Estimates

August 9, 2017

Chazen prepared the Lake George Data Atlas, a project funded by the Lake George Association and the Lake Champlain/Lake George Regional Planning Board. The Data Atlas is a first ever compilation of watershed specific population, housing, land use, and infrastructure data for the 12 communities located in the Lake George Park. The Data Atlas explores development potential (build out) of the entire watershed and presents this information in a highly readable graphic format. The project involved an intensive data collection effort, a robust GIS evaluation, interviews with stakeholders and a variety of public presentations across three counties. Community profiles were developed for the 11 towns and village that call Lake George home. The Data Atlas is used to spark dialogue about the lake’s future.
