Lake George Data Atlas – Development Potential Estimates

July 18, 2017

Chazen completed preparation of 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 (buildout) 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 villages that call Lake George home and will be used for develop dialogue about the Lake’s future.
