ATTENTION LAKE LUZERNE RESIDENTS:
Resolution 87 of 2021 authorizes the town to issue an RFP/RFQ to update the Town Comprehensive Plan. The Lake Luzerne Town Board has determined it to be in the community’s best interest to create a “Town Advisory Committee” (TAC), consisting of 8-15 residents, to update the Town Comprehensive Plan by working with an RFP/RFQ for presentation, approval, and adoption by the Town Board of Lake Luzerne. If interested in being a member of the TAC, please contact Cynthia Sherwood, Town Clerk at (518) 696-2711 x1 or email at [email protected].
WARREN COUNTY & EDC REOPEN BROADBAND SURVEY | JUNE 14TH, 2021
The online broadband survey that was conducted by Warren County and EDC Warren County, the county’s economic development organization, has been reopened temporarily to give residents and businesses in Lake Luzerne the opportunity to participate in the event they were unable to do so in early 2021 when the survey was conducted. Anyone wishing to participate can visit www.warrencountybroadband.org and complete the online survey. If participants are unable to connect to, or do not have, an internet connection, they can take the survey by cellphone or may call EDC Warren County at (518) 761-6007, where a representative will assist by taking the survey verbally over the phone on their behalf. Reliable broadband with capability is more important than ever. COVID-19 proved that learning, telehealth, and the ability to work from anywhere is not a luxury, but a necessity. This broadband survey is important, even if you have an existing service. Respondents can give insight to how reliable and cost-effective a service they are receiving is. The survey is a vital piece in establishing areas that may be suitable for highly anticipated NYS and federal programs forthcoming as a result of recovering funding passed by the US Congress in early 2021.
STREET LIGHTS – In an effort to keep all street lights working, we are asking that if you see a light that is not on, please get the numbers off the pole and call the Town Hall with the numbers and location, so a repair request can be made to National Grid. The number to call is 518-696-2711, ext 2.

Come to Lake Luzerne to enjoy a confluence of waters. Here, the Hudson River squeezes into a narrow gorge, tumbling over the dramatic Rockwell Falls. Water from the Great Sacandaga Reservoir joins the river in a flurry of white water. Further downstream, the river widens into “The Bay,” a stretch of water broad enough for water skiing. For those who seek quiet water, a chain of four beautiful lakes offer fishing, camping and boating with two public swimming beaches on Lake Luzerne itself. Lake Luzerne has catered to visitors since President Grant came here for rest and recreation after the Civil War. The grand old hotels of that day have given way to modern inns and restaurants while new tennis and basketball courts, miniature golf and three local history museums, along with summer concerts and craft shows, offer a variety of family fun. Two riverside parks flank the downtown area.
Lake Luzerne is the home of a worldwide renowned music camp. In winter, snowmobilers can ride over 200 miles of forest trails. Signs for the “Dude Ranch Trail” hearken back to the days after World War II, when the old logging camps found new life as Dude Ranches. The Rodeo is still going strong after more than 60 years and several stables along Route 9N still offer horseback riding.
