2019 Planning & Zoning Forum Cancelled
EDC announced that the annual Southern Adirondack Planning and Zoning Forum scheduled for November 20th at Fort William Henry in Lake George has been cancelled. Earlier this past September another similar planning forum sponsored by Association of Towns and the New York State Planning Federation was held at the same facility in Lake George and it was determined many of the same attendees that have attended past EDC fall planning forums attended this recent AOT/NYPF event. EDC determined this would have negatively impacted this year’s EDC attendance for the conference and thus made it not a feasible event to underwrite. EDC plans to revisit the forum in Fall 2020 and will target mid September for the event.
EDC originated the forum in 2013 when EDC’s board and executive staff designed an event that would educate and deliver latest best practices and innovations to members of North Country planning and zoning boards as well as interested municipal officials. At that time there was no other competing events of it nature that delivered updated information and also qualified for NYS requirement of four hours of continuing education annually by planning and zoning board members. EDC thanks all past participants in the forum and looks forward to revisiting the event next fall.
