3 local hamlets chosen for Hamlets 3

— The hamlets of Indian Lake, Blue Mountain Lake and Long Lake will be participating in phase 2 of the Hamlets 3 Workshops on Friday, Sept. 27 and Saturday, Sept. 28.

The workshops will be led by Roger Trancik and Bill Johnston of Urban Design Consultants from Ithaca.

Public presentations will be held in each community outlining Adirondack smart growth planning principles with specific references to individual projects within each community. Display panels, and a workshop agenda will engage community participants in this hands-on session. Workshop activities will include question and response interaction, idea sketching, and choosing among alternatives. The feedback and suggestions will be recorded and incorporated into the final document for the project to be posted online.

Proposed plans will include alternative design plans for downtown Indian Lake including extending the “T” intersection into a cross roads and a possible housing development and a new Adirondack Lake public beach. In Blue Mountain Lake, plans will showcase the potential for an Adirondack Museum Hotel and in Long Lake a plan for improvements to Jennings Park Pond including development at the site of the current Long Lake Highway Garage.

All plans will be presented for a community discussion and feedback.

Here is the meeting schedule:

•Friday, Sept. 27, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m., Indian Lake Town Hall

•Friday, Sept. 27, 3-6 p.m., Adirondack Museum, Blue Mountain Lake

•Saturday, Sept. 28, 9 a.m. - noon, Long Lake Central School
