Public hearing on zoning law amendments set for 6 p.m. Thursday Dec. 12
Touring motorcyclists wait at a stoplight in downtown Lake George during a prior year’s Americade event which annually attracts tens of thousands of motorcyclists. The Lake George Town Board is considering a zoning amendment which is designed to encourage more such festivals by permitting festival organizers and allowing individual vendors to sell merchandise and services under the legal umbrella, rather than paying a $500 transient vendor fee which is now assessed to every vendor under existing town law. Local officials say that large events like Americade are important to retain in Warren County — a research study conducted several years ago indicated that Americade pumps about $40 million into the local economy per year.
