Mission Statement

The Lake Champlain-Lake George Regional Planning Board was created in 1967 as a development organization operating in New York State under Article 12-B, Section 239h of the General Municipal Law. Our mission is to promote sustainable economic development that strengthens our communities, provides quality jobs and preserves the unique natural, historical and cultural characteristics of the region.
