About the LWRP
What is the Northville Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP?)
The village of Northville is developing a Local Waterfront Revitalization Program to establish community goals and strategies for future development along Northville Lake and Great Sacandaga Lake. The LWRP will focus on developing the village's waterfront resources in a sustainable manner, creating recreational opportunities, preserving historic architecture and redevelopment of underutilized lands in downtown Northville.
An LWRP is a comprehensive land and water use program developed by local municipalities under the authorization of the NYS Waterfront Revitalization of Coastal Areas and Inland Waterways Act.
The Program defines a vision for a community’s waterfront, identifies specific projects and policies to encourage environmental protections, foster economic development, and improve public access to the waterfront, and outlines implementation techniques to achieve that vision.
