About

 

The Village of Saranac Lake  Building and Planning Department provides effective and efficient administration of laws relating to planning, zoning, fire safety, and prevention, building construction and other areas the Village Board may deem appropriate. The Building and Planning Department should be contacted prior to starting any project that effects one of the areas noted above.

 

The Building and Planning Department is primarily responsible for maintaining the Saranac Lake Development Code and the NYS Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code in order to:

 

  • Promote public health and safety
  • Create a functional community that is beautiful, healthy, and efficient
  • Support economic development

 

As many projects require approvals from both the VSL Development Code and the NYS Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code, the Development Code Administrator will review applications for most building permits prior to the review by the Code Enforcement Officer.

Location: 39 Main Street Saranac Lake, NY

Hours of Operation: 7:30am-4:30pm Monday through Friday
