25 Oct Residents invited to participate in Destination Management Plan

Lake Placid, NY — Community members are invited to participate in a community call to provide feedback on proposed strategies being developed for the region’s Destination Management Plan. Two, one-hour sessions will be held, one on November 1 at 8 a.m. and one on November 3 at 5:30 p.m. Everyone is encouraged to join one of the calls.

The Destination Management Plan will provide a 10-year road map that aligns the priorities of government, economic development, community organizations, and residents to balance the tourism industry with community needs.

Greg Oates, Senior Vice President of Innovation with MMGY NextFactor, a consulting firm specializing in travel and tourism, will be conducting the community calls. 

“We’ve been engaging community leaders, business owners, residents, and a variety of other organizations for the last nine months to understand how the tourism industry can contribute to the quality of life for residents, and how to best diversify the economy,” said Oates. “The upcoming community calls provide a chance for all residents to provide input on the development of the Destination Management Plan.”

For any residents who might not be able to attend the virtual session, Oates said he welcomes any input directly. He can be reached at
