05 Apr Upgrades in the works for ROOST visitor centers
The upgrades at the 121 Park Street location in Tupper Lake are mostly finished, with the exception of minor touches. The office houses ROOST staff, the Tupper Lake Information Center, and the Tupper Lake Chamber of Commerce.

The project was completed thanks to a 2015 DEC Smart Growth Grant that was awarded to the Town of Tupper Lake. The grant application titled “Improving 21st Century Curb Appeal” focused on improving traveler’s first impressions of Tupper Lake.
At the ROOST office in Malone, renovations were recently completed including the repair and painting of the ceilings and walls and new light fixtures. New flooring is in the process of being installed in the days to come.
The North Elba Town Hall, home of ROOST Saranac Lake staff, Saranac Lake Chamber of Commerce, and visitor information center, is amidst a spring facelift. This historic 1927 building located at 193 River Street is one of the few structures in Greek Revival style architecture in all of the Adirondacks.
Updates include new fixtures, flooring, plumbing and a coat of paint in the downstairs, as well as minor cosmetic repairs in the lobby that houses brochure racks, Winter Carnival memorabilia, and the work of local artists. All work will be done before summer. The Town of North Elba is funding the project.
