What is the Schroon Lake Steering Committee?

What is the Schroon Lake Steering Committee?

When the Schroon Lake Watershed Management Plan was published in 2010, the Schroon Lake Steering Committee was formed as the vehicle for monitoring progress in implementing the Plan’s recommendations.

The Steering Committee consists of representatives of the towns surrounding Schroon Lake (Schroon, Chester and Horicon), ESSLA, and the Schroon Lake Association. ESSLA members on the Steering Committee representing either a town or a lake association are Rich Nawrot and Eric Bright (co-chairs), Bill McGhie, Gary Muller and Ross Schoembs.

Beth Gilles, Executive Director of the Lake Champlain-Lake George Regional Planning Board, is the Steering Committee’s subject matter expert and consultant. Beth’s involvement is funded by her agency through the DEC with a grant under the Clean Water Act.

Paradox Lake Association, Schroon Lake Park District, Warren and Essex Counties Soil and Water Conservation Districts, the Warren County Planning Department, and private citizens are also active participants.

In future blog posts, we will begin examining the Steering Committee’s priorities and recommendations for Schroon Lake.
