Assemblyman Jones’ Legislation Designating Chazy Lake as Inland Waterway Passes Assembly

April 24, 2018

Assemblyman Billy Jones (D-Chateaugay) announced that legislation he introduced designating Chazy Lake as an inland waterway for the purposes of waterfront revitalization has passed the Assembly (A.8723-A).

“Chazy Lake is a prime example of the North Country’s true beauty,” Jones said. “This legislation further commits to protecting our area’s natural resources and helps boost the local economy by increasing property values.”

The bill allows surrounding municipalities to apply for state and federal funding to protect the lake as well as boost infrastructure, fishing and local recreational activities to areas along the lake. Chazy Lake is a popular fishing spot located in Clinton County that serves as an integral part of the Adirondacks, stretching roughly four miles at the foot of the Lyon, Johnson and Ellenburg Mountains.
