Downtown Revitalization Initiative Projects

Village of Saranac Lake
Saranac Lake, NY

EDR was awarded the Downtown Revitalization Initiative Projects to support the Village of Saranac Lake in advancing the design, bidding, and construction.   The project is funded by a grant from the NYS Department of State. The project goal includes creating a series of linked gateway parks, increasing connectivity between Downtown destinations, and enhancing the Church Street and Woodruff Street streetscapes and the riverwalk extension.

Together, these projects will continue the success of this regional downtown destination anchored with cultural and recreational experiences as well as numerous entertainment and restaurant options, supported by creative local entrepreneurs and connected by a network of treelined streets, the Riverwalk, and public spaces that reflect what is unique about downtown Saranac Lake.

EDR provided site planning, site-civil engineering, landscape architecture design, and environmental consulting services for the project. EDR’s design responsibilities included design of pedestrian patterns, streetscape enhancements, site furniture, park design, street tree replacements, new street design, planting design, site grading, sanitary lateral design, storm sewers and stormwater management.
