At the September 8, 2020 Town of North Elba regular board meeting the following resolution was approved in regard to short-term rental permits: 

If a property owner has a prior history of renting multiple short-term rental units on the same property they shall have a 30 day window to apply for additional permits. Each unit requires a separate permit application and fee. The deadline for application is October 7, 2020. 

This applies only to properties within the Town of North Elba located outside the boundaries of the Village of Lake Placid.  

If this is applicable to you, please contact the Building Department for further assistance.
