In the spring of 2011, Lake Champlain reached record high levels and historic flooding occurred.  In Plattsburgh, a low-income housing complex along the lakeshore was condemned.  On Monday, the Plattsburgh City Planning Board approved plans to redevelop the 3-point-3 acre property.

The Lake Champlain Basin Program has released a new report assessing flood resilience and offering recommendations and management strategies that could prevent major flooding of the kind that occurred in 2011.
