Welcome To The Town of Ticonderoga
The Town of Ticonderoga is located at the confluence of Lake George and Lake Champlain in the southeastern corner of Essex County, New York. Ticonderoga is entirely located within the Adirondack Park and nearly one-third of its land area is part of the State Forest Preserve.
A year-round community of approximately 4,789 (2020 Census) residents with summer residents increasing the population substantially during the summer and fall months, Ticonderoga is a destination for tourists who love the lakes, mountains, historic landmarks, and a rich education in 18th century history. Ticonderoga’s significant military role in our nation’s early history remains a vital component of the community, with the Fort Ticonderoga historic landmark drawing around 100,000 visitors annually.

EMS CRISIS – INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
There is a lot of information out there…some factual…some not. The following is a list of information provided by EMS providers in our area as well as some information from a recent EMS workshop sponsored by the Town of Ticonderoga. EMS is like any other emergency service such as law enforcement and fire protection…YOU need it when YOU need it. These services do not come without a cost. Each is a profession with professionally trained and certified providers. Each has specified equipment with which they provide those services. Equipment, training, maintenance, capital outlay, salary…all of these are related expenses. There are ways to fund these costs via an EMS District or through town budget appropriation. You are encouraged to learn the specifics about these methods to make an informed decision.

Ticonderoga RECEIVES the NYS Downtown Revitalization Initiative
Help Shape Our Community’s Future
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
The York State Secretary of State, Robert J. Rodriguez, announced on January 23, 2023 that Ticonderoga received the Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) for the North Country Region. This provides $10 million dollars to our community to specifically address our downtown corridor. DRI is meant to aid communities in their efforts to create vibrant centers for community members and visitors alike. This is an amazing and historic opportunity for Ticonderoga and our surrounding communities to significantly boost our current efforts to reduce decades of economic decline. The Town of Ticonderoga is very thankful to Governor Hochul and New York State for this life-changing opportunity and looks forward to working with the State on this epic journey to revitalization.
HOW CAN THIS MONEY BE USED?
The DRI application process required the Town to define a Downtown Corridor as this is a Downtown Revitalization Initiative award. The DRI Committee identified this corridor (see map below) which is an area lying between mid-Bicentennial Park area to the Agway intersection. Specific projects were identified by you and the DRI Committee during the pre-application phase which lie within that defined Downtown Corridor. NYS will provide additional details on how this works in the near future. Watch the DRI Website (see link below) for more details.
WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP?
New York State will contact the Town approximately 2 weeks following the award announcement. That will begin the next phase of the process. This is not an overnight process. Please be patient. The public will once again be involved in this process so watch this and other social media locations for news and information.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Standby for more details. NYS will begin working with Ticonderoga in the next few weeks to describe the process going forward. We will formalize our public and private projects. The committee will continue to need your ideas for priorities and what you envision for your Downtown Ticonderoga! We shared these ideas with you before the application process via in-person and virtual meetings so expect the same to continue into the future. See the link to the DRI Website below for news and information.
HOW DO YOU FIND OUT MORE ABOUT DRI & THE LATEST NEWS?
Please take some time to review our DRI Website (link on left). Remember, this is YOUR opportunity to find the latest developments and news and learn about the projects in work to make Ticonderoga a vibrant place to live, work, and visit as you envision it…a place that provides opportunity for investment and services and activities for residents.
YOU will have the continued opportunity to share your ideas and shape the Ticonderoga downtown for decades to come. An opportunity like this is rare and we value your thoughts on the Ticonderoga of the future.
This is your community and your future!
IMPORTANT TICONDEROGA DOWNTOWN REVITALIZATION INITIATIVE INFORMATION!
