Navigation Rules adopted by the SOA governed navigation of the Lake from 1910 through 1923. In 1924, at the request of the Association, the State Legislature passed a law covering navigation on the Lake. In 1941, the State Legislature passed a State Navigation Law which repealed all local laws governing navigation in the State. That law, while more stringent in some respects, neglected certain restrictions which were found from experience to be necessary for safety on the Lake. To address this concern, the SOA requested that the Board of Supervisors of Essex County establish the Lake Placid Vessel Regulation Zone, which was agreed to on August 10, 1942 and amended most recently in 1989. The Town of North Elba annually appoints a constable with the authority to enforce the navigation rules and the New York State Navigation Law.
