Welcome to the City of Plattsburgh! We are nestled near the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York and on the shores of Lake Champlain. Our city offers its very own marina, beach and picnic area, recreation trails, boat launches, great fishing spots, quaint restaurants and shops.


The City of Plattsburgh has yearly celebrations such as Independence Day, the Mayor's Cup Festival and Regatta, the Battle of Plattsburgh Commemoration and various small events throughout the year. No matter the season, everyone can find something enjoyable to do indoors and out!



February 12, 2016 -  Mayor Calnon suspends enforcement of City's Sidewalk snow ordinance until extreme cold is over:


Temperatures and winds this weekend will result in dangerous conditions.  The extreme wind chill can result in frostbite within ten minutes of exposure.  Residents are cautioned to dress appropriately and to minimize the length of their exposure to these conditions.  At the same time, snow flurries may occur.  No significant accumulation of snow is predicted, and the Mayor of Plattsburgh is directing his staff to suspend enforcement of the City’s sidewalk snow ordinance until the extreme cold is over, currently predicted for Monday. “I do not want fear of a sidewalk snow ticket to result in any of our residents exposing themselves to the dangerous temperatures” Mayor Calnon said.  “No significant snow is expected, and public safety is our highest concern.” 


February 12, 2016 -  2016 Farmers Market season:


The Common Council of the City of Plattsburgh is evaluating the 2016 Farmers Market season and its current location on Durkee Street at their February 18, 2016 Work Session. 


The Council is assessing interest in alternate days of operation including other possible locations, and to determine if any other organizations would like to be considered as Farmers Market operators; for other locations in the city, for alternate days, or for the current location and days. 


Please submit a letter of intent or interest to the Mayor’s Office, 41 City Hall Place, Plattsburgh, NY  12901 by the end of business on Tuesday, February 16, 2016.
