Q: What is a grandfathered structure?
A: A structure that lawfully existed at the time a law, rule or regulation was enacted into law. It had to be there when the law was made.
Q: The structure had to be there when the law was made? My parents tore down the old camp that was right on the water in the 1950’s, can it be replaced now?
A: Sorry, no. The APA was created in 1973 and the Town of Webb Zoning was adopted in 1965. If the structure was removed in 1950, it did not exist when the new regulations were enacted. However, a boathouse, without habitable space, may be able to be built. Continue reading

Volunteers from Old Forge, Eagle Bay, Big Moose, Inlet, Raquette Lake, Long Lake, Indian Lake and Speculator scoured their respective towns on Wednesday, May 6 to pick up trash during the annual Community Pride Day.
School-aged children were released from some of their classes to participate in the regional beautification initiative, with Town of Webb students competing against each other to see which class could collect the largest amount of garbage, in weight. (The sixth grade class was the winner.)
Long Lake reportedly picked up between 1,500 and 1,800 pounds of garbage, which included lots of metal pipes. Volunteers up that way said the most common items picked up, besides bottles, were foam, lottery tickets and cigarette butts.
