Town of Clarkstown to Receive Pace Land Use Law Center Founders Award

(New City, NY) – Supervisor Alex Gromack is proud to announce the Town of Clarkstown will receive the Pace Land Use Law Center’s Founders Award.  The Theodore W. Kheel Center on the Resolution of Environmental Interest Disputes will present the award at their 10th Annual Conference on land use and sustainable development on December 2nd. 

The award is given to individuals and municipalities that have worked collaboratively with their community and have reinvented democracy to make change happen in their communities. According to the Land Use Law Center’s website, “The spirit in which the Town of Clarkstown approached and implemented its Comprehensive Plan is the type of community planning that we would like to highlight and celebrate”.

Clarkstown set its sights on achieving the Town’s long term planning needs, modeling its Comprehensive Plan after an Environmental Impact Statement. This unique grassroots approach maximizes planning resources, and through the use of GIS technology, the Town will be better able to forecast potential environmental and biodiversity issues.

The development of Clarktown’s Comprehensive Plan included important community involvement, led by the Comprehensive Plan Special Board. Adopted in 2009, the Final Comprehensive Plan employs important techniques that the Planning Board acquired through the LULA training program, which will improve the quality of life in the community.

“Our Comprehensive Plan is a product of the residents of Clarkstown and, through its emphasis on sustainable development and smart growth strategies, we will continue to grow and respond to the challenges and opportunities of the future,” said Clarkstown Supervisor Alex Gromack. “We are honored to be recognized for our hard work and efforts in establishing and implementing the Town’s Comprehensive Plan.”
