Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Comprehensive Plan?

According the NYS Town Law § 272-a, it consists of materials, written or graphic, including maps, charts, studies, resolutions, reports, etc. It identifies goals objectives, principles, guidelines, policies, standards, devices and instruments. It provides for the immediate and long range protection, enhancement, growth and development of the town.

What does it study?

  • Location & intensity of land uses
  • Historic, natural & cultural resources
  • Socio-economics
  • Transportation
  • Housing
  • Recreation and parkland
  • Commercial & industrial uses
  • Public & private infrastructure
  • Health & emergency service facilities

 

How does it work?

All Town land use regulations must be in accordance with a Comprehensive Plan, once it is adopted. Land use regulations include zoning, subdivision, special use permit or site plan regulations that prescribe scale, location and intensity of development.

What will it tell us?

  • Where we've been
  • Where we are
  • Where we want to go
  • How to get there

 

Have there been other plans?

The first Town of Clarkstown Development Plan was created in 1966. In 1999 the Clarkstown Comprehensive Plan was updated. In 2006 the Clarkstown Town Board established a "Special Board," composed of members of various town boards and professional staff, to prepare the current Town Comprehensive Plan.

What is so special about this one?

It's modeled after an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), so when it comes to studying and establishing goals for land use development, it's the most Comprehensive Comprehensive Plan there is.
