Planning Approvals

The Planning Department accepts site plan, subdivision, conditional use permit and variance requests. Applicants submitting to the Planning Department will need to provide associated forms and fees prior to consideration. Please note that only a complete package will be accepted for review.  At the outset, the Zoning Administrator will determine whether the proposal: 

  • meets Town Zoning Code;
  • requires SEQR review;
  • must be sent to the County Planning Department for consideration;
  • fits within the Comprehensive Plan or other guiding study/plan document; and 
  • starts the application review process with the PZC, Town Board or GECC.

The approval process can take several months depending on the specifics. The Zoning Administrator can answer questions regarding procedural and substantive issues. Please call (518)688-1218 X7 with any questions.
