Cortlandt, NY Comprehensive Plan

Cortlandt
Services Required:
The Turner Miller Group was retained in 2004 by the Town of Cortlandt, New York to assist in the preparation of a Comprehensive Plan update for the unincorporated area of the Town.
 
The Town of Cortlandt is a rural/suburban community located in Northern Westchester County along the Hudson River, approximately 45 miles north of New York City.
 
The policies for the Plan update were amended to reflect maturation of the community that has historically dealt with the impacts associated with new suburban growth. The new policies reflect issues associated within infill residential development and retrofit of older commercial corridors. The Plan also incorporated policies from other major ongoing planning projects including the Croton Watershed Plan and the Sustainable Development Project.
 
In conjunction with the plan update, TMG prepared a Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS) to assess the environmental Impacts associated with the revised planning policies and a detailed housing plan that identified strategies for achieving the development of entry level affordable housing in the Town.
