Legislators Hear Presentation on Recommended Comprehensive Plan Update

Tuesday, October 15, 2019

The Legislature held a public hearing to invite comments on proposed amendments to the Tompkins County Comprehensive Plan, as a result of its five-year review.  While there were no comments at the public hearing, the Legislature heard presentations on the five-year review from the Department of Planning and Sustainability, prior to anticipated action at the Legislature’s next meeting November 7. 

The recommended Comprehensive Plan update would incorporate a new list of 18 action items between now and the next full update of the Plan, anticipated by 2025.  The new action items relate to such elements as providing ongoing assistance to municipalities in implementing projects promoting policies of the Comprehensive Plan or other County strategies; the Route 13 Corridor Study; continued and expanded Housing Funding; establishing a countywide Harmful Algal Blooms strategy; conducting Greenhouse Gas Emissions inventories for the community and County government operations; and undertaking an inventory and analysis of County facilities and fleet to determine a financially sound path to net-zero emissions.
