Comprehensive Planning

Comprehensive planning is an important step for all local governments.  It is the responsibility of the local government to maintain an accurate and up-to-date expression of the community's long-term goals.  A Comprehensive Plan can be used to guide capital improvement budgets (road costs, etc.), set up community-wide incentive programs (junk clean up, open space preservation, etc.), prepare for Marcellus gas drilling as well as to ensure that zoning and other land use tools remain up to-date and reflect the needs and desires of residents. 

STC will contract with communities to accomplish the comprehensive planning process.  Currently the Town of Corning and Town of Veteran are working with STC to update their comprehensive plans. 

The comprehensive planning process has many steps and ridged requirements set by New York State Department of State.  A comprehensive plan process will include:

  • A formally appointed committee of representatives from town government, employees and residents.
  • Usually around a two year process of regular committee meetings.
  • Information gathering (such as survey's and focus groups.
  • Mapping (of infrastructure, floodplains, mining operations, road networks, areas for preservation, ect.)
  • Narrative outlining the communities preferences for growth and stability in the future.
  • Public hearinings and comment period on draft comprehensive plan.
  • Adoption by the local government.
