Mixed-Use Zoning Districts
New Mixed-Use Zoning Districts consisting of both Infill Districts and Retrofit Districts were crafted for the commercial and mixed-use centers identified in the Comprehensive Plan to encourage a mix of land uses that combine to make working, shopping, recreation, and living more convenient. The new Mixed-Use Districts have been added as a section of the Zoning Code (Chapter 203), and are available for use in in the commercial and mixed-use centers. They are currently not mapped as part of the overall Town zoning map.
These new Mixed-Use Zoning Districts were presented at a public hearing before the Town Board on July 22, 2019 and were adopted by the Town Board at their meeting on September 3, 2019.
