About the Dryden 2045 Comprehensive Plan Update
In April of 2019, the Town of Dryden Town Board requested that the Planning Board manage a general update to the Town Comprehensive Plan.
The Town Planning Board is serving as the Steering Committee for the project.
Comprehensive planning is a process that documents community goals and aspirations in terms of community development.
The result is called a comprehensive plan and both expresses and regulates public policies on land use, housing, recreation, transportation, and public infrastructure such as utilities.
Planning includes a thorough analysis and inventory of current data showing land development trends and issues, community resources, and public needs.
Community residents participate in and guide the process through interviews, meetings, workshops, surveys and hearings.
Comprehensive plans guide future growth for municipalities and inform ordinances such as zoning and subdivision codes.
