The Planning and Zoning Department serves the community by providing current and long-range planning activities as well as administration of all local land use laws. Current planning activities include project reviews to enforce zoning and subdivision regulations on project proposals including environmental reviews under SEQRA. Long-range planning activities include comprehensive plan updates including policy and local law implementation.
The planning office works toward providing a more livable environment for all who work, live, and visit the Town of Clarence. The Town has adopted a comprehensive land use plan in August of 2001 that guides the land use decisions on projects throughout our Town. Also, new subdivision and zoning laws were adopted in 2005 that reinforce the community’s goals stated in the comprehensive plan.
We welcome all those interested in a proposed project or who wish to discuss their vision of the Town of Clarence to stop in our office to see if there is a better way to serve the interests of the Town.
