The Penfield Town Board commenced work on the town’s 2020 Comprehensive Plan Update at its July 12, 2017 work session. At that meeting, the board and town staff reviewed and accepted a draft timeline outlining milestones of the project that begins July 2017 and is expected to conclude in June 2019.
The Town of Penfield updates its Comprehensive Plan about every 10 years. The Town is currently working with the 2010 Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan functions as the legal foundation for all land use decisions, defines the community’s vision, provides guidelines for development, and establishes goals and objectives for the next 10 to 15 years.
Topics for review and update in 2020 include, but are not limited to, residential, recreation, and commercial property use; the status of a new Mixed Use District; infrastructure; multi-modal connectivity; sustainability; again in place for elders; medical services; schools, rezoning opportunities; and new zoning districts.
The 2020 Comprehensive Plan Update process is being led by town staff with a committee of resident volunteers. Assistance and input from experts and consultants will be provided as needed for topics such as traffic, drainage, sanitary sewers, planning, and other infrastructure and environmental matters.
Milestones and public participation opportunities will be communicated throughout the process on this project page.
