Town of Lysander Comprehensive Land Use Plan    

Introduction   The purpose of this Comprehensive Land Use Plan (CLUP) is to provide the Town of Lysander with a sound plan for land use for at least the next 5 years. It is understood that such plans should look farther into the future and this plan does so where possible. However; one major constraint is Wastewater Treatment capabilities will be a limiting factor for at least the next 3 years. The previous plan was completed in 1991 the only revision was made in 2007 adding a very complex program to protect farm land. This addition known as “Transfer of Development Rights” (TDR) affected the AR-40 Districts in the Town where certain areas called “sending areas” were selected to be protected from development while other areas called “receiving areas” were selected to allow development. The goal was to redirect development in such a way as to retain prime farm land while at the same time allowing development in other regions of the Town, all of which continue to be in the AR-40 Districts. A developer wishing to build in a “receiving area” would be required to pay an owner of property in a “sending area” for the right to build in the “receiving area”. Since the TDR was put in place no such transactions have taken place. This 2015 CLUP has been assembled to best meet the town’s desire to encourage sustainable residential, industrial and commercial development in a manner consistent with the retention of all the Town’s outstanding character
