Ticonderoga Land Use Draft:
Town of Ticonderoga, NY - 2011:
The resulting Land Use and Development Code features standards for the town's commercial areas to require higher quality, better designed development with design guidelines for large buildings, landscaping, signs, lighting, etc. In downtown, the code will ensure that new development is compatible with traditional downtown character (multi-story buildings built at the edge of the sidewalk, no parking lots in front, no residential on the first floor, etc.). The town's zoning map was redrawn in its entirety to establish new districts that largely follow property lines and are more similar to the Adirondack Park Agency Land Use Classes. See links below.
Three final changes were made to the draft by the committee in August:
The maximum residential density within the Downtown Business District was deleted. There would be no limitation on the number of upper floor residential units allowed within the downtown buildings.
A provision was added to the Downtown Business District to limit the period of time (>90 days) a nonconforming ground-floor residential unit can remain unoccupied before the residential use is deemed discontinued and the unit could not be used as a residence again.
The language related to fences within the Shoreline Residential District was deleted from 3.C|01.02.04. Fences in that district will be treated the same as fences within other districts outside the downtown area.
Town of Ticonderoga, NY - 2006
Brandy Saxton facilitated a two-year planning process with an ad hoc committee resulting in a Comprehensive Plan focused on revitalizing the town’s hamlet, supporting tourism efforts and promoting the town’s role as a regional center. The plan sets forth a strategy for working with the Adirondack Park Agency on an Approved Land Use Plan for the town.
