Westchester Creates New Municipal Planning Tool

The Westchester County Planning Department has posted a new Web Page which it hopes will be a planning tool for local communities and assist in regional planning. The site states: “[w]hether you are a planner or a concerned resident, you will find tools on these web pages that assist in understanding your community, defining its character and envisioning the future.”

The site (http://www.westchestergov.com/w2025.htm) contains links to all 43 Westchester municipalities and data on each municipality, with the intention that additional information will be added. Claimed to be the first site of its kind in the State of New York, it will be interesting to see if it is utilized and its impact on planning in the County.
