The Danby Planning & Zoning Office coordinates town planning and development review processes as overseen by the Town Board, Planning Board, Board of Zoning Appeals, and the Conservation Advisory Council. Town Planning is generally broad and includes such topics as environmental protection, stormwater management, comprehensive planning, mapping, and coordination with other planning agencies. Development review includes accepting, review and processing applications for subdivisions, site plans, special use permits and other land use requests; coordinating with the Planning Board, Board of Zoning Appeals and Conservation Advisory Council on agendas; review of pending development applications and appeals; and overall assistance and administration for the work of these boards. The Planning & Zoning Office also coordinates with the Building and Code Enforcement Office regarding consideration of zoning compliance for building permits, including such elements as district use parameters, property line setbacks and structure locations; this work may also include assistance with efforts to attain zoning and subdivision compliance and related code issues.
