TOWN OF UNION COMPREHENSIVE PLAN

Welcome to the Town of Union website for the comprehensive planning process! This website will be the center for all information regarding Union’s Comprehensive Plan including public engagement and outreach, draft plan elements, meeting notes and reports, and much more. Visit this website to stay up to date on the latest information. We want YOU to be INVOLVED in the planning process!

WHAT IS A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN?

A Comprehensive Plan is “an expression of a municipality’s goals and recommended actions to achieve those goals; a document which focuses on intermediate and long-term protection, enhancement, growth and development of a municipality; an outline for orderly growth, providing continued guidance for decision making…” - NYS Statute

COMPREHENSIVE PLANNING FOR SMART GROWTH

The Town of Union Comprehensive Plan is funded by the New York State Smart Growth Program  “Smart Growth” is a concept that covers a range of community development, planning, and economic development principles with the goal of making communities more livable, economically efficient, environmentally sustainable, and overall more resilient.


WHY PLAN?
 The Town of Union Comprehensive Plan will be the foundation from which the community can work together to achieve its vision over the next 15-20 years. Union’s most recent comprehensive plan  was written in 2010, and while many of the themes in the prior plan remain relevant today, an updated plan is needed to ensure Union has a unified vision and action plan for the future.

GET INVOLVED

The Town of Union is committed to a community-driven planning process. There will be multiple opportunities for the public to get involved including sharing your experiences living in Union (all part of the town), shaping planning priorities and action items, and providing feedback on the draft plan:

  • Public Workshops
  • A Community Survey
  • Represent your business or organization in a focus group​​

We will post information regarding public engagement opportunities on this website and on the Town of Union and Village of Endicott social media.
