§ 212-1 Declaration of policy.

A. 
In order to promote the health, safety, morals and general welfare of the community; to lessen congestion in the streets; to secure safety from fire, panic and other dangers; to provide adequate light and air; to prevent overuse of land; to avoid undue concentration of population; and to facilitate the adequate provision of transportation, water, sewerage, schools, parks and other public requirements, under and pursuant to Chapter 62, Articles 9 and 16, of the Consolidated Laws of New York State, the size of buildings and other structures, the percentage of lots that may be occupied, the size of yards, the density of population, and the use of buildings, structures and land for trade, industry, residence or other purposes are hereby restricted and regulated as hereinafter provided.
B. 
Further, these restrictions and regulations are provided in order to preserve, foster and enhance the native beauty and rural character of one of the most picturesque and charming communities in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. Ulysses is a community well-known for its fine vistas of farmland, hills and Cayuga Lake. As it presently contains more historic homes within its borders than any other township in the county, this chapter shall provide appropriate controls over the use of buildings, structures and land.
