A. 
Purpose.
(1) 
It is hereby found and declared that:
(a) 
The floodway areas of the Town of Chili are subject to periodic inundation which results in loss of life and property, health and safety hazards, disruption of commerce and governmental services, extraordinary public expenditure for flood protection and relief and impairment of the tax base, all of which adversely affect the public health, safety and general welfare.
(b) 
Flood losses are caused by the cumulative effect of obstructions in areas of special flood hazard which increase flood heights and velocities. Structures that are inadequately placed in the floodway also contribute to the flood loss by changing direction of flow or, when inadequately anchored, damaging uses downstream.
(c) 
The floodway has been determined to be an extremely hazardous area due to the velocity of floodwaters which carry debris, potential projectiles and erosion potential.
(2) 
It is the purpose of this section to promote the public health, safety and general welfare and to minimize public and private losses due to flood conditions in specific areas by provisions designed:
(a) 
To protect human life and health.
(b) 
To minimize expenditure of public money for costly flood control projects.
(c) 
To minimize the need for rescue and relief efforts associated with flooding and generally undertaken at the expense of the general public.
(d) 
To minimize prolonged business interruptions.
(e) 
To minimize damage to public facilities and utilities, such as water and gas mains, electric, telephone and sewer lines, streets and bridges located in floodway areas.
(f) 
To ensure that potential buyers are notified that property is in floodway areas.
(g) 
To ensure that those who occupy the areas of special flood hazard assume responsibility for their actions.
(3) 
In addition, these regulations shall be used to fulfill the requirements of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Federal Insurance Administration's National Flood Insurance Program for certification in that program.
B. 
Delineation of the Floodway District. There is hereby established an FW District to accomplish the purpose of this section. The boundaries of the FW District are delineated more specifically on the Zoning Map which is part of this chapter. The delineation of the FW District is based upon the likelihood of constant and frequent flooding and is intended to protect the floodway and to ensure that the floodway can function properly to carry away floodwaters as efficiently as possible. The delineation of this zone shall be considered to be in compliance with the Federal Insurance Administration's Flood Insurance Study for the Town of Chili, effective date August 28, 2008, and accompanying maps (FIRM and FBFM) on file in the Code Enforcement Officer's office. In the event that there is a discrepancy, the more stringent provisions shall prevail. This chapter does not imply that areas outside the floodway zone boundaries or land uses permitted within such district will be free from flooding or flood damages.
[Amended 12-3-2008 by L.L. No. 4-2008]
C. 
Permitted uses. The following uses are permitted outright:

A. 
Purpose.
(1) 
It is hereby found and declared that:
(a) 
The floodplain areas of the Town of Chili are subject to periodic inundation which results in loss of life and property, health and safety hazards, disruption of commerce and governmental services, extraordinary public expenditures for flood protection and relief and impairment of the tax base, all of which adversely affect the public health, safety and general welfare.
(b) 
Flood losses are caused by the cumulative effect of obstructions in areas of special flood hazard which increase flood heights and velocities and, when inadequately anchored, damage uses in other areas. Uses that are inadequately floodproofed, elevated or otherwise protected from flood damage also contribute to the flood loss.
(2) 
It is, therefore, the purpose of this section to promote the public health, safety and general welfare and to minimize public and private losses due to flood conditions in specific areas by provisions designed:
(a) 
To protect human life and health.
(b) 
To minimize expenditure of public money for costly flood control projects.
(c) 
To minimize the need for rescue and relief efforts associated with flooding and generally undertaken at the expense of the general public.
(d) 
To minimize prolonged business interruptions.
(e) 
To minimize damage to public facilities and utilities such as water and gas mains, electric, telephone and sewer lines, streets and bridges located in areas of special flood hazard.
(f) 
To help maintain a stable tax base by providing for the second use and development of areas of special flood hazard so as to minimize future flood-blight areas.
(g) 
To ensure that potential buyers are notified that property is in an area of special flood hazard.
(h) 
To ensure that those who occupy the areas of special flood hazard assume responsibility for their actions.
(3) 
In addition, these regulations shall be used to fulfill the requirements of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Federal Insurance Administration's National Flood Insurance Program for certification in that program.
B. 
Delineation of the Floodplain Overlay District.
(1) 
There is hereby established an FPO District to accomplish the purpose of this section. The boundaries of the FPO District are delineated more specifically on the Zoning Map which is part of this chapter and is considered to be the same as the limits of the one-hundred-year floodplain as delineated by the final Federal Insurance Administration's Flood Insurance Study for the Town of Chili, effective date August 28, 2008, as shown on the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) and the Flood Boundary and Floodway Maps (FBFM) for Black Creek and the Genesee River and by the Corps of Engineers' Floodplain Information for Little Black Creek. In the event that there is a discrepancy, the more stringent provisions shall prevail.
[Amended 12-3-2008 by L.L. No. 4-2008]
(2) 
The FPO District provides regulations to areas not covered in the FW Floodway District, § 500-9. The FPO District is subject to inundation by standing water from a one-hundred-year flood, hereinafter referred to as the base flood. Larger floods may occur on rare occasions, the flood heights may be increased by man-made or natural causes such as ice jams and bridge openings restricted by debris, and areas within these boundaries may flood to lesser degrees more often. This chapter does not imply that areas outside the overlay boundaries or land use permitted within such districts will be free from flooding or flood damages.
(3) 
The provisions of this overlay district are intended to be supplementary controls over land use in addition to the controls in the mapped primary zoning districts and shall be used in combination with such districts.
C. 
Areas to which this section applies. All development and lands located within the boundaries of the FPO District are subject to the regulations of this overlay district.
D.

[Added 6-11-1994 by L.L. No. 4-1994]
A. 
Purpose. The purpose of the Rural Agricultural Overlay District (RAO-20) District is to permit the development of lots of record, platted years ago before the enactment of zoning, that are now served by public water and sewer, and that under current zoning has resulted in frequent and sizable dimensional variance requests to develop existing lots of record. Furthermore, it is because of these existing conditions and the Town of Chili's desire to permit development consistent with the land use recommendations contained in the adopted Town of Chili Comprehensive Plan -- 2010[1] that these regulations are enacted. It is further the purpose of these regulations to control development of this area which contains this unique combination of circumstances and which is located in an area of the Town which otherwise is and should remain rural and in continued agricultural use.
[1]
Editor's Note: The Comprehensive Plan is on file in the office of the Town Clerk.
B.

A. 
Purpose. It is the purpose of this PUD Planned Unit Development District to provide flexible land use and design regulations through the use of performance criteria so that small-to-large scale neighborhoods or portions thereof may be developed within the Town that incorporate a variety of residential types and nonresidential uses and contain both individual building sites and common property which are planned and developed as a unit. Where planned unit development is deemed appropriate through the rezoning of land to a PUD District by the Town Board, the set of use and dimensional specifications elsewhere in this chapter are herein replaced by an approval process in which an approved plan becomes the basis for continuing land use controls. The PUD District shall be applicable to any area of the Town where the applicant can demonstrate that the characteristics of his holdings will meet the objectives of this district.
B. 
Permitted uses. The following uses and their accessory or associated uses are permitted outright:
(1) 
All residential types. In developing a balanced community the use of a variety of housing types shall be deemed most in keeping with this district.
(2) 
Commercial, service and other nonresidential uses. These are to be scaled primarily to serve the residents of the planned unit development.
C. 
Dimensional requirements. The minimum area required to qualify for a planned unit development shall be 50 contiguous acres of land. Where the applicant can demonstrate that the characteristics of his holdings will meet the objectives of this district, the Planning Board may consider projects with less acreage.
D. 
Special provisions applying to the PUD Planned Unit Development District.
(1) 
In order to carry out the purposes of this district, a planned unit development shall achieve the following objectives:
(a) 
A maximum choice in the types of environment, occupancy, tenure, types of housing, lot sizes and community facilities available to existing and potential Town residents at all economic levels.
(b) 
More usable open space and recreation areas.
(c) 
More convenience in location of accessory commercial and service areas.
(d) 
The preservation of trees, outstanding natural topography and geologic features and prevention of soil erosion.
(e) 
A creative use of land and related physical development which allows an orderly transition of land from rural to urban uses.
(f) 
An efficient use of land resulting in smaller networks of utilities and streets and, thereby, lower housing costs.
(g) 
A development pattern in harmony with the objectives of the Comprehensive Plan.
(h) 
A more desirable environment than would be possible through the strict application of other provisions of this chapter.
(2) 
The tract of land for a project may be owned, leased or controlled either by a single person, corporation or by a group of individuals or corporations. An application must be filed by the owner or jointly by owners of all property included in a project. In the case of multiple ownership, the approved plan shall be binding on all owners.
(3) 
Before the consideration of any rezoning of property to planned unit development can take place by the Town Board, the developer or his authorized agent shall apply to the Planning Board for and secure sketch plan approval of such planned unit development in accordance with the sketch plan approval procedures established in Subsection E. A public hearing shall be held by the Planning Board according to Article X of this chapter. At the discretion of the Planning Board, the public hearing and the sketch plan approval proceeding may be held simultaneously, otherwise the sketch plan proceedings must be held prior to the Planning Board's public hearing on the amendment. Upon receipt of a favorable report from the Planning Board or upon its own determination subsequent to an appeal from an unfavorable report, the Town Board shall set a date for and conduct the public hearings necessary for the purpose of considering planned unit development zoning for the applicant's plan in accordance with the procedures established in Article X. The development of the planned unit development shall be conditional upon the applicant's securing of final site plan approval in accordance with procedures set forth in Article V and compliance with all additional conditions and requirements as may be set forth by the Town Board in its resolution granting the planned unit development.
(4) 
The Town Board shall determine in each case the appropriate land use intensity or dwelling unit density for individual projects. The determination of land use intensity ratings or dwelling unit densities shall be completely documented, including all facts, opinions and judgments justifying the selection of the rating or density.
(5) 
When common property exists, the ownership of such common property may be either public or private. When common property exists in private ownership, satisfactory arrangements must be made for the improvement, operation and maintenance of such common property and facilities, including private streets, drives, service and parking areas and recreational and open space areas.
(6) 
Site plan review under the provisions of Article V shall suffice for Planning Board review of subdivisions under Chapter 439, Subdivision of Land, of the Code of the Town of Chili, subject to the following conditions:
(a) 
The developer shall prepare sets of subdivision plat as required by Chapter 439, Subdivision of Land, of the Code of the Town of Chili and suitable for filing with the office of the Monroe County Clerk in addition to those drawings required above.
(b) 
The developer shall plat the entire development as a subdivision; however, planned unit developments being developed in stages may be platted and filed in the same stage.
(c) 
Final site plan approval under Article V shall constitute final plat approval under Chapter 439, Subdivision of Land, of the Code of the Town of Chili, and provisions of § 276 of the Town Law, requiring that the plat be filed with the Monroe County Clerk within 62 days of approval, shall apply.
[Amended 12-3-2008 by L.L. No. 4-2008]
(7) 
Upon receipt of a complete application for sketch plan approval and preliminary site plan approval, the Planning Board shall refer said application to the Monroe County Department of Planning for its report to the Planning Board within 30 days of receipt of said referral.
(8) 
For the purposes of regulating development and use of property after initial construction and occupancy and changes other than use, changes shall be processed as a special permit use request to the Planning Board. Use changes shall also be in the form of a request for special permit use, except Town Board approval shall be required. Properties lying in a PUD District are unique and shall be so considered by the Planning Board or Town Board when evaluating these requests, and maintenance of the intent and function of the planned unit shall be of primary importance.
E. 
Sketch plan approval. In order to allow the Planning Board and the developer to reach an understanding on basic design requirements prior to detailed design investment, the developer shall submit a sketch plan of his proposal to the Planning Board and a completed environmental impact assessment statement to the Conservation Board.
(1) 
Requirements. A sketch plan layout shall be prepared and submitted to the Planning Board with the number of copies as required by the Town for distribution as needed to coordinate with other consultants or agencies. Before preparing a sketch plan layout, the developer may discuss with the Planning Board, Town Supervisor or the Town Engineer the general requirements as to design of streets, reservation of land, drainage, sewerage, water supply, fire protection and other improvements, as well as procedural matters. Developers of land adjoining state or County highways are advised to consult with the District Engineer of the New York State Department of Transportation or the County Director of Public Works at the sketch plan layout stage in order to resolve problems of street openings or stormwater drainage at the earliest possible stage in the design process. The Planning Board shall study the sketch plan layout of a proposed subdivision in relation to existing or potential development of the adjacent area, the Town and County Master Plans, if any, and, in the course of its review, consult with other interested public agencies. The sketch plan shall be approximately to scale, though it need not be to the precision of a finished engineering drawing, and it shall clearly show the following information:

A. 
Purpose; approval required.
(1) 
The purpose of the Planned Neighborhood Overlay District (PNOD) is to provide flexible land use and design regulations that promote unified and orderly development of neighborhoods within the Town of Chili. A prerequisite to rezoning land to PNOD is the preparation of an overall development plan that allow an orderly transition of land uses, both internally end externally, to the PNOD site. PNOD land uses shall consist of a mix of residential, neighborhood commercial, restricted business and open-space uses. The PNOD is an overlay zoning district with regulations that superimpose additional permitted and conditionally permitted uses upon the underlying zoning district in exchange for a pattern of development that integrates the existing neighborhood with the planned neighborhood. The PNOD allows flexibility in planning and development of parcels of land that are located within one of the nine Study Sub-Areas defined in the adopted Town of Chili Comprehensive Plan, Figure 2-4, thereby assuring compatibility with adjacent development and the creation of a planned neighborhood.
(2) 
Whenever any Planned Neighborhood Overlay District (PNOD) development is proposed, and before any permits for the erection of permanent buildings or facilities in such planned neighborhood shall be granted, and before any subdivision plat or any part thereof may be flied in the office of the Monroe County Clerk, the applicant shall apply for and secure approval of such planned neighborhood overlay development in accordance with the procedures set forth in this chapter. These procedures shall supersede any inconsistent procedures or regulations set forth elsewhere in the Town Code.
B. 
Permitted uses.

D. 
Dimensional requirements.
(1) 
The following dimensional requirements shall be met in order to qualify as a Planned Neighborhood Overlay District (PNOD) development:
(a) 
A PNOD development proposal shall contain at least 30 contiguous acres of land, of which at least 15 acres are developable, that is located along one of the major highways listed in § 500-59 of the Town Code; have a minimum frontage of 650 feet along one of the major highways listed, and be abutting to land more than 1/2 of which has been zoned for or actually developed for residential purposes. Where the applicant can demonstrate that a particular site's characteristics will meet the PNOD objectives set forth in Subsection E below, the requirement of minimum frontage along a major highway may be modified by the Planning Board. The Town Board may consider a PNOD rezoning application where said land is less than 30 acres; however, not less than 15 acres, provided further that the land fronts along one of the major highways listed in § 500-59 of the Town Code. In addition, the Town Board shall find each of the following:
[1] 
That the development of the site(s) shall be served by both public water and sanitary sewer.
[2] 
That an overall development plan of the site meets the long-term needs of both the PNOD site and the neighborhood; and that all development can be realized in its entirety within the dimensional constraints established elsewhere in this section.
[3] 
That subsequent development of the entire site(s) will not result in any major or potentially significant adverse environmental effects on the site(s) or adjacent lands; in particular, that such development will not have significant adverse effects on the traffic-carrying capacities and traffic safety on the adjacent highways; and finally, that any such development will not significantly increase noise levels in the neighborhood.
(b) 
The minimum size for single-family residential lots used exclusively for patio homes shall be 7,200 square feet. All other types of single-family residential lots shall be 8,500 square feet.
(c) 
The maximum number of attached senior citizen dwelling units shall not exceed 18 units per acre. The total number of senior citizen dwelling units shall not exceed 35% of the total number of dwelling units within the PNOD. For purposes of this section "senior citizen dwelling unit" shall mean a unit which is handicapped adaptable or handicapped accessible and the construction standards for handicapped accessible or handicapped adaptable are those defined in the Americans with Disabilities Act codes and the New York State building codes for the physically handicapped in effect at the time of construction.
(d) 
Unless otherwise specified herein, the minimum front setback shall be 75 feet along state and county highways, 60 feet along all Town highways and 35 feet for all structures fronting an internal drive.
[Amended 12-3-2008 by L.L. No. 4-2008]
(e) 
Unless otherwise specified herein, the minimum side yard setback in a PNOD shall be 40 feet when the site being developed is adjacent to or abutting any other residential-zoned district boundary.
(f) 
Unless otherwise specified herein, the minimum rear yard setback in a PNOD shall be 45 feet when the site being developed is adjacent to or abutting any other residential-zoned district boundary.
(2) 
Subdivision and lot size restrictions. In the PNOD, the total acreage of all land included in the PNOD site shall be established as part of the rezoning application. Once established, no part of a PNOD site will be allowed as part of any other PNOD application. Within a zoned PNOD site the Planning Board shall have the authority under § 278 of New York State Town Law to modify applicable zoning criteria in order to achieve the most desirable pattern of development.
E. 
Special provisions applying to the Planned Neighborhood Overlay District.
(1) 
In order to carry out the purpose of the PNOD, a proposed project shall achieve the following objectives:
(a) 
A maximum choice of development incorporating any existing residential and nonresidential structures, buildings and facilities with proposed development.
(b) 
A maximum design solution to enable development of an integrated neighborhood having a mix of residential and nonresidential types of uses with common architectural features and design to promote adequate transitional areas from the PNOD sites to the adjacent land uses located within, but not exceeding 500 feet from the PNOD site.
(c) 
Assurances that all infrastructure, easements, rights-of-way and other site development approvals will be provided in the initial phase of development of a PNOD area, including but not limited to letters of credit.
(2) 
The mix of permitted uses and conditionally permitted uses, scale of any such use, density and general design standards shall be determined by the Town Board, based in part upon a recommendation from the Town Planning Board made prior to any PNOD rezoning pursuant to the provisions of this chapter. The determination of the mix of permissible uses and conditionally permitted uses is intended to allow the Town Board to prohibit one or more permitted uses and/or conditionally permitted uses from the list of said uses enumerated in Subsections B and C of this section, as the Town Board determines appropriate due to the unique characteristics of the site, the proposed development, the location and impact neighboring uses and the goals and policies contained in the adopted Town of Chili Comprehensive Plan.
(3) 
Area limitations for various areas. Within a PNOD, the following percentage of the gross area shall be devoted to the specific uses:
(a)

Specifically excluded from the computation of gross area to be devoted to PNOD uses is land located within any regulated federal or state freshwater wetland area. In addition, the space devoted to streets and parking within and exclusively servicing such open space or recreation use is also excluded from consideration within the 60% criteria. Such maximum gross area shall also exclude all of the private recreational facilities that are part of a PNOD site.
(b) 
A minimum of 20% of the total PNOD site shall be used for common or public open space and recreational uses. This area shall exclude all streets, roads, required yards and required parking spaces.
(c) 
A maximum of 20% of the total PNOD site shall be used for conditionally permitted uses, structures or facilities. Said maximum shall include the parking and service areas exclusively servicing such facilities.
(4) 
All PNOD sites shall be designed to create a use of land and related physical development, which allows an orderly transition of land uses, both internally and externally to the PNOD sites.
(5) 
All PNOD sites shall be designed to preserve mature hardwood trees, unique plant species, natural topography, historic structures and geographic features found on the site and same shall be preserved in the manner identified in the Town of Chili Open Space Index or the Town of Chili Open Space, Park and Recreation Master Plan.
(6) 
All PNOD sites shall also be designed to prevent any erosion or sedimentation problems from occurring on adjacent properties.
F. 
Off-street parking. Off-street parking shall be provided as required in Article VI, § 500-43, and as may be further required in this section.

Before consideration of any rezoning of property to PNOD can take place by the Town Board, the Planning Board shall conduct a public hearing on the overall development plan within 62 days of the receipt of the complete application. The Planning Board shall also consider the adequacy of the environmental record and the appropriateness of the rezoning application within 60 days of the receipt from the Town Board. Within 45 days after the close of the public hearing, the Planning Board shall submit its written report to the Town Board. If no report is rendered within these time frames, or unless such time limit has been extended by formal action of the Town Board, the applicant may proceed on the basis that the report is favorable.
[Amended 12-3-2008 by L.L. No. 4-2008]
(c) 
Upon receipt of a report from the Planning Board, at a regularly scheduled Town Board Meeting, the Town Board shall consider the application for the PNOD as any other application for amendment after the Zoning Map and schedule a public hearing within 62 days of its receipt of said report.

Upon approval of the requested rezoning by the Town Board, the applicant may proceed with applications for specific site plan approval of any subsequent development in accordance with the provisions of Article V, Site Plan Approval.
K. 
Request for changes in the PNOD overall development. If in the development of the Planned Neighborhood Overlay District site it becomes apparent that certain elements of the PNOD overall development plan, as it has been approved by the Town Board, are in need of modification, the applicant shall then present a modified overall development plan to the Planning Board as a preliminary site plan in accordance with the above procedures. The Planning Board shall then determine whether or not the modified overall development plan is still in keeping with the intent of the zoning resolution. If a negative recommendation is reached, the revised overall development plan shall be considered disapproved. The applicant may then continue development of the site in conformance with the approved PNOD overall development plan or appeal the Planning Board's recommendation to the Town Board. If an affirmative recommendation is reached, the Planning Board shall also notify the Town Board stating all of tile particulars of the matter and its reasons for feeling the project should be continued as modified. Preliminary site plan approval of a modified overall development plan may only be given with the consent of the Town Board.
L. 
Staged development. If the applicant wishes to stage the PNOD development, then the applicant may submit for site plan approval only those stages proposed to be developed, in accordance with an overall development plan which identifies the staging of the PNOD development plan. Any overall development plan that requires more than 24 months to be completed shall be required to be staged, and a staging plan must be developed. It is the intent of this chapter that individual stages of the PNOD will have an integrity of use in their own right so that, if for any reason, the entire PNOD would not be completed, those portions of the PNOD already constructed will be an asset to the community by themselves. Staging plans must take into account this objective.
M. 
Other regulations applicable to Planned Neighborhood Overlay District.
(1) 
Regulation after initial construction and occupancy. For the purposes of regulating development and use of property after initial construction and occupancy, any changes shall be processed as a special use permit request to the Planning Board when evaluating these requests, and maintenance of the intent and function of the Planned Neighborhood Overlay District shall be of primary importance.
N. 
Commencement of development. If construction of the principal building(s) pursuant to a valid building permit is not diligently prosecuted within not more than two years from the effective date of any resolution designating an area as PNOD, then the area shall automatically revert to the zone district in effect prior to designation. At any time prior to such reversion, the Town Board by motion, upon recommendation of the Planning Board, may grant an extension, which shall expire no later than three years after the effective date of the regulation designating the area as PNOD.

[Amended 12-3-2008 by L.L. No. 4-2008]
(b) 
Before the consideration of any rezoning of property to the Planned Institutional Development (PID) District can take place by the Town Board, the Planning Board shall conduct a public hearing on the institution's master plan, environmental record and PID rezoning application within 62 days of the receipt of the complete application referenced above and as received from the Town Board. Within 62 days of the public hearing date, the Planning Board shall submit its written report to the Town Board. If no report is rendered within these time frames, or unless such time limit has been extended by formal action of the Town Planning Board, the applicant may proceed on the basis that the report is favorable.
[Amended 12-3-2008 by L.L. No. 4-2008]
(c) 
Upon receipt of a report from the Planning Board, the Town Board shall consider the application for the PID District as any other application for amendment of the Zoning Map. The Town Board shall refer said application to the Monroe County Department of Planning for its advisory report in accordance with the provisions of §§ 239-l and 239-m of the New York General Municipal Law.

Upon approval of the requested rezoning by the Town Board, the institution may then proceed to make application for specific site plan approval of any subsequent development in accordance with the provisions of Article V, Site Plan Approval.
J. 
Request for changes in PID Zoning Master Plan. If in the development of the institution it becomes apparent that certain elements of the PID Master Plan, as it has been approved by the Town Board, are in need of significant modification, the applicant shall then present a modified master plan to the Planning Board as a preliminary site plan in accordance with the above procedures. The Planning Board shall then determine whether or not the modified plan is still in keeping with the intent of the zoning resolution. If a negative decision is reached, the revised site plan shall be considered as disapproved. The applicant may then continue development of the site in conformance with the Approved PID Master Plan, or appeal the Planning Board's decision to the Town Board. If an affirmative decision is reached, the Planning Board shall so notify the Town Board stating all of the particulars of the matter and its reasons for feeling the project should be continued as modified. Preliminary site plan approval may then be given only with the consent of the Town Board.

A. 
Purpose. The purpose of the AC Agricultural Conservation District is to encourage a proper environment to foster customary agricultural operations and rural residential land uses; to maintain an open rural character; to protect viable agricultural soils; and to coordinate residential densities with the availability of utilities. The district regulations contain incentives to encourage landowners to maintain lands in permanent open space and/or agricultural use. In exchange for owners agreeing to maintain lands in open space or agricultural use, the Town Board may approve an incentive that would increase the number of single-family lots that would be otherwise permitted. The Town will strive to achieve attractive and functional site development plans consistent with the rural residential objectives of the Town's Comprehensive Plan. Strip roadside development will be discouraged and subdivisions should be designed to maintain open space and to minimize the disruption of viable farming activities.
