How to Craft and Adopt 

Local  Laws

to Protect Land and Natural Resources 

This is a hands-on, how-to workshop.  Examples of local laws will be reviewed. Process of adoption will be reviewed. Possible benefits and risks will be outlined. The newly revised, released DEC sgeis will serve as background.

There is no one law for every town.  This workshop is being presented  with a clear understanding that laws must be in accordance with each individual town’s comprehensive plan, existing zoning ordinances, designations and actual natural features.

Careful review of examples from towns across NYS
 * Moratorium on heavy industrial usage (9 months)  
 * Heavy Industrial Usage Ban

 * Back up findings and documentation to support bans such as long EAF, comprehensive plans, CEA designations, agricultural districts, etc.
