TDR, revision to Lysander's land use plan
Lysander officials plan to make a decision regarding the transfer of development rights program during the first meeting in April. The two-part public hearing that was recently held by the town was in regards to step one of the TDR program, which is amending the comprehensive land use plan adopted by the town in 1991.
"(The amendment) is not specific about what kind of transfer of development rights or how it's going to work. It's just really setting the basic ground rules to allow this progressive program to happen," said Brian Madigan, a landscape architect and senior land use planner at Barton and Loguidice.
Officials are waiting to receive feedback regarding the environmental impact study for the Cold Springs peninsula before making a decision.
