Public Notices

Town Board: Adoption of updated Subdivision Law: On February 19, 2015 the Ancram Town Board adopted Local Law #1 of 2015 which included Land Subdivision Regulations and Subdivision and Highway Construction Standards. This local law 1) clarifies definitions for roads and driveways; 2) clarifies how to determine frontage; 3) adds boundary line adjustments as a classification; 4) clarifies when the classification clock starts; 5) emphasizes the Planning Board's openness to communication with all applicants and the corresponding intent and nature of the sketch plan conference; 6) clarifies the coordination and conduct of site visits; 7) establishes road layout standards; and 8) provides format/heading changes to enable readers to more easily identify each section. This local law also deletes some features that are outdated or otherwise don’t coincide with current practice, including passages about notifications, filing notices, and copy requirements. In addition, all procedures and time frames were brought into conformance with New York State Town Law. A copy of this adopted subdivision law is available from the Ancram Town Clerk, and is available on the Town web site at http://www.townorancram.org.
