new land use plan:

Land use is important to achieving sustainability at a regional level. Good land use planning helps to preserve natural areas, improve air and water quality, create walkable communities, support transit, reduce energy usage and improve livability for our residents. The County is developing a new land use plan, which will discuss current development patterns and resulting challenges to economic, social and environmental sustainability. The plan will focus on working together as a region to promote sustainability, creating a vision for our community and making the decisions necessary to enhance quality of life to make Onondaga County a great place to live for future generations.
