The Department of Planning is creating an innovative set of tools for Westchester County municipalities. Utilizing the vast knowledge and data of the Department of Planning, from GIS to census reports, collaborative efforts can successfully guide and improve upon how we grow as a county. We are offering local communities a new and efficient means for community planning as part of the county’s shared services initiative which will expedite productivity while also reducing cost to the county and the municipalities.
Comprehensive plan base studies have been developed in collaboration with the Village of Rye Brook and the Town of New Castle. We hope, soon, to make base studies available for other county municipalities.
Collaborative efforts have also been successful with the Village of Sleepy Hollow for their Downtown Study utilizing the same data, tools, and technologies as the base studies project.
