  • Clarkstown’s Innovative Comprehensive Plan - LULA Case Study | Pace Law School
    framework of the new comprehensive plan after an EIS This creative approach not only eliminated the redundant use of planning resources but also led the town to add a biodiversity element to comprehensive plan that equips the town to strategically map its future environmental needs A corollary to this EIS based biodiversity minded approach is that the planning process has yielded for the town a multi layered digital database of information Through the utilization of grassroots resources professional consultants and a GIS specialist the information gathered during the research phases of the planning process produced a wealth of functional data which will enable the town to forecast potential environmental issues facing the town in the future As stated by Mr Simoes the idea was to create a plan that is not just a stack of papers but it is comprised of all the data that all of our departments will use every day Grassroots Planning Clarkstown s commitment to a grassroots planning strategy is a fundamental reason why their new Comprehensive Plan is so promising Clarkstown is a large community with a population of over 80 000 people spread out over 8 unique hamlets and one incorporated village The town has been able to use this large and diverse community pool to its benefit because unlike other townships that are fragmented by intermunicipal politics Clarkstown has a centralized governmental structure that has allowed its land use leaders to maximize the use of the community s resources In seeking to take advantage of the town s governmental design the planning department developed a three prong approach to the planning process The first prong began with the establishment of a Comprehensive Plan Special Board This board was charged with the task of developing the main elements of the new Comprehensive Plan resulting in a town wide roadmap that focused on Economic Development Environmental Resources Health Safety Welfare Historic Cultural Resources Housing Recreation Parks Open Space and Transportation Based on these focal points the special board created seven subcommittees each responsible for developing the respective components of the Comprehensive Plan Using techniques acquired through the LULA training program along with consultations by Professor John Nolon the town initiated the second prong of its planning process a grassroots based community outreach program Each of the seven planning subcommittees was open to public participation This participation was achieved by engaging the community in a way that would ensure hamlet wide participation Eschewing the practice of holding evening planning meetings at the Town Hall in New City the town opted instead to conduct numerous meetings at local high schools throughout the township in order to increase the convenience of the planning process In addition the town incorporated the inclusion of local high school students in the planning process An often neglected demographic the town realized that Junior and Senior students from all of the town s high schools could provide valuable information that would enable the planning department to understand how the new Comprehensive Plan could
