Town of Potsdam Comprehensive Plan Input
The town of Potsdam is in the beginning stages of developing a comprehensive plan. A comprehensive plan evaluates the land use policy of a community and presents goals and a vision for the future. It will guide official decision-making regarding the development of Potsdam.

In addition, Potsdam has recently signed the Climate Smart Communities (CSC) Pledge, a program organized by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation. In general, CSC is a framework for municipalities to achieve a broad set of goals, it opens funding opportunities for new state grants, and it works to reduce costs.

We hope that various components of the comprehensive plan (housing, business, agriculture, infrastructure, etc) will incorporate elements of the CSC program. This will help ensure that as we develop we will be resilient and financially stable for the long-term.

Please take a few minutes to read through the information provided at the beginning of this form and then provide input on key components of the comprehensive plan.

What is a Comprehensive Plan?
From the American Planning Association
“The comprehensive plan, also called the general plan or community master plan, is the official statement of a local government establishing policies for its future long-range development.” -Sustaining Places: Best Practices for Comprehensive Plans, APA, 2015

These take many forms. In general it will map out the community's plan and goals for growth, place making, land use, and maintaining infrastructure.
