Zoning – Land Use Permitting
The Land Use Permitting office is responsible for administration of the Town’s land use regulations; primarily the zoning ordinance and subdivision regulations. We provide technical assistance to the local review boards (Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals) in review applications for new commercial development (site plan review), new subdivisions, and requests for relief from the zoning regulations (variances).
We ensure commercial site plans and subdivisions are implemented as approved through regular field visits. Our staff reviews each building permit application (over 900 annually) for compliance with the local zoning regulations. We field 100’s of inquiries and complaints regarding the land use regulations as well as administer the local regulations regarding signs, stormwater management, wetland, and transient merchants to name a few.
If you have a question about when Queensbury NY land use permits, such as when a permit is required or the permitting process, please contact our office.
