This site is dedicated to the activities of the Village of Cayuga Heights Planning Board. The Independent Planning Board was created in the Fall of 2009 by the Cayuga Heights Board of Trustees.
Prior to the IPB's inception, the trustees were performing all of the duties required by a planning body. Unfortunately, this left little time to look toward, and make provisions for, the future of our community. In early 2009 a progressive group of trustees lobbied for, and were granted, the ability to create an "independent" body consisting of residents who were solely focused on molding the future of our village. After a successful recruiting campaign, a diverse collection of Cayuga Heights residents were tapped to sit on the board and charged with creating a vision for the future of the Village of Cayuga Heights.
The primary goal for the Planning Board is to create a comprehensive plan for the village. This plan will study the history of the village, determine its current strengths and weaknesses, and make projections for what issues will shape the future of our community. In addition, the plan will serve as a road map to help the village achieve its goals and assist future community leaders in their efforts to meet the needs of our residents. In addition, the board will also be responsible for ongoing Site Plan Review and Special Use Permits as they are submitted.
Meetings are held on the fourth Monday of every month at 7pm in Marcham Hall. These meetings are open to the public and all interested parties are encouraged to attend.
Would you like to see a local Pub or a sit-down coffee shop in Community Corners? How about a park or a village square in the heart of our community? Better sidewalks or a bike lane to work?
Well, let's hear about it!!!!
