The Town of Gaines is updating its zoning regulations. The Town’s current regulations were initially adopted in 1983 and have been amended several times since then.
A comprehensive review and update will:
Ensure consistency with the Town’s recently adopted Comprehensive Plan
Remove inconsistencies with NYS laws and other government regulations
Improve clarity and ease of administration.
The zoning update will codify the Town’s policies regarding land development in various areas of the Town:
along State highways where commercial development may be appropriate;
in rural and agricultural areas of the Town; and
within traditional hamlets and historic districts.
