The Sandy Creek Regional Planning Board is concerned over potential environmental and social impacts that may result from the influx of tourists to the area ex- pected to oc^ur due to the ex- pansion of the Salmonid Fishery, the Fort Drum Expansion, and the overall increased popularity of the town for seasonal homes and recreational use. Such an influx will have many positive benefits to the local economy; however, the \Pulaski\ experience has forewarned of the need to prepare for a boom in fishing and tourism- related businesses. Towards this end, the Sandy Creek Regional Planning Board has recommended that the town adopt a \Site Plan Review Law to regulate lodging, eating and drinking establishments\. A Site Plan Review Law requires a developer or owner to obtain approval of a specific plan for a particular site showing how various problems are handled, including traffic, drainage, parking and effects on neighboring residences. It is not to be confused with zoning which divides a tdvwa into various \zones\ and specifies allowable densities and uses for each zone. A zoning ordinance establishes zoning districts and is ac- companied by a map depicting those districts and appropriate use and dimensional regulations. Use regulations generally prescribe which uses shall be permitted and which uses shall be permitted with the condition that they receive the approval of the Planning Board. Dimensional regulations control the height, bulk, and location of new development. Zoning ordinances also contain supplemental provisions relating to signs, or street parking, shorelines, non-conforming uses, and aspects of administration and procedures. Site Plan Review Site Plan Review is a technique that planning boards find helpful. Site plan review allows the developer or owner to present a specific plan for a particular site showing how various problems are to be handled, including traffic, drainage, parking and land- scaping. This technique enables municipalities to take into account the special characteristics and potentials of sites, assures that new development blends with its set- ting, and takes advantage of site benefits such as good views and recreation areas. It permits planning boards to give final approval to site development plans, whether or not a zoning ordinance is in effect. An understanding of the capabilities and limitations of a site is just as important as an un- derstanding of the project planned for the site. Both the site and the project are reviewed in order to understand how the community may be affected by a new project. If properly applied, the process enables, new development to be tailoreift^'fit* the site. A public hearing on the proposed site plan review law will be held by the Town Board on Thursday, August 29, 7 p.m. at the Town Hall on Harwood Drive. Copies of the proposed law are available from the town clerk's office which is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday. U' \ r- 7 \^
