How Land Use Regulations Can Help Beautify Communities

March 16, 2007

[NARROWSBURG] – A two-part workshop on “Community Design Tools” and “How Towns and Villages Can Use Land Use Regulations to Beautify Their Communities” will be held on Monday, March 26 at the Tusten Town Hall in Narrowsburg.  There is no cost for either part of the workshop and the public is welcome to attend. 


The workshop is co-sponsored by Sullivan Renaissance and the Visioning Committee of the Upper Delaware River Corridor, in partnership with the Sullivan County Division of Planning and Community Development.


The first part of the workshop begins at 5:00 p.m. and is titled “Beautifying your Community through Property Maintenance.”  This hour-long session will provide an overview of the various types of regulations which address the upkeep of private property, including yard maintenance laws, litter laws, and local junk laws.


An optional light dinner will be available at the door at 6:00 p.m., provided by the Visioning Committee for a $10 donation. 


After the dinner break, the second part of the workshop begins at 7:00 p.m. and will focus on a wide variety of “Community Design Tools.”  These range from simple design guidelines to landscape ordinances and architectural review boards.


Members of planning and zoning boards who attend will receive continuing education credits, but anyone interested in the topic is encouraged to register by calling Helen Budrock at 845-295-2462. 


Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Beaverkill Foundation and the Gerry Foundation.  For information about this or other programs, contact Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445 or on line at
