Diagnostic Report

A community’s zoning should be the implementation of its vision as outlined in its planning. The Town’s zoning should reflect the uniqueness of Southold and its hamlets and the collective vision of its residents. That vision should radiate through the regulations. As the Town prepares to consider amendments to the zoning code, this report provides a critical review of the Town’s existing zoning regulations as they relate to the community’s vision and desired outcomes. It also provides considerations of ways to better promote the Town’s vision and desired outcomes through zoning amendments.
