For several months during 2016-17, the Town and Village of Stillwater worked jointly together to collaboratively develop new zoning code changes and design standards that would promote walkable mixed-use development where there is existing development, protect and preserve rural and historical areas including north of the Village and near the Saratoga Historic Battlefield, and enhance and support economic development and revitalization efforts along the Route 4 corridor. This project involved updating both the Town and Village zoning codes and resulted in individual updates for both jurisdictions.
The goal of this project was to create seamless zoning code and design standards that provide regulatory consistency along the Route 4 corridor and support, maintain, and enhance the unique and historic mixed-use, walkable land use/development pattern in this portion of the Town and Village.
The project included a public survey, and several public presentations followed by a public hearing in March 2016. Below are the final documents from the study.
