What is the Town’s Biodiversity Overlay and what does it represent?

The Town’s Biodiversity Conservation Overlay is another overlay district, similar to the four the Town already has: ridgeline, aquifer, agricultural, and traditional neighborhood design.

If your project site falls within the Biodiversity Overlay, special considerations must be taken and a Biodiversity Assessment must be completed. The Biodiversity Conservation Overlay map is located here. The Biodiversity Assessment Manual for the Hudson River Estuary Corridor is located here.
