The Cayuga County Planning Board 2013 Land Use Training Series continues in September with…
The best areas for development are flat or contain slopes between 0% and 8%. But what are the risks of developing on steeper slopes? The consequences of poor development decisions on steep slopes, defined for this training as 15% or greater, can have profound and permanent impacts on the environment and the public’s health, safety, and general welfare. This training will cover the potential negative impacts of building on steep slopes and what local towns and villages can do to mitigate these impacts without stifling development. A model steep slope ordinance will be presented for review and discussion along with examples of “good” and “bad” steep slope development. The expense for property owners and municipalities will also be addressed.
Presenter: Cayuga County Planning.
