Project Name: Ulster County Open Space Plan and Program
Project Location: Ulster County
Ulster County is proposing to adopt, as part of its comprehensive plan, an "Open Space Plan." The Open Space Plan is a management framework that provides a means for County coordination of open space to protect efforts at the local, county and regional levels by embracing scientific, legal, financial, and participatory tools to determine our important open space resources as well as where and how the county grows. The framework contains four strategic action areas: Leadership, Linking, Learning, and Leverage. These are focused so as to provide recommendations for land conservation, capacity building to employ open space protection as part of development decisions, a clearinghouse of information on resources and practices, and a structure for coordination and collaboration among all stakeholders. The Plan also makes a series of recommendations on goals and actions for the protection of specific open space resources: Protected Open Space, Water Resources, Working Landscapes, Ecological Communities, Landforms and Natural Features, Cultural/Historic Resources, and Recreational Resources.
State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) Determination:
The Plan is a Type I Action under SEQR. A determination of significance has not yet been made.
