Town Code Enforcement Officer Stephen Imhoff said the latter is expected to drastically decrease the number of variance applications filed with his office.
The new code also incorporates provisions from local laws, such as on wood boilers and small wind-energy facilities.
The changes make it easier for town residents and developers to find out what is allowed, he said.
Imhoff said he appreciates the efforts of those who served on the committee.
“This is the vision they want to see in the town for the next 10 years,” he said.
Town Supervisor Bernie Bassett said he is excited the project has been completed.
“This took a lot of time by our staff and volunteers working with the consultant.”
It provides for controlled, well-planned development and growth in the town, Bassett said.
“They looked at the current and future needs of the community.”
