State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) Process for Blueprint Binghamton

A municipality’s adoption of a comprehensive plan is subject to SEQR and is classified as a Type I action in SEQR regulations. The Main and Court Corridor form-based code is also subject to SEQR, according to 6 NYCRR Section 617.4(b)(2) which states that "the adoption of changes in the allowable uses within any zoning district, affecting 25 or more acres of the district" is a Type 1 Action.  

The Mayor’s Commission on Housing & Home Ownership was appointed in the Spring of 2008 with an inaugural meeting on April 3, 2008. Four main objectives were specified as the Commission’s charge:

The City of Binghamton is committed to working with developers and business owners to develop quality projects that benfit the applicant and the City. The Development Process involves the Department of Planning, Housing and Community Development, Office of Building and Construction, and the Binghamton Economic Development Office (BEDO). We develop and administer standards and policies governing development in Binghamton to protect environmental quality, promote economic growth and ensure neighborhood vitality.

2003 Comprehensive Plan

In 2003 the City of Binghamton completed a city-wide Comprehensive Plan which was adopted by Binghamton City Council. The plan, created by the Saratoga Associates, covers a wide range of strategies for improving the social and economic well-being of the City of Binghamton. Included in the plan are detailed changes to the City's zoning and concepts for improving economic growth in the downtown district.

The Comprehensive Plan is available as a PDF download to the right.
