Planning and Economic Development
Plans and Studies
The Town of Colonie's comprehensive plan, first adopted in 2005, serves as a guide for growth and development in the town. As a guiding document, the comprehensive plan is subject to amendments or updates from time to time to remain current in light of changed concepts, conditions and preferences.
Generic Environmental Impact Statements (GEIS)
The Town of Colonie has prepared Generic Environmental Impact Statements (GEIS's) for three areas of the Town totalling approximately 15,100 acres. These studies analyzed the cumulative and long-term impacts of projected growth, and set out policies and procedures for future actions to be undertaken or approved by the Town within the defined areas.
