Invitees will include municipal officials, county and municipal planning departments, and professional planners.
This webinar will discuss the economic and regulatory framework that is compelling developers of small “peaker” power plants to site projects in the Hudson Valley, and what municipalities can do to protect their communities from the impacts of these plants. While larger power plants are regulated under New York State’s Article 10, these smaller facilities are primarily under local jurisdiction.
Most municipalities in the Hudson Valley do not specifically address power plants in their zoning codes and could be vulnerable to an ill-sited project, such as the Lincoln Park Power Plant proposed in the Town of Ulster.
This webinar will provide zoning strategies and model ordinance language that municipalities can use to ensure that power plants—if they are permitted at all--are restricted to areas where undesirable environmental, public health and quality of life effects would not impact community character.
