Caton, NY: Cluster Subdivision Ordinances

The Town of Caton’s subdivision regulations include a step-by-step conservation subdivision design process and cluster development provision designed to encourage flexibility, preserve natural qualities of open lands and reducing the costs of infrastructure.  A traditional subdivision plan can be submitted for major subdivisions only if it is demonstrated that a traditional layout would be most beneficial to the community and compatible with the site.  Otherwise, a cluster development is required that retains 50 percent of the land as undeveloped open space.
