Seneca, NY: Agricultural Zoning Ordinance

The Town of Seneca adopted an updated zoning code in 2004.  The code includes an agricultural zoning district that permits one subdivided lot with one single-family dwelling for each parcel greater than five acres.  The density standards permit a maximum density of one unit if under 50 acres and one unit per 50 acres if over 50 acres.  The town and Ontario County use a computerized real property system that allows them to document permitted subdivisions.
