Stuyvesant, NY: Cluster Subdivision Ordinance

The Town of Stuyvesant uses an incentive-based approach to encouraging the cluster of new housing and the retention of prime farmland.  Landowners proposing cluster subdivisions on parcels greater than 10 acres can receive a density bonus of one additional lot for each 10 acres of buildable area.  The density bonus is in addition to the standard number of lots permitted by local law.  To be considered a cluster subdivision, 50 percent of the parcel must be permanently protected for conservation purposes.
