17 MUNICIPAL HANDBOOK The Municipal Handbook is a guide for municipal leaders on the issues in the watershed and the tools available to them to address those issues. This presentation was prepared for the New York State Department of State with funds provided under Title 11 of the Environmental Protection Fund.

18 UNDERSTANDING THE HANDBOOK - ISSUES Issues that were discovered and evaluated during the LWRP project were as follows: Water Quality Sustainable Built Environment How to build sustainably Natural Resources and Environment How to preserve what we already have Local Character Scenic Views How to protect and which ones to protect Small Towns and Villages Maintaining the local character Historic Resources Preserving history Economic Sustainability Agriculture protecting Tourism - Maintaining This presentation was prepared for the New York State Department of State with funds provided under Title 11 of the Environmental Protection Fund.

19 UNDERSTANDING THE HANDBOOK BEST PRACTICES Best Practices are tools and strategies that are voluntary. These may be practices for individual residents or municipalities/leaders. Regardless, best practices are things that we should be striving to do to protect our watershed. Includes: Environmental Protection as Economic Development Natural Resource Protection Open Space Preservation Viewshed Protection Preserving Agriculture Smart Growth Green Infrastructure Historic Preservation This presentation was prepared for the New York State Department of State with funds provided under Title 11 of the Environmental Protection Fund.

21 UNDERSTANDING THE HANDBOOK TOOL HIGHLIGHT : DESIGN GUIDELINES Design Guidelines are tools to shape the visual impact of new development within your community.

70 Viewshed Prioritization

71 UNDERSTANDING THE HANDBOOK ISSUE HIGHLIGHT: HIGH PRIORITY VIEWSHEDS A viewshed is the area visible from a particular point. There are many nice viewsheds around Keuka Lake. Unreasonable to protect all views, so we prioritized the views. Overlay zones could be adopted to protect and limit development within the priority areas. This presentation was prepared for the New York State Department of State with funds provided under Title 11 of the Environmental Protection Fund.

82 UNDERSTANDING THE HANDBOOK TOOL HIGHLIGHT : ONLINE MAP VIEWER Also created during the LWRP grant was an online map viewer. This has parcel information overlaid onto aerial photography for the watershed. It can be useful when making planning decisions. In the handbook you find a guide on how to use the mapper. Can be found at: This presentation was prepared for the New York State Department of State with funds provided under Title 11 of the Environmental Protection Fund.

88 UNDERSTANDING THE HANDBOOK LEGAL TOOLS Legal Tools are legally binding options that municipalities can adopt in the way of regulations. Includes: Conservation Easements Purchase of Development Rights Stream Buffer Setbacks Flag Lots Steep Slope Limitations and Ridgeline Overlay Zones Cluster Subdivisions This presentation was prepared for the New York State Department of State with funds provided under Title 11 of the Environmental Protection Fund.

89 Conservation Easement & Purchase of Development Right Conservation Easement Legal agreement between land owner and state/local government or non-profit. The agreement clearly lays out what is to be preserved on a certain piece of land and what activities will be permitted or banned and where on the property. Finger Lakes Land trust utilizes this. Municipalities could seek these agreements, or work with a land trust to achieve them. Purchase of Development Rights Type of conservation easement where municipality or non-profit actually purchases the right to develop a certainly piece of land and therefore maintain it for open space. Currently NYS has a competitive program which land owners can be reimbursed up to 87.5% of the value of the development rights on their land through acquisition of an agricultural conservation easement. By allowing the actual purchase the land owner only pays taxes as an open space or agricultural use.
