In 1975, Local Law No. 3 of the Cortland County Legislature created the Department of Planning with the intent to preserve the physical beauty and natural resources of the County.
The Department serves the current and future residents of the County in many ways. They help prepare for economic development, industry growth and increases in population.
The Planning Department works closely with the 19 municipalities located within Cortland County.
The County Planning Board meets every third Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. The next meeting will be held via WebEx, which can be joined by clicking the link here. The next meeting is October 20, 2021 at 6:30 PM. The packet can be found here.
