 Proposed Local Zoning Law Summary


This proposed Local Zoning Law would repeal and replace the existing Zoning Law and Zoning Map of Chapter 190 of the Town of Highland Code.

It has been revised and expanded to provide more clarity and direction for property owners, Town staff and the Planning and Zoning Boards; streamlines the application review processes; adjusts allowable uses and associated approval requirements; modernizes definitions and land management tools; improved sign regulations; and includes a revised Zoning District Map. Consistent with the Comprehensive Plan, new supplementary regulations have been created and existing regulations revised to enhance protection of the Town of Highland community character and natural resources while also promoting compatible economic development through various improvements including the Rural Commercial Floating District that will allow the Town to consider well-suited commercial development projects. A streamlined permitting process for eligible solar energy systems is also included along with revisions to the Town’s existing wind energy conversion system regulations to promote the use of small scale wind turbines and related systems while ensuring the protection of the Town’s aesthetic resources. New provisions have also been included to allow for accessory dwelling units and guest homes in an effort to provide alternative opportunities to serve the housing needs of current and future residents, while ensuring the development is in keeping with the Town’s character.
