A site plan consists of a rendering or drawing prepared to scale with all necessary details to portray the arrangement, layout, and design of the site to be developed.  Site plans are required when a building or structure is to be erected, when a building or structure is altered such that its footprint or façade is altered, when vehicular or pedestrian movement or walkways are altered, when surface water drainage is altered, when exterior lighting is installed or altered, or when designed landscaping is installed or altered.

In the process of coming to a decision on the site plan, the Planning Board considers the geometric characteristics of all structures and related improvements, the aesthetic characteristics such as design, texture, materials, colors, and illumination, and the physical attributes of the site including size, shape, elevation, topography, and natural vegetation.

The Planning Board also examines compliance with the laws of the Town, any possible adverse impact the proposed use may have on the surrounding properties and neighborhoods, the physical and visual compatibility with the surrounding neighborhood, accessibility of emergency services, handicapped accessibility, public safety issues, hours of operation, parking and loading facilities, and snow storage amongst other things.

The Planning Board meets on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Board Room of the Camillus Municipal Building.  Dates are subject to change as necessary (see the Town Calendar for the most up to date information).  All Planning Board meetings are open to the public.  When a Public Hearing is held regarding a proposed project, attendees will be provided with an opportunity to speak regarding the issues being considered. 

Legal notices are published in the Post Standard Newspaper.  Meeting agendas are available on this website, by email request, and at the Town Clerk’s office.  Meeting minutes are available below, by email request, and at the Town Clerk’s office once they are approved for publication.
