Planning Board

The Planning Board has the responsibility under the Village of South Blooming Grove Subdivision Law to review site plans. The Planning Board also has the responsibility under the Village of South Blooming Grove Zoning Law to review site plans submitted for real estate development prior to construction. In reviewing the site plans, the Planning Board evaluates environmental impacts under the New York State Environmental Quality Review Act (forms here) and considers such elements as:

  • Environmental impact
  • Access
  • Parking
  • Screening
  • Signs
  • Landscaping
  • Location and dimensions of buildings
  • Adjacent land use and physical features meant to protect those uses

The Planning Board then makes recommendations to the applicant with respect to those elements before deciding whether to accept the site plan. All applications for the Planning Board must be submitted prior to the 20th of the month in order to be scheduled for the following month’s agenda. The standard application form may be found here. Other materials for consideration need to be finalized no later than the Friday before the Planning Board meeting.

Meetings are held on the third Thursday of every month at 7:00 p.m.
