Planning Department Origins

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.

Regional Service

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.
