Division of Planning and Community Development

The Sullivan County Division of Planning and Community Development is responsible for the creation of programs that foster orderly development and redevelopment of the County's physical infrastructure in a manner that conserves natural resources while providing economic opportunity for area residents. The Division of Planning also offers technical assistance to local municipalities and assists with the development of land use policies.  Located in the historic Catskills Region, sixty miles northwest of New York City, Sullivan County is home to nearly 75,000 year-round residents and an additional 45,000 second-home owners.

Sullivan County's land area is 1,011 square miles and is composed of 15 towns, 6 villages, and more than 30 hamlets. Its physical environment ranges from historic urban centers to bucolic farming communities nestled within an unsurpassed open space network that includes:  the Upper Delaware Scenic & Recreational River, Catskill Park, Basherkill Wetland, and Shawangunk Ridge.

You are invited to explore our web site to get a better understanding of how the Division of Planning and Community Development is helping to guide growth and redevelopment in Sullivan County.
