The Tompkins County Planning Department created this website to assist interested municipal governments, businesses, non-profit groups, and local citizens in finding planning tools to help them achieve the goals set forth in the Vital Communities Development and Preservation Principles.
The Vital Communities Principles were developed through extensive community involvement and adopted as an interim measure by the Tompkins County Legislature in June, 2002. For more information, please visit the Vital Communities Website.
If residents of Tompkins County discover an interesting tool that could
potentially be used in their communities, the staff of the Tompkins
County Planning Department urge you to contact
us to find out more about the tool and its applicability in our
area. Another place to go for more information is the resources
page on this website.
