Comprehensive Plan


The South Bristol Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 2008 by the South Bristol, NY Town Board. A new Comprehensive Plan is currently being developed by a committee of South Bristol residents dedicated to the future of the Town.  A survey was compiled and mailed in 2015 and the comments/concerns were tabulated into the updated Comprehensive Plan.

Public Hearing:

The South Bristol Town Board will be holding a PUBLIC HEARING on Monday February 11, 2019 7:00pm at the South Bristol Town Hall for any PUBIC COMMENT regarding the updated Comprehensive Plan.  All South Bristol residents are encouraged to review the new plan and submit their concerns at the Public Hearing or by emailing the Town Clerk at

What it is:

A comprehensive plan is just that, a plan, a vision of the town’s future. It identifies community goals, suggests strategies to be employed, and recommends the actions needed to achieve those goals. It is not cast in stone, never to be changed. It must be reevaluated on a regular basis and adjusted, when necessary, to stay on track.

Vision Statement:

Preserve and protect our safe, clean naturally beautiful rural and scenic environment with carefully and fairly planned commercial, residential, agricultural and recreational development.
