The Planning Board has specific duties as identified by New York State Law. The seven (7) member Planning Board is tasked with Site Plan Review, Subdivision Review as well as the review of Special Use Permits.
- Site Plan Review requires the Planning Board to examine proposed sites and proposed buildings in the context of how these items will relate and fit in the surrounding neighborhood.
- Subdivision Review requires the Planning Board to determine whether the creation of new buildable lots is warranted within the City of Mount Vernon.
- The review of Special Use Permits calls for the Planning Board to examine specific criteria for a particular use to occur on a site within the City of Mount Vernon.
Accordingly, the Planning Board has been making determinations concerning these types of applications since December 21, 1915 when the Planning Board was created by the City Council.
