When requested, the commission helps communities in efforts to upgrade their zoning, subdivision regulations, or other local land use controls. While the “return on investment” that comes from good community planning may not be as easy to measure as money raised for sewer, water and related projects, Tug Hill communities certainly gain greater control over their own futures by putting such controls in place. Guiding growth in this way can often have big economic returns in avoiding costs associated with road construction and maintenance and other public services.
