While not proposed zoning, the Town has also adopted an Agriculture and Farmland Protection Plan. This plan is intended to be a guide to future zoning changes that can help preserve farmland and encourage a productive and profitable farming community. It can be found at http://www.ulysses.ny.us/pdf/AFPP-FINAL_ADOPTED_02-26-13-with_MAPS.pdf.

TWO LOT SUBDIVISION PROCESS

For a two-lot subdivision or boundary line change that meets the zoning requirements, please deliver 5-6 signed/stamped surveys, $50 application fee (check made out to Town of Ulysses), and completed application form

You may be able to schedule a time to meet with the zoning officer in order for the surveys to be signed while you wait.
After signing the subdivision maps, the Town retains one of the surveys, and you are responsible for filing with Tompkins County. The first stop is at the County Assessment Department (128 E Buffalo St) for their review and stamp, followed by a stop at the County Clerk (320 N Tioga St) for official recording. The signed surveys must be filed within 62 days of the Town's signing date.
