Ithaca.com: Plan Envisions Changes for Varna
In 2005 The Dryden Planning Board composed a comprehensive development plan for the Town of Dryden. Subsequently, in the Dryden community recognized the need for a plan that is unique to developing the hamlet of Varna. According to Jane Nicholson, AICP Planner, of the Dryden Planning Department, “the Comprehensive Plan is essentially a framework that helps guide the community over period of ten to twenty years. Once a Comprehensive Plan is complete, it is up to the community to implement it. In the case of Varna, it was recognized by the town that with increasing development pressures in the Varna vicinity and availability of water/sewer, that Varna required its own plan. Additionally, there would be a zoning amendment that would help the community grow and develop while maintaining its character.”
