*RE-ADOPTION OF THE ORANGE ZONING MAP WITH ASSOCIATED REGULATION CHANGE, – Upon the initiative of the Orange Town Plan and Zoning Commission. The Orange Zoning Map has been digitally “updated.” There are no changes to any zoning districts or boundaries. In conjunction with re-adopting the Zoning Map, it is also proposed to amend Section 383-16 – Zoning Map, of the Orange Zoning Regulations.
The major issue with the zoning map is that it was not updated since 1999, it was printed in black and white, and the small print was unreadable.
The map has been digitally formatted, in color, and clearly readable. It will be up on the town of Orange website and can easily be e-mailed to anyone (citizens, attorneys, contractors).
The map was adopted in 1971, so it is overdue to be updated and adopted again.
The Commission unanimously agreed to adopt the new map and it was approved.
