Town of Evans Comprehensive Plan Update

New York State recognizes that long-range planning is a significant benefit to not only government operations and finances, but also to community at large, providing residents an opportunity to have a direct stake into the future of Evans-Angola.
Proactive planning keeps the Town and Village “ahead of the game” rather than being reactive to issues that come up. Typically, plans are updated every 10-15 years to keep them relevant with changing times, but can be less than that depending on the level of implementation and action of a community.
