14.07.100 Protection of natural resources.
Where natural drainage channels, floodplains, wetlands, woodlands, or other environmentally sensitive areas are encompassed in whole or in part within a proposed land division, the town and County zoning committee may require that these areas be dedicated or that restrictions, including those for conservation easements, be placed on the plat or certified survey map to protect such resources. The town or County zoning committee may further require that such areas be included in outlots designated on the plat or certified survey map and be restricted from development, including those for common areas within cluster subdivisions and condominiums. Conservation easements may be held by the town, a nonprofit conservation organization, or another entity approved by the town board. [Code § 14.07-10, 2018.]
