Description:
Abstract:
"Patterns for Westchester" is a policy document and map adopted by the Westchester County Planning Board in 1996 to guide future development decisions in Westchester County.  The three data layers that comprise the mapping elements of "Patterns for Westchester" are as follows: WCPATDEN shows open spaces and recommended levels of residential and non-residential development in terms of units per acre and Floor Area Ratio.   WCPATCEN shows the four types of "concentrated centers" in the county e.g. Hamlet, Local, Intermediate, Major Centers. WCOSV is an open space overlay, identifying areas of open space character.
Purpose:
These data layers were developed as part of "Patterns for Westchester", as described above, to provide a graphic statement about the direction future development should take in Westchester County.  It offers parameters for county and municipal planning decisions by providing a unified picture of the density that surrounds existing centers, of the extent of developed corridors and transportations arteries, and of the definite elements of open space.
