About the Ulster County Planning Board

Mission Statement

The mission of Ulster County Planning Board (UCPB) is to promote, encourage and support solutions among levels of government, agencies and other stakeholders in matters affecting conservation, preservation, and development. In pursuing this mission, it is of critical importance that the Planning Board and its staff be widely accessible to the public, comprised of technically and professionally experienced members, broadly represented geographically, and independent from political influence. The very nature of the Board’s duties and the responsibilities of its staff require a non-partisan approach in order to work for the benefit and welfare of Ulster County. The following bylaws are intended to provide a written framework for organizing and implementing policies and programs to enable the Planning Board to carry out its functions.
