Huntington Land Use Map Overlays

April 2024. There is a discrepancy between the description of the boundary between the Woodland and Conservation zoning districts as described in the text of the Land Use Regulations (as amended January 2024) compared to the on-line and paper versions of the map referenced in the Land Use Regulations.  The Huntington Planning Commission is in the process of addressing the discrepancy. Please contact the ZAO for additional information.

A Subdivision creating two or more separate lots must have a Subdivision application submitted to the ZAO before subdividing your property. This application is reviewed by DRB. All paperwork must be submitted before a hearing with the DRB is scheduled.


Applications for the Town of Huntington’s DRB are due the first (1st) Wednesday of every month by 12 noon for the following month’s DRB meeting.

All applications, to be considered for DRB review, shall have a pre-application discussion with the ZAO to ensure clarity of application material required.

If DRB applications, upon timely submittal are deemed incomplete, the ZAO will make a good faith effort to contact the applicant of record to inform what materials are required to complete the application. If the application is not deemed complete by 12 noon of the second (2nd) Wednesday of the month prior to the scheduled DRB meeting, the application will not be placed on an agenda.
