A Comprehensive Plan is a document that focuses on immediate and long-term actions for growth and development, protection, and enhancement of a community. The plan includes goals, and strategies to achieve those goals. The comprehensive plan also provides for a legal basis for zoning changes in accordance with the Comprehensive Plan
The current Comprehensive Plan is more than 50 years old, and no longer reflects the challenges and opportunities the Town of Smithtown faces today, or will in the future. Changes to demographics, development trends, technology, laws, and many other factors have affected how people live, work, travel, and play in our community. As a result, we need a new Plan that reflects these new realities and plans for the Town’s future growth and development.
The Plan consists of new Goals and Objectives, a Land Use Plan, a Transportation Plan, a Community Facilities Plan, a Sustainability Plan, and Community Plans for each of the Town’s hamlets - Commack, Hauppauge, Kings Park, Nesconset, Smithtown, and St. James.
The draft Comprehensive Plan was presented to the Town Board on December 15, 2020. It is expected the final Comprehensive Plan will be complete in June 2021, contingent on the environmental review process.
Many community members participated in the initial public outreach by filling out the online questionnaire or attending a community workshop. Now that the draft plan has been presented to the Board and, there are a number of ways community members can review and comment on the draft plan as well as the Environmental Impact Statement.

The emerald ash borer (EAB) (Agrilus planipennis) is an invasive beetle from Asia that infests and kills North American ash species (Fraxinus sp.) including green, white, black and blue ash. All of New York’s native ash trees are susceptible to EAB.
If you believe that there is an Ash street tree in your neighborhood please report it to the Department of Environment & Waterways (DEW) by calling 631-360-7514 or email DEW@smithtownny.gov. D.E.W is actively inspecting, monitoring, and managing existing EAB infestations. If you believe that you have a private Ash on your property you can send pictures to Town of Smithtown - D.E.W and a town arborist can confirm if it is an Ash and give a limited assessment of any possible infestation.
