How to View this Data: The data below can be viewed in a GIS software platform or in ArcGIS Explorer, a free GIS viewer.  All data is in UTM NAD 83, Zone 18N.  Some datasets have been broken up by County to reduce file size. 

Note: We do not provide a data layer of preferred growth areas because it is meant to offer broad-scale estimates of areas that can accommodate growth. Further refinement at the town scale is necessary before this data is made public. For questions regarding any of the data or if you represent a town or village interested in the preferred growth dataset, please contact Abigail Weinberg, aweinberg@osiny.org.
