The town of Danby is in the midst of a major rezoning process. The current zoning regulations have been in place for a very long time and need to be reevaluated and revised. All subdivision applications have been put on hold until the end of the year. The plan is to have a new zoning ordinance by the end of this year. There are several committees meeting once or twice a month to help craft a new plan.
