Natural Resources Inventory

This project was carried out through a partnership among the City of Rensselaer, Rensselaer Land Trust, Cornell University and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Hudson River Estuary Program with funding from the New York State Environmental Protection Fund. The goal of the Natural Resources Inventory is to collect, visualize, and interpret the City's natural resources in order to provide a basis for sustainability and resiliency to be fully incorporated into Rensselaer's long term planning and project review process.

The Natural Resources Inventory was adopted by the Planning Commission for use in the review of all development proposals and planning efforts on June 1st, 2021.
