The Riverhead Town Board and Planning Department have made significant progress in implementing the land use policies of the Town of Riverhead Comprehensive Plan. Code revisions to the Riverhead Zoning Ordinance have been the most important short-term priority for the Town Board since the adoption of the Comprehensive Plan on November 3, 2003. The Town Board held a series of public hearings and special meetings in the Spring and Fall of 2004 to hear and adopt each of the new districts proposed in the Comprehensive Plan.
