General Municipal Law (GML)

New York General Municipal Law (GML) requires that certain types of municipal planning, zoning and subdivision projects be referred to County Planning for review prior to local action being taken. The requirement seeks to promote coordination of land use decision-making and to enhance consideration of potential inter-municipal and county-wide impacts. This requirement is outlined in Article 12-b of the GML, ยง239 l, m and n. This process is commonly referred to across New York State as the "GML 239 referral", the "GML 239 review", or simply the "239 review" process.
