is to be in the future, the process of developing this plan should be a community-
wide effort. All interest groups should have a part in determining what this vision
should be. The Town of Tusten government appointed a group of concerned citizens,
Planning Board members, and Zoning Board of Appeals members to sit on the
Comprehensive Planning Committee and engaged the Sullivan County Division of
Planning and Environmental Management to help develop this Comprehensive Plan.
The first phase of the process consisted of collecting available data on the social and
physical aspects of the Town while engaging citizen participation. After analyzing all
existing data and taking input from the citizenry into consideration, goals and
objectives were developed. These goals and objectives form the foundation of the Plan.
