Oneida County Department of Planning

Herkimer-Oneida Counties Comprehensive Planning Program (HOCCPP)
Herkimer-Oneida Counties Transportation Study (HOCTS)

The Planning organization in Oneida County and Herkimer County is somewhat unique in New York State.  This uniqueness is a result of the interrelationship of three major planning organizations that are housed in one location, the programmatic emphasis of various planning activities, and the common link of the professional staffs.

The combined staff serves the Oneida County Department of Planning, the Herkimer-Oneida Counties Comprehensive Planning Program (also known as the Regional Planning Board), and the Herkimer-Oneida Counties Transportation Study. The Planning Department also contracts with Herkimer County to provide staff services to the Herkimer County Planning Board.

Planning activities are conducted at both the county and regional levels with extensive local assistance provided to the area's cities, towns & villages.

Our constituents are provided with the most reliable up-to-date and comprehensive information needed to make critical decisions which ultimately affect the area's land development, natural environment, transportation systems, human services, criminal justice, and economic development potential.

The planning activities within Herkimer and Oneida Counties are typically categorized and focus on: Transportation Planning, Land Use and Zoning, Human Services Planning, Census and Statistics, Water Resources and Environmental Planning, GIS Mapping, and Economic Development. Additional information about these program areas is included within the links provided.

The Herkimer-Oneida Counties Comprehensive Planning Program is also a member of the New York State Association of Regional Councils.  Additional information can be found at NYSARC
