Guilderland Urbanization And Protected Lands [PDF] [PNG]  

Map uploaded on September 2, 2015.

Only about a third of Guilderland is heavily developed, mostly along US Route 20 and NY 146 (hamlets of Guilderland and Fort Hunter). The rest is mostly farm land with light development around Altamont, the former US Army Depot, and residential development along the roads. The Albany Pine Bush-area is the portion of Guilderland with the greatest development pressure. As noted the other day, this data dates back to 2011, so there has been some further urban development since this map data was collected.
