To the Editor,
An important opportunity is coming up for residents to voice their thoughts on a new draft Comprehensive Plan. The first public hearing, conducted by the Comprehensive Plan Committee/Economic Development Committee, will be on Wed., June 1 at 7:30 at the Municipal Building.
The Committee, chaired by Ted Brumleve, with members Ray Clifford, Bettie Jackson, Laura Fallon, Joe Lippolis and Paul Doyle, has been working for over a year to update the Village’s existing 2003 Comprehensive Plan. In NYS, municipalities are supposed to have such plans in place to guide their zoning and future planning and also to update their adopted plans on a timely basis. The Committee is updating the 2003 plan with updated goals and achievable objectives.
The guiding principles of the 2003 plan were to Preserve traditional values, Strengthen Village assets, and Protect our resources. Believing these will remain the guiding principles of the plan, the Committee will outline new goals and objectives they believe are in keeping with these values.
A presentation by planning consultants, Buckhurst, fish & Jacquemart will be part of the evening followed by questions and input from residents. As I know there are many residents who share my interest in Croton’s future, I hope I will see many of you there.
