Comprehensive Plan Update
Adopted Comprehensive Plan Update (PDF)
In 2018, the Village of Irvington updated its 2003 Comprehensive Plan. The update represents an important step to help chart the direction of the Village for the next ten years or more.
The Comprehensive Plan Update, which was adopted on May 21, 2018, can be viewed below:
To oversee the update process, the Board formed a Comprehensive Plan Committee, which includes each member of the Board of Trustees, along with the chairman of the Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals, and the Architectural Review Board. The Comprehensive Plan Committee then formed working groups consisting of civic-minded volunteers to study and make recommendations about important topic areas. Those topic areas were: the Downtown; Code Modernization; Historic Irvington; and the Broadway Corridor.
After nearly 40 volunteers held approximately 2 dozen meetings over a period of approximately 8 weeks, a list of recommendations was assembled. Additionally, the recommendations from the 2003 Comprehensive Plan were carefully analyzed. Those recommendations that were not implemented (or were partially implemented) are presented for consideration as to whether any should be carried forwarded and retained in the Comprehensive Plan Update.
After presenting an initial list of recommendations (PDF) in July 2017, the Comprehensive Plan Committee sought feedback on some of the more significant proposals. The areas covered and the feedback received are shown below in the resources section.
After publishing a draft and receiving comments, the Comprehensive Plan Update was adopted on May 21, 2018.
