[ARCHIVED] Comprehensive Plan Update - Public Meeting Thursday 7/13
Earlier this year, the Board of Trustees began the process of updating its Comprehensive Plan (originally adopted in 2003). The updated Plan will help chart the direction of the Village for the next ten years or more. 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.
On the evening of Thursday, July 13, the Comprehensive Plan Committee will present their list of recommendations along with the outstanding recommendations from the 2003 Comprehensive Plan. The meeting will be held in Village Hall (court room), 85 Main Street, starting at 7pm. The meeting will also be webcast and will be available on demand.
It is important to note that the purpose of this public meeting is to present the recommendations and to start the process of gathering feedback. In the coming months, it is anticipated that feedback will be collected in many different ways, including comments at public meetings, written correspondence, emails, social media, and surveys. For now, written correspondence can be sent to Lawrence Schopfer, Village Administrator, Irvington Village Hall, 85 Main St., Irvington, NY 10533 or by email at LSchopfer@irvingtonny.gov. Other methods of feedback will be established and communicated separately.Comprehensive Plan Information
