The 2015 Comprehensive Plan for the unincorporated area of the Town of Greenburgh (unincorporated Greenburgh) is a document that builds on both the Town’s historic past and its present strengths to direct the future. The Plan is a blueprint that addresses foreseeable challenges, recognizes new opportunities, protects the environment, and fosters a vibrant economy with a good quality of life for its residents. It is a community-based document which presents a long term plan for the future.
CPSC SOUGHT PUBLIC COMMENT ON FIRST DRAFT
Following the release of the first draft of the Comprehensive Plan on March 21, 2014, the Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee (CPSC) held five outreach meetings (Tuesday, April 29th at 7:30pm; Saturday, May 10th at 10:00am; Thursday, May 22nd at 7:30pm and Monday, June 2nd at 7:30pm, and Monday, June 16th at 7:30pm)
in the Greenburgh Town Hall auditorium for the purposes of soliciting public comment. After each meeting the CPSC met to consider the verbal and written comments, and then posted our responses on our Web site. We have been regularly meeting since that time to gather additional data, further address issues raised, and modify the plan as appropriate.
SECOND DRAFT OF COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AVAILABLE
The wide range of public comments received contributed to the current second draft of the Comprehensive Plan, dated 3-24-15, which is now available on the Plan’s Web site (www.GreenburghComprehensivePlan.com). You may also go to the site by clicking "Comprehensive Plan Update" on the Town's Web site homepage, www.GreenburghNY.com. Hard copies are available at the Greenburgh Public Library and at Town Hall in the offices of the Town Clerk and of the Department of Community Development and Conservation.
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU. PUBLIC HEARING SET FOR SECOND DRAFT
On Tuesday, April 28, 2015 (1:00pm – 4:00pm & 7:00pm – 10:00pm), the CPSC will hold a public hearing regarding the 2nd
draft of the Plan. Written comments may be sent to PlanZone@GreenburghNY.com anytime up to two weeks after the public hearing is closed.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE PUBLIC HEARING
Following the conclusion of the Public Hearing, the CPSC will make any necessary changes and forward its recommendation to the Town Board. The Town Board will discuss the Plan during its public meetings, ensure compliance with the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQR), hold its own Public Hearing, and consider adoption of the Plan.
After reading the document, we hope you come to the afternoon and/or evening session of the Public Hearing on April 28, 2015, or write to us, and comment on the revised document. We look forward to your comments.
