In October 2007, the Village Board of Trustees authorized a Comprehensive Plan Review and appointed a committee of volunteers to update the Comprehensive Plan that had not been examined since 1974.

The committee has included the following people as members during this process:

Cristina Phillips, ChairpersonAngelo Ferrara, Board Liaison
Thomas Van TineDonald Van Nostrand
Geraldine FullerMichael Hayden
Hans KlingzahnAnthony Ruggiero
Kenneth Hack 


Working with the committee under an inter-municipal agreement is Jennifer Cocozza, Senior Planner from the Dutchess County Office of Planning and Development.

The committee has been actively meeting since February of 2008, dedicating many hours each month to this task. They focused on seven policy areas:

  • Community Identity
  • Population and Economic Growth
  • Community Facilities
  • Historic Preservation
  • Housing
  • Transportation
  • Land Use

The goal statements were presented to the village residents at a public meeting held in June, 2008. Resident input was considered as the team continued its work. A Public Hearing in February, 2009 was held by the Committee upon completion of its work on the plan.

A Public Hearing, called by the Board of Trustees, was held on July 20, 2009 at 7:15PM. The Village Board of Trustees accepted the Plan by resolution at their regular meeting on July 20, 2008.
