Master Plan hearing tonight

master plan HZTThose who care about future development — including housing, industrial, commercial and historic development — in Saugerties should attend a public hearing on the Comprehensive Plan Tuesday, March 12 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Frank D. Greco Senior Center at 207 Market Street. This is an opportunity for the public to provide input and suggestions regarding the goals and overall vision for the Town/Village of Saugerties Comprehensive Plan. All residents of Saugerties are invited to attend.

The town and village of Saugerties prepared and adopted their first Comprehensive Plan in 1999, recognizing that community planning is an ongoing process, and recommended periodic updating of the Comprehensive Plan to incorporate the results of subsequent plans and studies and to reflect any unanticipated events or issues. The update process was started in 2010 by the Saugerties Comprehensive Plan Update Committee. In the summer of 2011, the Town/Village of Saugerties secured grant funding through the Hudson River Valley Greenway to hire a planning consultant to assist the committee in preparing the Comprehensive Plan update.
