New Paltz village limits building height to 3 stories on north side

The decision, which affects a mixed-use zoning area along North Chestnut Street, will reduce the current limit by one story. “We already have a downtown New Paltz,” said former mayor Tom Nyquist, expressing a view which is common among those seeking to scale back the current rules. Others, like architect David Toder, whose mixed-use Zero Place development is proposed for the area ,see the blighted North Chestnut corridor as precisely where a vision of 21st-century development should be unfurled.
