The Town of East Greenbush recognizes that the comprehensive plan provides an essential foundation for guiding future development and has demonstrated a commitment to maintaining the comprehensive plan document to effectively guide development in East Greenbush, writing the first Comprehensive Plan in 1970 and performing a complete Comprehensive Plan update in 1993.

Under N.Y. Town Law the Town Board, which is responsible for the preparation and adoption of a comprehensive plan, is authorized to appoint a special board directed to prepare a proposed comprehensive plan or amendment. Accordingly, the Town Board has appointed the Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee (CPSC) to advise and guide the development of the Town Comprehensive Plan Update. The Committee is a broad representation of the community, and Committee members will serve as liaisons to their respective groups, organizations and committees to encourage community participation in the planning process. In accordance with Town Law §272-a, the Committee will be responsible for holding a public hearing and forwarding a draft Comprehensive Plan to the Town Board for consideration. The Town Board, as the legislative body, is the only entity that can adopt the Comprehensive Plan.
