Welcome to the Town of East Greenbush Comprehensive Plan webpage! Visit this page to share your input and stay up-to-date on the latest information and public engagement activities related to the Town’s Comprehensive Plan Update.
What is a Comprehensive Plan?
A Comprehensive Plan is both a vision for the future and a blueprint for how to get there.The Comprehensive Plan will create a framework for the future for a range of topic areas including but not limited to land use, economic development, infrastructure, and housing.
Why Update a Comprehensive Plan?
The Town’s current Comprehensive Plan was last updated in 2006. Since that time, the Town and the region have experienced changes in demographics, the economy, infrastructure, land use and community needs. The Town has also engaged in several geographic-specific and focused planning efforts since 2006. It is time to revisit the Comprehensive Plan to ensure the direction set forth in the Comprehensive Plan is reflective of today’s community conditions and sets a direction for the future reflective of the community’s vision.
Who is Involved?
The planning process is being guided by a Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee appointed by the Town Board. The planning process will be facilitated by Town staff and a consultant team lead by MJ Engineering and Land Surveying.
The planning process will include a robust public engagement component to gather input about the future of East Greenbush from residents, business owners, property owners, and other stakeholders in the community. Your participation in this process is vital!
