Supervisor’s Report – June 6, 2019

On Monday, June 17, 2019 the first public meeting on the new Comprehensive Plan will be held at 6:00 p.m. at the Red Barn in the Town Park!East Greenbush last promulgated a Comprehensive Plan in 1993, although a Land Use Update was published in 2006.Since the Town is changing so fast, the Town Board approved funding for a new Comprehensive Plan. This will be followed by amendments to the Zoning Map and an update to the Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS).

The public meetings are critical to the process.We have no preconceived ideas as to the form the new Plan should take because we want to know how Town residents envision the future of their Town. Are we growing too fast? What areas and resources should be protected? What do we mean by the term “smart growth?” How can we enhance walkability? What are the implications of the Albany-Hudson Electric Trail?There are many questions that have to be answered before we can put together the right Plan.The session on the 17th is a Visioning Workshop that will include information tables, opportunities to provide input, and a formal presentation by MJ Engineering, the consulting firm we have retained to help put the Plan together.Please come and share your views.
