POUGHKEEPSIE – Town of Poughkeepsie Supervisor Jay Baisley has announced that the town is updating its Comprehensive Plan and is seeking public input through an online survey.

Town law requires the periodic review and update to the Comprehensive Plan. It has been more than 12 years since the town’s last Comprehensive Plan was adopted, and much has changed within Poughkeepsie. The town board has appointed a Comprehensive Plan Review Committee (CPRC) to update the 2007 plan. The committee will be assisted by town staff and a planning and design consultant team from Nelson, Pope, & Voorhis, LLC.

With input from the community, the updated Comprehensive Plan will evaluate existing conditions, lay out a vision for the future of the Town, and provide policy recommendations to direct action toward achieving the Town’s vision.

The CPRC has released a public survey which can be accessed by using the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PlanPK. Your response to this survey is invaluable and important for shaping the updated Comprehensive Plan.

Given current public health concerns, the CPRC is not able to host meaningful public workshops at this time. As soon as it becomes feasible again, the CPRC will move forward with these workshops. Check the Town Comprehensive Plan website for updates on the plan process and opportunities for public input by searching “Town of Poughkeepsie Comprehensive Plan” or by using this link: https://www.townofpoughkeepsie.com/planning/cprc/index.html

The CPRC wants to hear from you. Please contact the CPRC anytime at CPRC@townofpoughkeepsie-ny.gov with questions and/or comments.
