The Village of Ossining Board of Trustees announced that they are starting the process of updating the Village’s 2009 Comprehensive (Land Use) Plan and are looking for volunteers to serve on a committee to be part of the process.
A Comprehensive Plan (Plan) outlines a “blueprint” for future physical growth and identifies economic opportunities while addressing changing needs relating to public health, social equity, cultural diversity, environmental protection, and regional trends which may impact the Village over the next ten years and beyond.
The first step is to establish the Comprehensive Plan Committee (CPC). The committee will be comprised of neighborhood representatives and those with experience to include, but not limited to, recreation, community design, economic development, environment, housing, education, historic resources, infrastructure, and transportation.
This is an opportunity for Village residents, community partners, experts, businesses and elected officials to come together to help create a vision, goals, and policies for the Village of Ossining with many opportunities for community engagement through workshops, surveys, and public work sessions.
This also helps to build consensus for priority projects and identifies action steps necessary to implement the Plan that balances moving forward with sustainable growth while improving the local economy, providing quality housing for all, maintaining high-quality education, and creating safer streets.
The Board of Trustees plans to select a group of citizens from diverse geographic, demographic, and economic backgrounds to provide guidance and feedback throughout the Comprehensive Plan process.
An Information Session will be held at the Ossining Public Library on Thursday, February 28th, 2019 @ 7:00 PM.
We thank the residents of the Village of Ossining for their dedication and commitment to service.
