Comprehensive Plan Update
Overview
The Village of Irvington has recently commenced the process of updating its 2003 Comprehensive Plan.  This is an important process as it helps chart the direction of the Village for the next ten years or more.  The Board of Trustees has engaged the services of David Smith of Planning & Development Advisors to assist with the Comprehensive Plan Update process.

Any questions about the Comprehensive Plan Update process, please email Larry Schopfer, Village Administrator or call (914) 591-4358.


Recent News
To oversee the update process, the Board formed a Comprehensive Plan Committee, which includes each member of the Board of Trustees, along with the chairman of the Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals, and the Architectural Review Board.  The Comprehensive Plan Committee then formed working groups consisting of civic-minded volunteers to study and make recommendations about important topic areas.  Those topic areas were: the Downtown; Code Modernization; Historic Irvington; and the Broadway Corridor.

After nearly 40 volunteers held approximately 2 dozen meetings over a period of approximately 8 weeks, a list of recommendations was assembled.  Additionally, the recommendations from the 2003 Comprehensive Plan were carefully analyzed.  Those recommendations that were not implemented (or were partially implemented) are presented for consideration as to whether any should be carried forwarded and retained in the Comprehensive Plan Update.

On the evening of Thursday, July 13, the Comprehensive Plan Committee will present their list of recommendations along with the outstanding recommendations from the 2003 Comprehensive Plan.  The meeting will be held in Village Hall (court room), 85 Main Street, starting at 7pm.  The meeting will also be webcast and will be available on demand.

It is important to note that the purpose of this public meeting is to present the recommendations and to start the process of gathering feedback.  In the coming months, it is anticipated that feedback will be collected in many different ways, including comments at public meetings, written correspondence, emails, social media, and surveys.  For now, written correspondence can be sent to Lawrence Schopfer, Village Administrator, Irvington Village Hall, 85 Main St., Irvington, NY 10533 or by email at .  Other methods of feedback will be established and communicated separately.
