The Town of Coeymans has initiated an update to its 2006 Comprehensive Plan to reflect the needs of today and identify a direction for the future. The Comprehensive Plan amendment will create a framework for the future of the Town related to a range of topic areas, including land use, economic development, infrastructure, transportation, government administration and the environment. The Town Board has hosted a variety of public outreach and engagement activities throughout the preparation of the document, including creation of a website devoted specifically to the effort, a community survey, socially-distanced in-person information pop-up tables at key community events, and a series of updates and discussions at Town Board meetings. Additionally, the Town Board has scheduled and opened a formal public hearing to gather public feedback. That public hearing remains open (visit the Town website for public hearing noticing information).
The planning process is being guided by the Coeymans Town Board and facilitated by a consultant team led by M.J. Engineering and Land Surveying, P.C. (MJ) of Clifton Park.
