Comprehensive Plan Update

The Comprehensive Plan Update Committee has been drafting the plan for the past several months. Having received public input during the earlier “fact finding” stage in 2020 via the community survey and focus groups, the committee is now ready to gather public input/comment on the draft. This input will consist of three activities:
  1. A “first look” by persons with a role in town government (completed)
  2. Community forums to be held in September
  3. Public hearings to be held later in the fall
Community forums are scheduled for Tuesday, September 21 at 7 PM and Saturday, September 25 st 10 AM, both at the New Lebanon Firehouse. Electronic copies of the DRAFT Plan may be found here.  A separate file for the appendices may be found here.  Reading copies are available at Town Hall and the Library for review on site.

A town’s comprehensive plan identifies goals, policies, strategies and specific actions  “for the immediate and long term protection, enhancement, growth and development of  the town” (Section 272-a NYS Town Law). Once a comprehensive plan is adopted, all town land use regulations and decisions must be in accordance with it and plans for capital projects by other governmental agencies must take the comprehensive plan into account. 

Obtaining public input is the most critical element of the plan update process. Please take the time to review the plan update and provide your comments.

The Comprehensive Plan Committee, tasked at reviewing the Town’s Comprehensive Plan meets the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 6:30 pm at the New Lebanon Town Hall.  All meetings are open to the public.
