From Commercial corridor to modern main street
Hyde Parkers want a downtown where they can eat and shop, work and relax. A walkable downtown will make Hyde Park a vibrant Hudson Valley destination and an even better place to live. It will also boost the tax base.
The Hyde Park Town Board is improving the town center through cooperation and creativity. While the specific use of each property is the property owner's choice, the town is using the tools available in the public sector to encourage investment -- improving infrastructure, creating attractive streetscapes, maintaining a predictable review process and keeping taxes under control.
Sidewalks create a safe and inviting atmosphere for people of all ages to walk. The Hyde Park Town Board has taken advantage of plentiful sidewalk funding opportunities.
Updated zoning guidelines give investors confidence and ensure that the community's needs and expectations are clear. Hyde Park is modernizing zoning on Route 9.
Adding a sewer system to Hyde Park's commercial district will support more businesses and housing. The Town is designing a sewer system and assembling funding for construction.
Active partnership with residents, business people, property owners, and all units of government is helping Hyde Park to grow a strong economy in a cooperative spirit.
