Town Center Plan
The Hyde Park Town Board obtained a planning grant through the NYSERDA Cleaner, Greener Communities program to support redevelopment in the core commercial area of Route 9 through data-driven planning and infrastructure design.
The project was led by a steering committee that included: property owners, business leaders, community groups, and town, county and state agency representatives. The Town hired a professional team led by Delaware Engineering to create customized plans and designs.
The team gathered market data and public input, and created a conceptual plan. They then designed the sewer and street infrastructure that will support the vision. The final step was an analysis of zoning updates needed, which the Town plans to pursue.
This approach is innovative in that it goes beyond visioning to create a specific road map to implementation, with planning and infrastructure integrated.
Public Meeting #1: The planning team held a workshop on June 19 to invite public input into the Town Center Plan. Over 100 people attended and registered their opinions. 100 more participated via an online survey. Your ideas and preferences were recorded to become part of the plan:
