While town officials say there are guidelines in place to protect the district, members of a grassroots group want a change in the law to protect the area.

Trustee Richard Straut, newly elected to his appointed post, plans to continue the work he has started  — on water, sidewalks, and helping to develop a comprehensive plan for the village.

VOORHEESVILLE — The public is invited to attend a Community Visioning Workshop to inform the village’s Comprehensive Plan Committee.

The workshop will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 5, at St. Matthew’s Church at 25 Mountainview St. in Voorheesville.

Faced with two controversial planning issues this year that brought crowds to village board meetings, Voorheesville now has a 14-member committee that is working on a comprehensive land-use plan, which the village board hopes will be completed within a year.

A ruling on narrow grounds, if not appealed, paves the way for 180-foot tower.

As Voorheesville sets out to draft a blueprint for development, it would be wise to follow advice from the architect of Altamont’s master plan: Be open and inclusive.

The third phase of a public hearing on a proposal for planned unit development districts in Voorheesville left no doubt in the minds of village board members that now is the time for Voorheesville to draft what the mayor called a blueprint for its future, a comprehensive land-use plan.

A mix of town, planning, and zoning board members looked into proposed revisions for the town’s hamlet zoning law.

A zoning review committee that  submitted its report last month put the town's new comprehensive plan to use in a major way for the first time.

Proposals were presented for planning at Voorheesville's "triangle" of Grove Street, Main Street, and Voorheesville Avenue, but a draft master plan won't be submitted until closer to the end of April.
