Hillsdale Comprehensive Plan

In 2006, the Town Board initiated a process that created new committees to build upon the vision for the Town as presented in the Comprehensive Plan. Their mission:

  1. Help identify the goals set forth in the Town of Hillsdale’s Comprehensive Plan that have not yet been implemented.
  2. Prioritize these goals based on the Town’s immediate needs and financing availability and review with the Planning Board and Town Board.
  3. Develop, with assistance from the CPRC subcommittees, sound strategies and recommendations to implement these goals and submit to the Planning Board and the Town Board.
  4. Coordinate the efforts and foster cooperation and idea sharing among all CPRC’s subcommittees.
  5. Keep the public informed through coordinated meetings, newsletters, and press releases so that the citizens of Hillsdale are part of the process.
