Welcome to the Town of Prattsville Comprehensive Plan project website. We are excited that you are here and interested in the future of the Town. This website is intended to provide information regarding the development of the Comprehensive Plan update, and keep the community informed of opportunities to participate in the process.
Why create a new Comprehensive Plan now?
Phased Planning Process
The initial visioning phase, which is scheduled for completion by December of 2022, will provide for robust community engagement and extensive public involvement to establish a clear vision for the future of Prattsville.
Through Phase 1, Prattsville will seek to achieve balanced and diversified community input utilizing a variety of outreach methods to solicit participation. Engaging the community in meetings, focus groups, surveys, and interviews, residents and business owners will be directly involved in forming the vision for development and preservation in the Town of Prattsville. Phase 1 will further allow the Town to evaluate progress made in recent years, identify gaps, prioritize the community’s next steps, and leverage future funding opportunities.
Phase 1 activities include:
- Public Outreach Efforts
- Public Meeting 1: Open House
- Public Meeting 2: Workshop
- Community Vision Plan
The second phase will leverage the findings, and analysis conducted during Phase 1 into the preparation of the full Comprehensive Plan. the Town has an opportunity to apply to NYS Department of State’s (NYS DOS) Smart Growth Comprehensive Planning Grant Program to complete Phase 2 of the planning process. Robust community involvement, input, and support is of major importance not only in our planning approach to this project but it is also critically important in the competitive grant funding process.
We appreciate your interest in this vital planning project and welcome your insights and questions to help shape the planning process and the future of the Town of Prattsville.
Phase 2 activities include:
- Establish Community Vision
- Inventory and Analysis
- Identify Goals & Objects
- Draft 1 Completed for Review
