Chatham village considers comprehensive update

Apr 01, 2015 12:03 am
Emilia Teasdale reports in The Columbia Paper that Chatham Village held a public hearing on a new Comprehensive Plan last week. About 20 people heard about the first update in 20 years, which reads in part, “A combination of tourism, arts, recreation, close-knit neighborhood and home-grown businesses set the Village of Chatham apart from other communities.” An information kiosk and better signs on the roads leading to the village are also part of the plan, as well as a recommendation to evaluate the Historic Overlay District regulations, which would mean changes to the zoning laws. The full draft plan is online at the village website, www.villageofchatham.com, and copies are at the Chatham Public Library on Woodbridge Avenue and at the Village Clerk’s Office in the Tracy Memorial.
Written comments can be submitted until April 13 to Mayor Tom Curran at mayor@villageofchatham.com or at the Tracy Memorial at 77 Main Street, Chatham, NY 12307. Read the full story in The Columbia Paper.
