The City of Port Jervis has begun the process of updating its Comprehensive Plan, Zoning Law, and other land use regulations in accordance with New York State law. Its intent is to modernize planning and zoning procedures and to further the quality of residential life in the City, support its local and tourism-related businesses, and maximize its commercial and industrial opportunities while at the same time protecting the community’s heritage, environment, and natural resources.
The purpose of these initial Community Workshops is to introduce the public to the Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Code Update process. We will also work together to define the City’s strengths and identify issues and concerns that should be addressed through this planning process. Residents, property owners, business owners, and all others who are interested in the future of the Port Jervis are encouraged to participate in either one of these workshops.
The Committee was established by the City to prepare the Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Code Update. The Committee’s recommendations will ultimately be forwarded to the Common Council for adoption. The project is funded, in part, through a grant provided by the New York State Department of State under Title 11 of the Environmental Protection Fund.
