The
Village of Kinderhook

Comprehensive plan Update

In 1999, the Village adopted its first Comprehensive Plan. In 2006, the Village reviewed and updated this plan to include more specific goals and action plans. At present, as per the 2006 Plan, the Village Board has tasked the Planning Board to undertake another review of the vision, policies and recommendations contained within the original and the first update to the plan, assess progress and perform the requisite analyses to support further implementation activity.

The Village Board and Planning Board considers the 1999 and 2006 updated plans as remaining very relevant and viable. Although those plans contain many very good recommendations and ideas, the Board desires more action-oriented details in order to facilitate implementation. The goal for this update is to produce more discrete planning details, action steps, budgetary needs and revenue creation schemes to support future implementation. A further goal is to reconnect with the citizens and business owners - to report to them on our accomplishments to date and the status of new initiatives. Finally, this second plan update will include changes to our maps to reflect changes that have occurred since the last issuance of the plan to better serve our community planning activity.
