The Town of New Paltz Route 299 Gateway Committee will review the Town Comprehensive Plan as it relates to the Route 299 Gateway area, and revise the Plan and the Town’s Zoning Code as needed to reflect the community’s vision for this important entranceway to the Town and the Village.  The Route 299 Gateway area is generally understood to be the section of Route 299 from North/South Putt Corners Road to North/South Ohioville Road, with its depth to the north and south of Route 299 defined by the boundary of the B-2 Zoning District.  The precise boundary of the Route 299 Gateway study area will be further refined by the Gateway Committee and the Town Board.

The expected outcome of the Committee’s work will be a proposed amendment to the Town’s Comprehensive Plan as it relates to this corridor (if needed), and the development of proposed zoning for the Route 299 Gateway Area that addresses the form and function of development in the corridor.  Illustrated design guidelines/standards will be incorporated into the regulations along with solutions for other important planning issues identified with the Committee such as: access management, trail connections, impervious coverage, low impact development, etc.

This project has been made possible in part by a grant from the Hudson River Valley Greenway: commited to the preservation, enhancement and development of the world-renowned scenic, natural, historic, cultural and recreational resources of the Hudson River Valley while continuing to emphasize economic development activities and remaining consistent with the tradition of municipal home rule.
