  • New Paltz Walks – We’re Building Community


    New Paltz Walks is a newly formed initiative, aimed to build and strengthen our community, one block at a time.
    The Village Mayor, Deputy Mayor, and Building Department will be leading walks throughout various neighborhoods.
    We strongly encourage neighbors and community members to walk with us, lending their insight, thoughts, and feedback – both good and bad – about the area that we are walking.

    Our first New Paltz Walks was held in the second week of April, and was a great success!
    We walked along Church Street, and had more than a dozen folks come out to walk and talk with us along the way.
    While we walked, we took note of citizen concerns, future planning ideas, zoning regulations, code issues, and the cohesiveness and structure of specific blocks.

    Starting in May, we will be walking from 6pm to 8pm on Thursdays. We already have a list of upcoming walks, so please join us!

    Upcoming Walks:
    May 1 – Plattekill Avenue , Maiden Lane, and Lincoln Place-NEW DATE -THURSDAY, JUNE 5, 2014
    May 8th – North Chestnut Street (to Mulberry Street)
