New Paltz wants your input!

We want to know your vision for the community to help us design a plan for a better tomorrow.

In the next few months, the Town and Village of New Paltz are working on developing a Community Climate Action Plan. A climate action plan is a detailed and strategic framework for measuring, planning, and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and related climatic impacts. Communities design and utilize climate action plans as roadmaps for making informed decisions and understanding where and how to achieve the largest and most cost-effective emissions reductions that are in alignment with other municipal goals.

Why Participate?
This is a great way to voice your opinion regarding the things you care about. We need to know what you and our municipalities can do to combat the climate crisis.

Public Meetings & Videoconferencing // 9/13 ZBA Meeting Cancelled

Remote Meetings

Governor Hochul did not renew the state of emergency related to COVID-19, which has now expired as of 12:00 a.m. today. With it expires the permission to have board members attend meetings remotely, except in cases of emergency, and only if pre-authorized by the legislative body.

The first two sections from Local Law 1 of 2022, passed at the June 6, 2022 Village Board meeting, allowing for videoconferencing:

    1. Members of the public body shall be physically present at any meeting of such public body unless such member is unable to be physically present at any such meeting location due to extraordinary circumstances due to
      1. disability;
      2. illness;
      3. caregiving responsibilities;
      4. any other significant or unexpected factor or event which precludes a member’s physical attendance at such meeting;

The above conditions are grounds for remote participation by board members. Board members who wish to meet remotely must give notice in advance of a public meeting. 

    1. A public body may, in its discretion, use videoconferencing to conduct its meetings, provided that a minimum number of members are present to fulfill the public body’s quorum requirement in the same physical location or locations where the public can attend, and all other requirements set forth hereafter have been met;

Videoconferencing may be used, provided that a minimum number of members attend the public meeting in-person. The full text of the local law authorizing videoconferencing may be found here.

Locations for Village public meetings will be posted.  Please contact the Clerk or the Mayor’s office if you have any questions.

Please join us on Tuesday, September 13, at 10am, at Mohonk & Elting Avenues in New Paltz, across from St. Joseph’s Church.

We are hosting a ribbon cutting at the intersection of Mohonk and Elting Avenues on Tuesday, to thank all those involved in our multifaceted project, which is part of our initiative to source more safe and affordable drinking water in New Paltz. Work is nearly complete on the Hasbrouck Park expansion at this intersection, which offsets the alienation of parkland near Moriello Pool for the creation of two new municipal drinking water wells.
