Irvington commission is wrapping up work on comprehensive plan

by Audrey Thomasson

IRVINGTON—Some 25 residents attended a public hearing February 7 on the town planning commission’s suggested revisions to Irvington’s comprehensive plan.

Planning commission chairman Bill Young said that in the 10 years since the plan’s last update, there have been many changes in the economy and it’s impact on the town. He noted the plan’s last update was right before the recession, so the plan has been adjusted to better reflect slower growth and development.

Consultant Craig Wilson of Community Planning Partners Inc. noted that most of the undeveloped home parcels in town are two acres. “Most families are no longer interested in two-acre homesites. There’re interested in walkability to shops and restaurants.”
