Thompson – Monticello East Broadway Rezoning Informational Meetings to be held.
The Town of Thompson and Village of Monticello have been working to improve the local business climate in an effort to sustain the momentum of economic development experienced here in the past few years. Sullivan County’s unemployment rate is now the lowest in New York State. We want to build on this momentum to attract new and redevelopment projects, to add even more jobs, bring tax ratables, improve blighted areas and bring renewed vibrancy to our community.
Please join us at a meeting of East Broadway property owners to learn about the new initiatives taking place. In particular, we would like your input on a project to simplify the zoning on East Broadway, where property currently falls in a ragged patchwork of 11 different zoning districts across two municipalities. Our aim is to simplify and coordinate the zoning regulations so that projects can move through the approvals process with greater speed, less cost and more certainty, while promoting higher quality outcomes.
Two meetings will be held on:
August 22 and 29 at 6 PM
Monticello Fire Department
23 Richardson Avenue*
Please RSVP to the Division of Planning & Community Development by calling Kassondra Johnstone at (845) 807-0533 or emailing Kassondra.Johnstone@co.sullivan.ny.us.
The County is providing technical assistance to this project, which is being conducted by planning consultants Nelson, Pope & Vorhees through a Rural Business Development Grant from the USDA. Your participation is important, as we expect to propose amendments to the zoning regulations affecting your East Broadway property. If you cannot make either meeting but would like to learn more and provide comments, let us know so we can provide an alternate opportunity.
Thanks for joining us in the effort to make East Broadway a great place to do business!
*Refreshments, including kosher products, will be served.
