Community & Economic Development

The Town of Thompson has made community and economic development a top priority, here are some of the major initiatives we are excited to share with you.


Grow the Gateways Plan and Project

The GTG is a strategic plan developed with the assistance of the County Planning Department for the Village of Monticello and the Town of Thompson to improve targeted corridors through economic development initiatives, zoning, improved design standards and collaboration. The steering committee comprised of County, Town and Village Officials and staff, the IDA, Monticello Central School District, County Visitor’s Association, Sullivan Renaissance, and Granite Associates continues to meet monthly to further advance the recommendations of the plan.
