Dear Village Folks:
The Village’s Comprehensive Plan Committee has been working on its plan for more than two years and is holding a public meeting at 7 p.m., Thursday, November 12, at the Storm King Engine firehouse to share its latest draft.
The committee welcomes discussion with Village residents and other interested parties regarding the plan. The plan has progressed considerably and a draft can be found on the Village website HERE. The purpose of a comprehensive plan is to provide guidance for land use and improvements in the Village.
Due to the pandemic, occupancy at the meeting is limited to 50 persons and masks and social distancing are required for public safety. We do not anticipate a capacity problem at this gathering but we do ask for everyone’s cooperation as we continue to work to protect everyone’s health.
I am grateful to our hard-working committee, chaired by Led Klosky. The members are Mary Aspin, Dominic Cordisco, William Grisoli and Lorraine McGuinness.
Hope to see you there.
Notice is hereby given that the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson Comprehensive Plan Committee will hold a meeting at 7:00 p.m., Thursday, September 12, 2019 at 325 Hudson Street, Cornwall-on-Hudson, N.Y. with Kristen O’Donnell, the consultant hired by the Village to help the Committee complete the Comprehensive Plan, and to discuss other matters that may come before the comittee.

So, the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson will allow Trick or Treating on Halloween, Saturday, October 31, in this year of the pandemic. We want our children to experience the fun of this cultural tradition. And we want everyone to stay safe.
So, Trick or Treaters must wear face masks – in addition to masks for their costumes. And they must social distance and travel in small numbers, with kids in their circles.
Parents, please instruct your children to be safe, to abide by COVID-19 precautions that have been in effect since March.
There should be minimal car traffic – some village neighborhoods have hundreds of children on our streets. Be aware of the hazards of wet leaves on our streets. As usual, Village Police Chief Steve Dixon will have officers patrolling.
To those handing out the goodies, you have several options:
As usual, I’ve issued a curfew for Halloween - Trick or Tricking will end at 8 p.m.
Have fun and be safe.
All the best,

The village board, the village code enforcement officer and the attorney for the village have devoted much time to drafting a lighting law. We have reviewed laws in a number of municipalities, including the Town of Warwick; the City of Black Diamond, WA; and the Town of Charlestown, RI; and have discussed the issue with many people, including village residents. This is a complex issue and we appreciate your patience. Linked here [pdf] is the revised draft lighting law. The board will hold a public hearing on the proposed law at 7 p.m., Monday, January 28, 2019, at Village Hall. [view entire resolution] We welcome your comments.
