The Athens Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee spent the past year updating the previous Plan adopted in 2007. Through public meetings and a community-wide survey, the Committee worked to learn about current conditions and needs in the Town and Village, to update the long-range vision and goals for the community, and to identify actions and strategies needed. The Plan reflects community input including almost 500 responses to a community-wide survey. A public hearing hosted by the Committee was held on November 12, 2020. Now, the Town and Village Boards are reviewing the document and holding their own hearing. All residents and property owners are encouraged to review the plan and offer comments.
The draft Plan is available for review on the Town’s website at www.townofathensny.com and the Village’s website at www.athensvillageny.com/planning-documents/. A paper copy of the plan is available for review or purchase (with advance notice) at the Town and Village offices, 2 First Street, Athens, NY 10 am to 2 pm. Written comments related to the Draft Plan will be accepted by the Town and Village through 5:00 PM on December 3, 2020.
