What is a Comprehensive Plan?
A Comprehensive Plan is a guidance document that sets goals, policies, and priorities for investing in the physical, economic, and environmental future of our Town.
Comprehensive Plans typically address a wide range of issues that are important to residents and business leaders. The Town of Greenwich’s current Comprehensive Plan provides an overall vision for the Town, with key priorities and strategies for achieving that vision. It provides goals and implementation strategies to guide the physical development of the Town.
Updating Comprehensive Plans allows communities to refresh the overall vision and update priorities and strategies in light of changing conditions, new challenges, and experience implementing the previous plan.
The 2004 Comprehensive Plan provides a vision for the next 10-15 years (through 2014-2019). As Greenwich continues to grow, we want to update the document to reflect the recently completed Greenwich Revitalization Plan and establish strategies to guide development in the town over the next 15 to 20 years.
The Town also submitted a grant application to the NYS Department of State to fund zoning updates recommended in the 2022 Greenwich Revitalization Plan. Updating the Comprehensive Plan to incorporate the Plan’s recommendation is a key next step to facilitate zoning updates in 2023.
The Town and Village have been working closely together on a variety of planning projects, most recently completing the joint Greenwich Revitalization Plan. Understanding their interconnected vision, goals, issues, and opportunities and the continued collaboration of the two communities, the Town and Village decided to prepare a joint Comprehensive Plan.

No. Greenwich first published a Comprehensive Plan in 1971. In 1989, the community revisited the plan, resulting in the creation of a Master Plan for future development. The 2004 Comprehensive Plan was an update to the 1989 plan.
The Update process is expected to take approximately 9-12 months to complete. To stay informed and learn about ways to participate:
This initiative is being directed by a Project Advisory Committee appointed by the Town Board and Village Board.
