Village of Pleasantville Adopts Comprehensive Plan

Pleasantville Comprehensive Plan |January 9, 2017 | January 9, 2017

BFJ Planning was retained by the Village of Pleasantville to update its Master Plan, with a primary focus on the Central Business District. The Village was interested in building on the economic development potential of key downtown assets such as its Metro-North train station, the Jacob Burns Film Center and municipally owned land, while preserving Pleasantville’s small-scale character and quality of life. The Plan was prepared in close cooperation with the Village Board, who took an active role in drafting the Plan’s content and recommendations, and also incorporated an interactive public outreach process. Key recommendations included downtown zoning revisions and intersection improvements to enhance walkability and create new public open space.
