Municipal and land planning in Putnam County
Town of Cortlandt Sustainable Master Plan
Adopted in 2016, Envision Cortlandt is the first sustainable comprehensive plan guiding an economically, environmentally, and socially sustainable future for the Town of Cortlandt in Westchester County, New York. AKRF prepared a successful Consolidated Funding Application grant under the NYSERDA Cleaner, Greener Communities Program for the plan, and worked closely with the Town and stakeholders in focusing the plan on mixed-use downtown areas, waterfront revitalization, transit-oriented development, and medical-oriented development. We met monthly with the Master Plan Committee to establish the goals, policies, and metrics that formed the basis of Envision Cortlandt, and helped guide the development of principles representing the core elements of the Town’s vision for sustainability. AKRF also led public outreach and designed the Envision Cortlandt logo.
