Underway in Irvington

Irvington’s 2017 Comprehensive Plan is underway. The committee had its first meeting with the public to discuss the process of the 2017 plan update in mid-February.

In speaking with Larry Schopfer, the Village’s Administrator, and Mark Gilliland, a Village Trustee who is the liaison to the Traffic Calming Committee headed by Walter Montgomery, it is apparent that education matters not only with drivers but for feet on the street as well.
