About the Report

Supervisor Mark Figliozzi commissioned this significant analysis and thanks to consistent representation at various Dutchess County meetings, where he sought to advocate for the future development of the Town of Pleasant Valley, Dutchess County officials recognized Supervisor Figliozzi’s efforts on behalf of the Town by funding this vital first step toward creating a community vision for the future. This document encompasses the socio-economic data, community characteristics, goals to create a more walkable community, future infrastructure needs, design parameters, housing evaluation, services, businesses needed and a host of additional observations and recommendations. The Town hopes to move as quickly as possible on developing the Hamlet Plan and utilizing the recommendations to obtain State grant funds to pay for implementation of the goals established in future community visioning sessions.

“We are most fortunate to have this study and I am grateful to Dutchess County in providing the funding for this professional and comprehensive study. It is most valuable in laying the foundation for planning enhancements to the Hamlet of Pleasant Valley,” Supervisor Figliozzi said.
