Culvert Replacement on Sherow Road

The Dutchess County Department of Public Works will replace the culvert on County Route 73 (Sherow Road). The work is expected to start on September 18 and be complete by December.

Sherow Road will be closed for the duration of the project and a detour route will be posted. We understand this will cause an inconvenience and appreciate your patience while we work to replace this culvert.

Should you have any questions, please contact the Dutchess County Department of Public Works at (845) 486-2925. Thank you very much for your cooperation.

Survey: Defining Pleasant Valley’s Town Center

The Town of Pleasant Valley is exploring opportunities for enhancing its Town Center, specifically the area along United States Route 44 near West Road and North Avenue.

Through the creation of a compact, mixed-use built environment like a traditional small-town Main Street as described in the town’s zoning code, Pleasant Valley can inject vibrancy and life into its Town Center. This Town Center area would aim to instill a sense of community and place upon the mostly rural Town of Pleasant Valley.

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.
