A comprehensive plan sets forth a vision and goals for a municipality’s future, and provides the overall foundation for all land use regulation in the municipality. State law encourages all cities to prepare and implement a comprehensive municipal plan. The Philmont Comprehensive Plan will outline the vision and goals of the community through 2040.

A comprehensive plan is an expression of the community’s vision for the future and a strategic map to reach that vision. Comprehensive planning is an important tool for municipalities to guide future development of land to ensure a safe, pleasant, just, and economical environment for residential, commercial, industrial, and public activities. Planning can help:

  • Preserve important natural resources and other open lands
  • Create the opportunity for residents to participate in guiding a community’s future
  • Identify issues, stay ahead of trends, and accommodate change
  • Ensure that growth makes the community better, not just bigger
  • Foster sustainable economic development that benefits all residents
  • Ensure more efficient and cost-effective infrastructure and public services
  • Provide an opportunity to consider future implications of today’s decisions
  • Protect property rights and values
  • Enable other public and private entities to plan their activities in harmony with the municipality’s plans

The Future Philmont Comprehensive Plan Update is funded with grants from the Hudson River Valley Greenway (HRVG), and the NYS Smart Growth Program Grant.


Phase 1 of the planning process will focus on visioning for the future of Philmont. This is primarily supported by the HRVG grant and in-kind contributions from the Village in the form of Comprehensive Plan Committee members’ time and contributions to the planning process.


Phase 2 will focus on the preparation of the Comprehensive Plan, funded by the NYS Smart Growth Program. The Village’s consulting planner, Laberge Group, is assisting in the completion of both phases, and is reimbursed directly through the grant funds.
