On Tuesday, Jan. 24, the Cold Spring Village Board unanimously endorsed all six principles for riverfront development that are detailed in Scenic Hudson's Revitalizing Hudson Riverfronts handbook and agreed that the principles should be reflected in the newly adopted village comprehensive plan. According to, Cold Spring intends "to support mixed-use development that is compact and is site-sensitive in building design; in close proximity to transportation hubs where infrastructure exists; is publicly accessible; preserves open space, scenic views and critical environmental areas; and develops a sense of place."

"We're delighted that Cold Spring has joined the City of Beacon in formally embracing the principles in the guide," said Scenic Hudson Director of Land Use Advocacy Jeff Anzevino. "And we're eager to work with other riverfront communities as they plan for a prosperous, sustainable future."

First published in 2010, Revitalizing Hudson Riverfronts illustrates specific conservation and development strategies for creating environmentally and economically healthy communities along the Hudson. Electronic copies of the guide are available as a free download (PDF, 6.1MB).
