Greenport Mayor Kevin Stuessi and the village’s Waterfront Advisory Committee are engaging the community in creating a Vision for Greenport, at a critical point in the evolution of the village.   

Two public forums will be held on Tuesday, June 13 and Thursday, July 6 at 6:30 pm at the North Fork Arts Center (Greenport’s movie theater at 211 Front Street). Working groups will share progress updates on waterfront, transportation and parking, and code changes.

The organizers view “Vision for Greenport” as an opportunity to foster robust community dialogue and creates a space for an open community forum for the sharing of input, recommendations and concerns.

Mayor Stuessi says he hopes to wrap up the ongoing development moratorium in three downtown zoning districts by Labor Day ,while work on the village’s Local Waterfront Revitalization Plan (LWRP) will continue through 2023. The mayor hopes the completed LWRP “will provide a master plan for Greenport Village and the necessary framework to apply for state and federal grants that will support long-overdue maintenance and improvements to essential village infrastructure and assets,” according to a press release issued by the village this week.
