Newfield Hamlet Revitalization Project!!

The Town of Newfield Planning Board has partnered with the Cornell Design Connect program to begin the initial phase of a Newfield Hamlet Revitalization Plan (NEWHARP), the purpose of which is to develop a plan to encourage a walkable, attractive, vital hamlet downtown by evaluating design improvements for key items such as streetscapes and safe mobility planning.

We invite you to complete a survey that Design Connect has prepared to obtain community input into this initiative:

Please feel free to forward this link to other family members and friends who are residents or property owners within the Town of Newfield so that we may hear their thoughts!   The survey will be open until approximately April 12.

The Town of Newfield Planning Board was created in 2007 and consists of volunteer members appointed by the Town Board. The purpose of the Planning Board is to “protect the health, safety and general welfare of the community, and to facilitate planning for transportation, water and sewer improvements, drainage, schools, parks and recreation through the use of comprehensive planning.” 

Design Connect is a multi-disciplinary, student-run, community design organization based at Cornell University. Formed in 2008, Design Connect provides design and planning services for local municipalities and non-profits that may not have the resources to hire professionals while offering practical experience to students.

Please contact the below for any questions.  We appreciate your assistance.
