Thank you for taking our survey!

The Town of Poughkeepsie, guided by the Comprehensive Plan Review Committee (CPRC), is preparing a comprehensive plan update which identifies a future vision for the Town, and provides the policy recommendations to make that vision a reality.  To make sure the plan is based on the needs and preferences of residents and stakeholders in Town, we are asking that you take a few minutes to fill out this survey

This survey is open to anyone who lives, works or goes to school in the Town of Poughkeepsie! Additionally, more than one person in your household can take this survey.

The CPRC will also be holding  public workshops to gather additional information – you can find information on the comprehensive plan and schedule at: https://townofpoughkeepsie.com/planning/cprc/index.html
