Joint Public Hearing – April 18th, 2024

The Planning Board & the Conservation Board of the Town of Philipstown, New York will hold a joint public hearing on Thursday, April 18th, 2024 at the Planning Board’s regular monthly meeting starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Philipstown Town Hall, 238 Main St. Cold Spring, NY 10516 to consider the following application:

Garrison Golf Club PDD/Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, 2015 Route 9 Garrison, NY 10524 TM# 60.-1-59.2 & 59.3

Garrison Properties, LLC and HVSF (the “Applicant”) are requesting amendments to the Town of Philipstown’s Garrison Golf Club Planned Development District (GGCPDD – established 2005) and Rural Conservation District (RC) (the “Proposed Action”) to allow the relocation of HVSF from the Boscobel House and Gardens (also in Philipstown) to the Garrison Golf Club (2015 Route 9, Garrison, the “Site”). In addition to approval of the proposed amendments to the GGCPDD and RC districts from the Philipstown Town Board (recently granted), the Proposed Action also requires subdivision and site plan approval from the Philipstown Planning Board, and freshwater wetland permit approval from the Philipstown Conservation Board.

The Planning Board will be considering the proposed subdivision of the Site, as well as a Site Plan application for Phase 1 of the Site’s redevelopment.  Phase 1 includes the installation of the new open-air theater cluster, including the back of house, concessions, and the restrooms, and installation of the new main parking lot and proposed walkways and the service road to the theater. Associated grading, lighting, stormwater management and utility infrastructure will be provided to serve the above improvements. Phase 1 will also include intersection improvements at the access driveways and a new traffic signal at Route 9 and Snake Hill Road. Commencement of the signal work is contingent upon approval of the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT).

The Conservation Board will be considering an application for a Freshwater Wetland Permit necessary for all proposed improvements proximate to Town-regulated wetlands/watercourses and their respective buffers. These activities are limited to Phase 1 of the project and include excavation for reconstruction of the existing Route 9 entry, placement of suitable soil over former Greens 13 & 14, installation of additional paving to improve the Route 9 entry, and installation of water main, dry hydrant, electric panel and subsurface electric service line near and along the upper Snake Hill Road entry in the vicinity of the on-site pond.

The application materials on the project are available in hard copy format at the Office of the Planning & Conservation Boards at the Building Department, 2 Cedar Street, Cold Spring, NY. Prior contact with Cheryl Rockett is required to arrange access to the documents, at (845) 265-5202. The most recent materials may also be viewed in electronic format on the Town of Philipstown’s website at the following links:

Submissions can be found under each monthly meeting agenda.
