Enhance the aesthetic quality of the hamlets

Goal 28. Enhance the aesthetic quality of the hamlets

Design guide­lines should be devel­oped for the Chap­paqua ham­let, and the design guide­lines estab­lished for the Mill­wood ham­let in 1993 (and revised in 1999) should be updat­ed, if nec­es­sary. Guide­lines should uti­lize LEED-ND stan­dards or oth­er sus­tain­able design prac­tices for sig­nage, street frontage, win­dows, awnings, build­ing col­or and mate­ri­als, and street archi­tec­ture. In addi­tion, the fea­si­bil­i­ty of cre­at­ing a main­te­nance dis­trict in the ham­lets for both aes­thet­ic and infra­struc­tur­al upkeep should be assessed.
