Business Development Advisory Committee

Mission Statement: The Business Development Advisory Committee will be responsible for giving general direction to the Town Board, including but not limited to making recommendations with respect to the following:

  • Attracting and retaining a more diverse range of businesses, particularly with respect to the mix of retail uses, to reinforce our business hamlets as vibrant and unique destinations for shopping, entertainment and social activities;
  • Ensuring that any future development of Chappaqua Crossing proceeds in a manner that complements the retail uses in our existing business hamlets;
  • Exploring how the Town can encourage and promote the development of new amenities and uses, such as a performing arts or community center;
  • Working to increase the commercial tax base;
  • Streamlining the approval process for new businesses and create a more business-friendly environment for existing businesses; and
  • Working with existing landlords to find tenants that will fill needs and increase the variety of retail uses.
