Understanding the dynamic nature of our town and the importance of staying current with environmental, economic, and social shifts, Forestport is committed to crafting a CMP that embodies its residents’ vision for a prosperous and sustainable future. “The updated Comprehensive Master Plan will serve as a blueprint for growth that not only respects our rich history but also embraces the opportunities of tomorrow,” stated TJ Entwistle, Town Supervisor.
