It is important to maintain a open door policy in our city where everyone is welcome and treated equally. Listening to our residents and business owners concerns and ideas helps to identify new opportunities and address issues which builds community and a better quality of life in our city. Building partnerships with our school district and other agencies within the city gets work done without duplicating the effort or expense and builds a inclusive environment.
It is important to have fair and affordable housing for everyone. While we are experiencing a growth in residential development and we welcome new residents, it is important to make sure that our current residents can continue to afford to live in our city. We are encouraging new developers to consider all income levels in their projects. Our most recent completed housing development provides housing for all income levels and has proven to be a successful model.

Making sure all the people of Peekskill are represented fairly and continue to expand our Climate Smart City green initiatives including repairing old buildings, identifying and replacing old infrastructure, building a community solar project, growing the tax levy, and building on our current collaborations between the city and the school district.
We are proud Peekskill has a significant amount of good affordable housing for seniors, workforce and those in need. We continue to encourage development of residential housing, which includes affordable units. In fact, another large residential project with mixed levels of affordability is currently underway. Adequate housing is a growing concern throughout the county and country and we are committed to serving that need in Peekskill.
