We have recently updated our master plan which is an important document outlining the future of the Town. The Town of Crawford maintains some of the strictest zoning in Orange County with a priority on open space and large lots. Commercial growth is confined to the hamlets of Pine Bush and to a lesser extent Bullville. I fully support our maintaining our traditional values and way of life while supporting our small business owners who contribute to our various events and organizations.
