Clinton Democratic Town Committee

Alan Kravitz – Planning and Zoning Commission

I have been involved in Planning and Zoning since I moved into Clinton in 2005. Before moving here from Nyack, NY, I served as a Member and Chairperson of the Planning Board and, subsequently, as a Member and Chairperson of the County’s Economic Development Agency. Before taking any of these appointed volunteer positions I co-founded a non-profit and non-partisan civic organization, Friends of the Nyacks, which is still in operation. It was and is still a place to bring your thoughts and ideas about how to improve our community, to find like minded people and to learn how to work together to make the ideas come to fruition: a place to get people engaged in community affairs and build organizational skills and gain insight into local politics. I’m recounting this part of my history because it speaks to my commitment to providing an open process that provides transparency and opportunity for public participation. I can also state that in all my efforts I have never supported or voted on any action where I had a Conflict of Interest and support the adoption and enforcement of strict standards in Clinton.

My professional training includes a Master’s in Regional Planning and the completion of all but the dissertation for a Ph.D in Planning as well as a B.A. in Economics and Urban Studies.
