The Town of Wappinger has taken a significant step in curbing over-development with the adoption of historic legislation.
The town supervisor and town board passed the measure on Monday, marking a decisive move to address concerns about excessive development.
Under this new legislation, a moratorium will be imposed on the construction of large-scale multifamily housing developments. This proactive measure aims to control the pace and scale of development in the town.
It's important to note that while this action restricts future large-scale housing projects, it does not impede or halt all current projects and applications already in progress.
