Establish Peekskill as a regional arts, cultural, and dining destination, with a diverse range of offerings that support tourism as well as local jobs.

 

Enhance the attractiveness of the downtown environment for residents and visitors alike, through improvements to streetscapes, public spaces, wayfinding and parking signage, and overall aesthetics.
