Stuyvesant is located in the northwest corner of Columbia County on the eastern bank of the Hudson River. It is bordered by Rensselaer County to the north, the Town of Kinderhook to the east, and the Town of Stockport to the south.
A town of approximately 2,300 people, Stuyvesant is an agricultural community dotted with single family residences and small businesses. The predominance of farming within the community has left its rural character much the same as it's been for over the last 100 years. Stuyvesant's bucolic landscape belies the fact that it is located less than 20 miles south of the state capital of Albany, New York. Centrally located in the state and the region, the town is approximately two and a half hours from both New York City and Boston.

Two years ago a "Zoning Revision Committee" was established to review the Town's Zoning Ordinance. The Committee, Chaired by Councilwoman Kelley Williams, is staffed by members of the community, the Planning Board, and the Zoning Board. After making their proposed edits, public information meetings were held with the full Town Board, Planning Board, Zoning Board, Assessor's Office, and Code Enforcement Officer. Following the meetings and comments, a newly revised Proposed Zoning Law has been completed. The link below will bring you to a PDF document to download for your review.
