Project Overview


This report has been prepared for the Mayor, Deputy Mayor, and Board of Trustees of the Village of Brewster (New York), in connection with their current effort to update the Village’s master plan of 1991. This effort is being made pursuant to the obligations that the Village must comply with under the following documents:


  • The Final Rules and Regulations for the Protection from Contamination, Degradation and Pollution of the New York City Water Supply and its Sources, effective as of May 1, 1997;
  • The Watershed Memorandum of Agreement executed between New York City, New York State, over 70 counties, towns and villages in the Croton watershed, environmentalists, the State Departments of Health and Environmental Conservation, and the USEPA, effective as of January 21, 1997; and
  • The Agreement Concerning the Reconstruction of the Brewster Wastewater Treatment Plant, executed between the New York City Department of Environmental Protection and the Village of Brewster in 2000.

    This plan seeks to enhance this community, consistent with the watershed protection mandates that derive from the documents previously mentioned. These recommendations were developed upon extensive research and analysis of subsequent findings.




    Research was conducted on the existing conditions of the Village of Brewster in these areas: Demographics, Economic and Community Development, Natural Environment and Infrastructure, Built Environment, Zoning and Land Use, and Governance. The main findings in each area are the following:




    Although predominantly white, the Village of Brewster’s population has a sizeable Hispanic immigrant population that has increased exponentially over the last ten years. This trend is not present in the Town of Southeast or in Putnam County, which still have a majority white population. The main employer of Village residents is the construction industry, followed by the professional, scientific and management industries. Median household income for 2000 in the Village was less than that of Town of Southeast and Putnam County residents. The majority of housing units in the Village of Brewster are renter occupied.


    Economic and Community Development


    Food services, miscellaneous store retailers, and consignment and antique shops constitute the majority of the business establishments located on Main Street, which is the center of economic activity in the Village. However, there are vacant storefronts in this area. Professional, scientific, and technical services are predominant among the businesses not located on Main Street. Commuters make up the majority of the Village of Brewster workforce, which is also composed of immigrant laborers, professionals that work in the Village, and small business owners.


    Natural Environment and Infrastructure


    By entering into the contract with the New York City (NYC) Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), the Village assumed ownership and full responsibility for the efficient operation of an updated Brewster wastewater treatment plant, and agreed to constant monitoring by the NYC DEP. The consideration due by the NYC DEP under this agreement only covers construction and certain capped O&M costs. Hence, the contract is not intended to produce any financial gain or loss to the Village.


    The Village of Brewster is a well-established transportation node that is accessible by car, since it is a crossroads of various state and inter-state traffic systems, and by rail. The main challenges faced by the Village in regards to transportation infrastructure are the following:


  • Improve traffic and parking conditions, especially in its train station area;
  • Benefit from the regional plans for the expansion of rail transportation services;
  • Obtain and manage funds that ensure adequate improvement, operation, and maintenance of its streets and roadways;
  • Ensure adequate traffic control and policing; and
  • Channel the economic potential of its transportation infrastructure for the benefit of the Village.

    Built Environment


    The Village of Brewster’s assets are its wealth of open space, topography, walkable scale, and transportation infrastructure, and the presence of a significant number of historic properties for such a small community. The Village can capitalize on these assets by making its circulation scheme more pedestrian than car-oriented, eliminating barriers that hinder pedestrian access to all areas of the Village, and creating more cohesion among its historic properties.


    Zoning and Land Use


    The Village of Brewster has very few undeveloped parcels remaining in its territory. The majority of land uses conform to the Village’s zoning regulations, with residential-single family use being predominant, followed by open space and outdoor recreation and residential multi-family uses.


    The Village of Brewster Zoning Ordinance, originally adopted in 1970, was updated in April of 1999 to implement changes that were recommended in the 1990 Village of Brewster Master Plan.  The major portion of the Village is designated as R-75 single-family and two-family residential zones.  Additionally, the Village currently has three different business districts, a residential conservation district, a conservation district, and one industrial district.




    The Village of Brewster has full legal capacity to carry on its purpose and functions and exercise its “home rule” powers. However, Village decisions on real estate development must be cognizant of the 240,000 gallon per day limitation on wastewater flows, pursuant to the contract with the DEP. Furthermore, the Village’s actions are hindered by a pressing budgetary situation caused by an imbalance between low tax revenues and a great need for investment in physical infrastructure.




    The analysis of key focus areas within the research findings is the basis for the final set of recommendations for the Village of Brewster. Three overarching themes were derived from this analysis:


  • The Village’s role in conservation, dynamic diversity, and sense of place make it a distinct location.
  • The challenges posed by its political situation at the regional level and the need for physical, social, and economic revitalization make the Village a complex community.
  • The environmental opportunities, human capital, and identity formation around its walkable scale provide the Village’s potential.

    The following vision for the Village of Brewster takes into consideration the overall findings of the existing conditions and was adopted by the Village Board in the Summer of 2003:


    An historic community about an hour north of New York City, the Village of Brewster is in the midst of a dramatic renaissance.  New water and sewer lines, artful renovations of classic homes and buildings, pedestrian-friendly streets and a scenic setting will make Brewster a vital 21st-Century business and cultural destination.  Where else in five minutes can you walk to a fine library, a fast commuter train and a world-class trout stream?


    To fully realize Brewster’s rich future, residents must make the most of unique blend of rural and modern assets.  With accessible, small-town government and strong community spirit, the Village embraces its role as an environmental steward of the Croton Reservoir System.  Simultaneously, citizen groups carefully evaluate and integrate state-of-the-art communication and transportation systems to ensure Brewster’s long-term role as the economic hub of the entire Harlem Valley.




    This section summarizes the main recommendations proposed to the Village.


    Urban Design


    At the Main Street level, it is recommended that the Village implement a “three nodes” design, zoning amendments, and physical improvements along the length of Main Street to enliven and beautify the entire corridor, and make it more pedestrian-friendly. Each node would serve a separate function, working as attractors to draw people to and from each center of activity. These nodes are the “Brewster Triangle”, a civic center, and a laborer employment center.


    At the Village level, it is recommended that the Village make vertical connections to enhance pedestrian accessibility throughout the Village, especially connecting important points north and south of Main Street. This would allow residents and visitors to experience the Village's scenic beauty, as well as the “small town” feel the Village has to offer.


    It is also recommended that the Village connect its historic properties to create a cohesive group of structures that can be enjoyed by residents and visitors, and also generate revenue for the Village. Watershed education can be carried out through the implementation of these connections.


    At the Regional level, it is recommended that the Village create stronger physical connections with the region, for example, through the establishment of bicycle/pedestrian paths that link to the regional network. This can enhance access to and around the Village, help to establish it as a regional cycling destination, and increase use of the Village’s commercial and retail services.




    At the Main Street level, it is recommended that the Village create a civic center where the Village and Town of Southeast offices can co-locate. This would allow better access and improve communication between the community and their local governments. The Village and the Town would also take an important step in improving their political relationship and cooperating to achieve goals that are mutually beneficial.


    At the Village level, it is recommended that the Village implement political participation mechanisms to improve communication between the community and the Village administration. It is also recommended that the Village improve the working relationship between the Board of Trustees, the Planning Board, and the Zoning Board of Appeals. This will maintain a balance of power in regards to planning, land use, and zoning decisions within the Village.


    At the Regional level, it is recommended that the Village explore opportunities for greater cooperation with the Town of Southeast, for example, to comply with the mandates that are applicable to both parties as protectors of the Croton watershed, to improve the existing tax structure between the two governments, and to provide services jointly. Improving this relationship can reap more benefits to the Village than maintaining a contentious one with the Town of Southeast.


    It is also recommended that the Village acknowledge the full legal and community participation implications of its agreement with the DEP, especially in view of the financial liabilities that can derive from an inefficient operation of the updated Brewster wastewater treatment plant. Finally it is recommended that the Village explore opportunities for regional watershed cooperation. This can benefit the Village with the positive effects that derive from participating in joint environmental protection efforts, as well as increased technical and financial assistance, education, and training.


    Economic and Community Development


    At the Main Street level, it is recommended that the Village foster community participation and inclusion through programs like the creation of an open-air market on Main Street or the provision of education and outreach programs and activities at the laborer employment center. This has the potential to integrate the Village’s ethnically diverse community while promoting workforce development and generating economic growth for the Village.


    At the Village level, it is recommended that the Village generate community interaction through cultural events and activities.


    It is also recommended that the Village promote community wide cultural activities that, for example, showcase Village residents’ ethnic backgrounds and traditions. This would contribute greatly to the sense of community in the Village and generate economic growth. Other activities like the creation of a monthly volunteer day can also promote environmental awareness among Village residents.




    At the Main Street level, it is recommended that the Village amend its current zoning regulations to promote this area’s charm and pedestrian friendliness. Amendments include the relaxation of off-street parking and loading requirements for certain areas, the inclusion of sidewalk and street-wall requirements, and the reconsideration of density and bulk requirements along Main Street. This would allow for development and economic growth in the Main Street Area.


    At the Village level, it is recommended that the Village amend its current zoning regulations to create a desirable destination for commuters and visitors alike through the promotion of pedestrian accessibility, a revitalized commercial district, family-friendly and well maintained residential neighborhoods and good environmental stewardship of the Croton Watershed.




    At the Village level, it is recommended that the Village keep Main Street open to two-way traffic, add a roundabout to the intersection of North Main and Route 6, and ban vehicular traffic in the alley behind Town Hall (intersection of Main Street and Railroad Avenue). This will enhance traffic and pedestrian circulation and safety conditions in the Village, as well as benefit businesses in the Main Street area. It is also recommended that the Village conduct an in-depth legal, financial, market, and design analysis prior to the construction of a proposed parking structure to be located in the area east of Railroad Avenue, south of Main Street.




    At the Village level, it is recommended that the Village raise parking fees, reassess water rates, and implement an impervious surface fee as well as tradable water rights. This can increase the Village’s ratables and also encourage water conservation and the reduction of impervious surfaces in the Village. It is also recommended that the Village explore other governance alternatives to increase using the appropriate guidance and expert support from the available governmental resources. Finally, it is recommended that the Village implement a capital improvement plan to allocate its limited financial resources and meet its infrastructure development, refurbishment, operation, and maintenance needs effectively.




    A matrix has been developed to establish a broad “implementation schedule” of the recommendations that have been made for the Village of Brewster. This matrix is structured on the following categories:


  • Action contingent on improved relationship with the Town of Southeast;
  • Immediate action;
  • Further analysis and research;
  • Action contingent on funding; and
  • Action contingent on another activity.

    Implementation was further discussed in the Analysis and Recommendations committee, resulting in a timeline that begins to divide recommendations made by the citizen committees into short term, intermediate term, and long term categories.



    Each spring, the Urban Planning Department of the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, conducts an intensive, team-based Studio.  The Urban Planning Studio is designed to give Urban Planning graduate students an intensive, hands-on, planning practice experience.  The Studio focuses on the requirements of  “real-world” clients and “real-world” planning issues, using a team approach for problem solving around these issues.  Urban PlanningFaculty direct and advise the student team.

  • The Studio team must work together with the Studio client and faculty to define the scope of work, planning approach, and work plan for the project. The Studio also conducts primary field research, analyses findings, develops policy and planning recommendations, and prepares several deliverables for the client. 


    Our client for the Village of Brewster planning Studio is the Village Board of Trustees (comprised of the Mayor and the four Trustees).  We have been asked by our client to support them in assessing appropriate planning activities for the Village, consistent with the mandate for protection of the New York City watershed.


    Team Members


    The Studio team is comprised of eight Columbia University graduate students pursuing Master of Science Degrees in Urban Planning, as well two faculty advisors and a graduate teaching assistant. The staff of J. Robert Folchetti & Associates, L.L.C, was also instrumental in providing assistance to the Studio team.


    Studio Goal and Objectives


    The goal and objectives of the Studio team were determined at the beginning of the process, through a collaborative effort of students participating in the Studio, with the purpose of guiding our work throughout the semester. 


    Understanding the mandate for watershed protection, we will develop for the Village of Brewster a set of recommendations that can be used to enhance their community.


  • To analyze demographic trends within the Village of Brewster and the surrounding areas.
  • To examine public service programs available to the Village of Brewster residents, particularly within the realm of workforce development and housing.
  • To assess the status of the Village of Brewster business community, with special attention to determine the business activities that best meet the needs of the constituency.
  • To research and analyze existing environmental conditions and infrastructure as they pertain to watershed protection, taking into consideration New York City Department of Environmental Protection watershed regulations and development pressures in and near the Village of Brewster.
  • To gain an understanding of the unique character of the built environment, and to use this knowledge towards enhancing the quality of life within the Village of Brewster. To furthermore assess the built environment with particular reference to urban design, parks, open space, and historic assets.
  • To assess current issues concerning transportation, water, sewerage, waste management and utilities within the Village, with particular reference to the expansion of the sewer system.
  • To evaluate current and future growth and development conditions with in the Village of Brewster, by analyzing Village zoning, land use, and housing characteristics.
  • To diagnose the current legal, budgetary, and political situation of the Village of Brewster, with particular reference to understanding its power of annexation and the implementation of a co-terminus governance.

    Methods of Research

    Studio Organization

    Given the preceding goal and objectives, the Studio team organized into eight teams to facilitate data collection and analysis of our findings.  The Studio organization is shown on the chart below.

    Planning Approach

    The Studio team approached the Planning Studio using a comprehensive, communicative planning model.  The approach utilized is comprehensive as illustrated in the wide range of planning issues researched. The approach is communicative in that the Studio members interviewed many constituents in an effort to understand the needs and preferences of all concerned parties.

    Primary Sources

    On-site data collection

    Over the course of a three-month period, Studio members traveled to Brewster on more than ten separate occasions to conduct surveys and gather personal observations.  Data collection included primary and comparative collection, dependent on whether or not the data already existed.  Surveys and data collection included several walking trips, a business survey, a traffic count, and a land use survey.

    Interviews were conducted to gain empirical data and personal opinions about issues relating to the Village of Brewster.  The Studio interviewed a wide range of people.  Secondary sources were used to confirm specific information obtained through the interview where possible and as time permitted. 


    Both phone and in-person interviews were performed.  Notes taken during the interviews were transcribed and sent to interviewees for approval.  Selection of the interview candidates was determined through recommendations by our clients and other individuals, as well as through individual research.

    Secondary Sources

    Secondary sources of research included analysis of documents, reports and other materials.  In particular, the Studio team utilized the 1999 Rodgers & McCauley, Inc., Saccardi & Schiff, Downtown Revitalization Plan for Historic Brewster, and the 1990 Buckhurst Fish Hutton Katz Inc. and Jacquemart Associates Inc., Village of Brewster Master Plan. Geographic Information Systems data, provided by John Folchetti, were used as an analytical and presentation tool in the creation of maps. 

    Recommendations Development

    In March 2003, the Studio team presented a midterm briefing before the Board of Trustees and the public.  The briefing highlighted the progress of the Studio, and served as a platform for feedback from the client and public.  Incorporating the feedback from Village Officials, the Studio team analyzed the primary and secondary source information, and through a collaborative effort with advisement from the faculty members, produced the recommendations included in this document. 

    The Report

    The report is divided into three sections: Existing Conditions, Analysis, and Recommendations.  The existing conditions presents our findings of the current situation within the Village of Brewster in the areas of Demographics, Economic and Community Development, Environment and Infrastructure, Zoning and Land Use, Built Environment, and Governance.  From these findings, we performed an analysis in order to understand the assets and the possibilities within the Village.  This analysis was then used to inform the Studio team’s recommendations, which can be found in the last section of the report. 

    Historical Background

    The Village of Brewster, incorporated in 1894, physically lies within the Town of Southeast (itself incorporated by the State of New York in 1788). Walter Brewster, a local builder and speculator, initially founded the Village in the 1840s. In 1848, Brewster and his brother James purchased a 134-acre farm that comprised much of what is now the Village of Brewster, motivated by the prospect of nearby mines, an abundant water supply, and the certainty that the Harlem Line Railroad had plans to pass through the already incorporated Town of Southeast (Howe 4). With the hopes of getting the burgeoning rail line to make a stop on their land, the two brothers constructed passenger and freight stations on their farm. [1] By 1849, the Harlem Line indeed came to reach “Brewster’s Station.”


    At the time the Brewster family purchased the farm, there were only a few houses and a Methodist Church already in the area. A one-room schoolhouse was built soon thereafter. In 1849, Walter Brewster himself laid out Main Street Brewster. A skilled builder, Brewster was responsible for the construction of over 50 buildings, churches and stores in the new village, facilitated by the advent of the railroad, which made large shipments of materials possible. Building homes at the rate of six or seven structures a year, the first house Brewster erected was the Walter Brewster House in 1850, still standing at 43 Oak Street (Howe 59). Growth in the Village progressed rapidly, soon gaining hotels and other business establishments. By the 1890s, Brewster’s thriving businesses included three dry goods and grocery stores, an active coal business, a tin shop, the newspaper printing press, The Southeast House and Brewster House, a wagon-making and blacksmith shop on East Main, and one barber  (Howe 17). 


    The railroad furthermore helped to foster two local industries, iron mining and dairy. Although neither industry remains in function today, at the height of its operation in 1879, the largest and most prosperous mine in Southeast, two miles north of the Village, (Tilly Foster Mine) yielded 7,000 tons of iron ore per month. [2] In 1864, John Gail Borden constructed a milk condensery (The Borden Milk Factory), founded as a result of increased demand for condensed milk during the Civil War (Howe 16). The dairy industry, itself, brought many new families to the Village, giving an impetus for the building of even more homes (Howe 5). It was a place for local farmer’s to sell their milk and the Village Main Street became a place for workers to spend their paychecks (Howe 15). John G. Borden, the son of the factory’s founder, over his life contributed much to the building costs of the Brewster school, the Town Hall and the Baptist Church (Howe 16).


    By the 1870s, the Village of Brewster was at thriving community. A national bank had been established, newspapers were founded (the Brewster Gazette in 1869 and the Brewster Standard in 1871), and several industries, both large and small, were running. In the later part of the 19th century, the construction of the Croton Reservoir System had significant repercussions on the economy and the landscape of both Southeast and the Village of Brewster. Much of the best farmland was flooded for construction of the dams, including the Borden Milk Factory Dairy Lands, while many other properties were condemned in order to protect the purity of the watershed. [3] This cast a lull over the life in the Village, causing farmers to look elsewhere to take their milk, many even going out of business (Howe 84). To this day, growth restrictions and other regulations related to the Croton Reservoir System continue to have a serious impact on planning in the Village of Brewster.



    Chapter 3. DEMOGRAPHICS

    An analysis of demographic conditions within the Village of Brewster provides a setting for understanding existing Village characteristics and future trends that will enable the Studio team to make well-informed recommendations consistent with the needs of the Brewster community. [1] While demographics can give us insight into the community fabric, they also enable us to compare trends and conditions within the municipality to those of its surrounding context. Looking at demographic information on the local, town and county levels, we are then able to answer questions such as whether issues faced by the Village are unique to its community, or whether they fall within the general pattern of the region. Additionally, an analysis of demographic change over the years provides us with answers to questions such as whether conditions exist in the Village that were not present in the past, and whether such changes suggest trends for the future that would help inform better planning decisions. To begin answering these questions, the Studio looked at information from both the 1990 and the 2000 US Census, to try and assess what trends have occurred, and which might continue in the future.


    To conduct the demographic study, the Studio team looked at over 30 categories provided by both the 1990 and 2000 US Census, at three levels of scope (local, town and county). The categories selected were determined by the demographics team to paint a broad spectrum of population characteristics within the Village. Additionally, due to the sizeable immigrant population in the Village, many of the selected categories, such as linguistic isolation and country of origin, were specifically targeted to gain a better understanding of the needs of this population. The spectrum of demographics examined in this study cut across a number of broader categories, which include:


    ·      Population & Gender

    ·      Age

    ·      Race & Ethnicity (Hispanic or Latino)

    ·      Nationality and Country of Origin

    ·      Household Type, Size & Relationship

    ·      Language Spoken & Linguistic Isolation

    ·      Housing Units, Tenure & Cost

    ·      Work & Industry

    ·      Educational Attainment

    ·      Income & Poverty



    Our analysis of data provided by the U.S. Census Bureau illustrated that the demographic conditions within the Village of Brewster are indeed distinct from the surrounding town and county. These findings suggest that whereas cooperation between local and regional entities is essential, the specific needs of the Brewster population differ greatly from its surrounding context. Our comparison of data from both the 1990 and 2000 U.S. Census indicate that the population differences between Brewster and its surrounding areas are a relatively recent phenomenon. Thus, the possibility of continued trends must be closely considered when making recommendations for the Village future. Detailed tables of the demographic information, including 1990 and 2000 data on the levels of the Village of Brewster, the Town of Southeast and Putnam County, can be found in Appendices 1 and 2. Below is a summary of key findings from the demographic study that the Studio team determined to be most indicative of the character of the Village of Brewster.

    General Population Characteristics

    The demographic study of the composition of the Village population indicates that there is in fact a sizeable immigrant presence in the Village that is not present in the Town of Southeast, or in Putnam County. This indicates that planning for population needs on the Village level is a different undertaking than general planning for either the Town or County.

    Population and Gender

    • In Census 2000, the total population of the Village of Brewster was 2,162 people.
    • 57 percent are males, compared with 43 percent females, indicating that there are 290 more males than females within the Village.
    • In contrast, gender composition in both the Town of Southeast (population 17,316) and Putnam County (population 95,745) indicate breakdowns of nearly 50 percent males to 50 percent females. Furthermore, the demographics show that at the time of the 1990 Census, this 50/50 gender split was evident at all three levels of scope, indicating a rapid change in gender demographics within the Village of Brewster, that did not occur throughout the town or county levels.
      • The median age [2] in the Village of Brewster was 33 years, with a 6-year discrepancy reported between the median age among females (36 years) and the median age among males (30 years). 
      • In contrast, the median age for both Putnam County and the Town of Southeast was reported as approximately 37 years, with one and two year respective discrepancies reported between male and female median ages (see Table 3-1 Median age by Sex, 2000).
        • The Village of Brewster was only 79 percent white, with the second largest race group, the “some other race alone” category, comprising
          12 percent of the population. [4]
        • At the time of the 2000 Census, both Putnam County and the Town of Southeast were more than 90 percent white with regards to race.
        • 32 percent of the Village of Brewster population (694 people) identified themselves as Hispanic or Latino in 2000.
        • Similarly, whereas Putnam County and Southeast were only 6 and 8 percent Hispanic or Latino in composition.
          • The Village of Brewster reported a slightly higher population of 9 percent – still significantly lower than the 32 percent Hispanic or Latino population reported in 2000.
            • In 1990, at all three levels, recorded populations that were approximately 95 percent white in race. Both Putnam County and Southeast were recorded as slightly higher than 2.5 percent Hispanic or Latino, This represents a 500% increase in Hispanic population for the Village of Brewster over the course of 10 years, another indicator of a relatively recent and sizeable immigrant community.
            • Table 3 2 Racial Distribution, 2000

          Differences among the study areas were far less pronounced in the 1990 Census for these categories, indicating a change in racial and ethic composition in the Village of Brewster that is not representative of the general region.
