NEWBURGH, N.Y. -- What might the City of Newburgh look like in 2040?

The Regional Plan Association released its fourth regional plan for New York and New Jersey, citing Newburgh as a flagship place and lays out its vision for the city's future.

The group sees the city with a thriving business and culture scene, taking advantage of its location on the Hudson, historic urban fabric, proximity to freight and highway infrastructure and ferry access to the Metro North railroad in Beacon.

"A now vibrant downtown features affordable housing, live-work artist spaces, tech startups, and light-industrial manufacturing," the report said. "On sunny days, families stroll along 'Green Streets' linking city parks with surrounding natural areas, including the Quassaick Creek blue/green corridor.

To achieve these goals, the city will need to improve its digital infrastructure, make partnerships with Mount St. Mary College and St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital and upgrade public transportation.
