A Message from Supervisor Ryan Courtien:
Welcome to the Town of Dover, a township that comprises Wingdale and Dover Plains, located in Eastern Dutchess County, New York. Established in 1807, the Town of Dover was named for its limestone and marble quarries that, for our earliest settlers, were reminiscent of "white cliffs" of Dover, England.
The Town of Dover has unparalleled scenic beauty from panoramic valley vistas to breathtaking views from our hillsides and ridges. Acquired by the Town in 2004, the Dover Stone Church, a historic stone cavern with an interior waterfall, still attracts visitors and nature enthusiasts for its pristine beauty as it did more than a century ago.
We are working hard to utilize the many tools at our disposal to keep you informed on projects and issues related to Town business. One of my promises to you was to televise Board meetings. I am pleased to announce that Municipal Access Channel 22 (DTV22) is now available as part of your Cablevision service. You may view pre-recorded town meetings, special events and obtain timely information from our community bulletin board from this channel 24/7. We are also streaming the channel live on this website so that we may all view this important resource. Our town website has been updated to provide information including monthly schedules, minutes and video broadcasts of recent board meetings. Also posted are updates on important land development projects, a Town of Dover Resource Directory, the Town's Newsletter and Recreation Flyer, and links to community-related programs and services. I invite you to join our mailing list and to receive periodic e-mail updates in an area of your interest.
Whether you are a new resident or native, I encourage you to share your knowledge and expertise by participating on a town committee or board. To learn more about ways to get involved, please contact me at Supervisor@TownofDoverNY.us, by phone at (845) 832-6111 x 110 or send a letter of interest to me at Dover Town Hall, 126 East Duncan Hill Rd., Dover Plains, NY 12522.
Please feel free to contact me if I can be of help and thank you for the opportunity to serve as your town supervisor.
