The Town Hall Reconstruction Project began April 11, 2016 and continue until the end of July 2016.  Goshen Town Offices will be open during regular business hours during the construction period.  There will be limited parking available at the town offices during this time due to scaffolding and construction procedures.  Please park across the street in the town parking lot if possible so that the limited spaces can be used by anyone with a Handicap plate/ID tag.  On some days the exit lot at the town offices will be completely closed and you are asked to follow the signs on those days for direction.  During the evening hours regular parking is permitted with the exception of the restrictions set by the contractor for that day/evening.  Thank you for your cooperation during this time of improvement to our town.
