Southern Area GEIS Community Meeting....

We attended last evening’s Planning Board meeting that was held in order to make preparations for the Final Community Meeting regarding the Southern Area Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS) to be held this Saturday, January 24, 2008, at 1 p.m. at the Willowvale Fire Co. Inc. Station at 3459 Oneida Street, Chadwicks, NY 13319.

The post card that was sent out to residents says:

The Town of New Hartford Planning Board is approaching completion of its examination of the impacts of development on the Southern Area of the Town. The purpose of the meeting is to present the study’s conclusions and seek public comment. Potential changes to the zoning, traffic patterns and storm water management techniques are among strategies addressed in the study.

The Meeting is free and open to the public and the public is urged to attend.

For more information, contact Kurt Schwenzfeier, Town Planner at 315-724-4300, ext. 5
From the sounds of last night’s Planning Board meeting, Hans Arnold, Planning Board Chair, has put a lot of thought into seeing that the Planning Board and town staff are well-prepared to explain what a GEIS is, answer any of your questions and address issues that might concern residents.

We asked to receive any written materials prior to Saturday's meeting so that we can post and give you a chance to read it over...if any information is provided to us, we will post it on this blog and our websites.

Concerned Citizens is also urging everyone to attend this meeting. Now is the time to speak up if you have questions or concerns. Please mark this Saturday at 1:00 p.m. on your calendar and plan to attend. See you there!
