The Planning Board held a meeting Monday, June 8, 2009. One of the items discussed was the status of the Southern Area DGEIS.
Planning Board Chair, Jerome Donovan, said that peter j. smith & company, inc. will have the corrected copy to the Planning Board by July 6, 2009. We are told that the only changes will be minor, i.e. spelling, grammar, etc.
The Planning Board will then meet on July 13, 2009 to vote on whether to accept the final version.
A tentative date of August 10, 2009 was set for a public hearing on the final draft of the GEIS.
If you haven't already taken a look at the Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement for the Southern area of the Town of New Hartford, here is a copy. The Planning Board has also provided a FAQ Sheet on the GEIS.
We will post the exact date, place and time of the public hearing as soon as plans have been finalized.
