Prattsville community planning this weekend

Nov 04, 2011 12:40 am
Walter Severini reports in The Watershed Post, quoting radio station WRIP (97.9-FM), that Prattsville officials are surveying residents about what direction the town should take after Hurricane Irene-related flooding nearly wiped it out in late August. The surveys are online and at the Town Hall trailer and the Great American Supermarket. The town holds four important community workshops beginning this weekend, to create a master rebuilding plan.

• Friday, November 4, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. at the Firehouse for a Community Workshop to discuss community rebuilding ideas.
• Saturday November 5, 2011 between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. at the Firehouse (2nd Floor) where the design team will work on plans. Please stop by between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. to critique the work and talk to planers and designers.
• Sunday, November 6, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. at the Firehouse for a presentation of the initial concepts for the future based on resident wishes for review and comment.
• Monday November 14, 2011 between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Firehouse for an open house to present the refined concepts for residents to review and comment.

The town is asking all residents to join subcommittees on the town rebuilding plan. The subcommittees are:
• Economic Development: Business and Main Street Revitalization, Tourism, Municipal Buildings
• Housing: Senior Housing, Rental Housing, Affordable Family Housing, Single-Family Housing
• Community Services: Youth and Senior Services, Parks, Recreation, Museum/Cultural services.

Residents can sign up for the subcommittees on the survey form, at the Town Trailer, or at the workshops. Contact Kory O'Hara, Town Supervisor, at 518-577-6215 and see the town website and Facebook page for more information. Read the full story in The Watershed Post.
