has a large section of recently updated "progress reports" of the town's efforts to recover from the floods associated with Hurricane Irene last August. For instance, a Fri., Jan. 13 post explains the current plan to create senior housing in Prattsville:
"Senior Housing – Michael Weston talked about the need to investigate further the need for life stages housing in the region. The community has many senior residents who could benefit from a walkable community with services nearby that seniors may need. After some discussion it was agreed that a housing marketing survey be conducted to investigate the housing needs as well as the support systems that are available for seniors. The marketing study should include housing needs for the special needs populations as well. Michael Welti suggested that Margaret Irwin would be willing to conduct such a marketing survey. Stephen Baker discussed that they are ready to organize a 12 senior housing project."
The housing sub-committee has tentative plans to meet again Jan. 28.
