Germantown revised comprehensive plan needs some tweaking

Jan 11, 2018 7:45 am

Debby Mayer is reporting for The Columbia Paper the calendar year ended without the Germantown Town Board approving or rejecting the town's revised Comprehensive Plan. “I think the overall document is good,” said board member Brittany DuFresne, but she questioned details and language. For example, she said, the plan prohibits burn barrels without saying what a burn barrel is. The plan has a “repeated reference to a designated scenic byway,” DuFresne said. “I cannot find anywhere that New York State has designated a scenic byway [in Germantown]. It rubs me the wrong way. If is designated, where, show me. If it’s not designated, it needs to say that, or that the designation is recommended.” DuFresne also wanted to hear input from board member Ron Moore II, who had questions about the revised plan but was absent from the December 19 meeting. The board decided that DuFresne and Moore would meet with members of the Comprehensive Plan Committee. Read the full story in The Columbia Paper.
