In April 2018 the Village trustees, planning and zoning boards attended a training workshop put on in the Village with the NY Department of State. Amy DeGaetano and Matt Maraglio answered questions from all boards. The purpose of the training was to obtain a better understanding of the plan. (Click here Presentation)
By preparing an LWRP, community stakeholders take the opportunity to evaluate local waterfront resources, develop goals and a comprehensive strategy for the best use of those resources, identify ways in which the community can reduce risk to community assets and make them more resilient to future threats and natural disasters, propose future land and water uses and put in place a local program that will guide the community in attracting appropriate development to the waterfront area while planning for sustainability. LWRPs also provide the organizational structure, local laws, and projects to achieve the plan.
As a direct result of the LWRP training, the Village recognized zoning code updates were never completed to bring the code in line with the LWRP and undertake a review of its resiliency section.
In the fall of 2018 the Village applied for a grant to review and update its local law. In 2019 the Village has received a grant from NY Department of State to undergo the review.
Watch for more information in the Fall of 2019.
