COMPREHENSIVE PLAN WORKSHOP for the TOWN OF SPRINGWATER

The Town of Springwater is undertaking the development of its first Comprehensive Plan. A Comprehensive Plan provides an overall framework for future public and private investment in our community. It accomplishes this by articulating an overall vision for our Town, as well as a strategy for achieving that vision. This workshop is your opportunity to voice your opinions and suggestions about the location and character of land use and development patterns in our community. The input from this workshop will be integrated into the Comprehensive Plan and will thereby help guide future decision-making in Springwater.

In order to complete this important project, the Town of Springwater applied for and received a $50,000 grant from New York State Energy Research and Development Authoritys (NYSERDA) Cleaner, Greener Communities (CGC) Program. This program is a part of the States effort in supporting sustainable development throughout New York. These funds will help to cover the costs of hiring a planning consultant to assist in developing a Comprehensive Plan for the Town, while encouraging sustainable development and increasing awareness of our valuable environmental assets.  

A team led by the Steinmetz Planning Group was selected as the consultant and the project has already begun with a recent kick off meeting with the Steering Committee.  A one-day Comprehensive Plan Workshop is being planned to give everyone an opportunity to get involved in this process. Other opportunities for public involvement will include monthly Steering Committee meetings, individual interviews, and public hearings. It is important that everyone in the Town participate and work together so that this Comprehensive Plan expresses our communitys priorities, assets, and goals, while providing effective guidance for future land use planning.

The Comprehensive Plan Workshop will be held on Saturday, May 2, 2015 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Springwater Fire Department located at 8145 Main Street, Springwater, NY 14560.  No advance reservations are required.  Refreshments will be provided. Residents are free to attend all or part of the workshop as their schedule permits.  Should you have any questions, please contact Carolyn Tinney at 585-728-2041.
