Consistent with the town’s Comprehensive Plan and its commitment to aggressively plan for its future, the town is engaged in several major planning initiatives. Recognizing the great value of citizen participation and input in the process, the town has established advisory committees to assist in the planning process. Advisory committees include various town stakeholders who voluntarily participate to represent the interests, opinions, and geographic concerns of town residents, businesses, and property owners. Members of advisory committees are appointed by the Town Board, and although they do not have policy-making authority, they work very closely with town staff and consultants to develop community consensus and recommendations on specific topics and projects. Individuals interested in participating on advisory committees should contact the town supervisor’s office.
