[MONTICELLO] – Residents of Sullivan County have five opportunities in November to learn about the newly adopted Sullivan 2020 Comprehensive Strategic Plan at locations around the county.
Developed by the Division of Planning and Community Development, the new Sullivan County Strategic Plan was approved by the Sullivan County Legislature on October 20.
“Sullivan County is growing and changing. Almost every municipality has a development issue with which it is wrestling. This comprehensive plan was the result of input from residents and civic leaders from every corner of the county,” said Commissioner of Planning & Community Development Dr. William J. Pammer. “These public forums offer everyone an opportunity to learn about the plan’s goals and the strategies required to implement them.”
Public introduction of the Sullivan 2020 Comprehensive Strategic Plan takes place from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. on the following days and at these locations:
The forums will involve overviews of the 2020 Plan by members of the committee that worked on it, and then a brief presentation on how the plan works – focusing on relevant policy areas that pertain to individual municipalities. The presentation will be followed up with a question and answer period.
“The Sullivan County Legislature has supported the creation of a new Sullivan County Strategic Plan from the beginning. Now is the chance for residents to play an active part in planning for the future. At these forums, the planning division will introduce a ‘policy tool box’ that details how citizens can take effective action in the areas they care about,” said Sam Wohl, who chairs the legislature’s planning & community development committee.
