I saw an article in the Citizen newspaper the other day that Scipio residents have until November 22, 2010, to submit comments on the proposed Comprehensive Plan. A committee of several dedicated town residents put a lot of effort into crafting this document, the result of those surveys sent to us all last year. You can view the draft Plan online at:
www.cnyrpdb.org/scipiocompplan/. You can make comments or ask questions of your Town Board, or send an e-mail with the subject "Scipio Comprehensive Plan Comment" to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are some very interesting parts to this plan, which will be voted on by your Town Board after November 22, and drive future zoning and other local laws. Perhaps the entire town will become a Historical site, like the Hamlet of Sherwood. Shall we allow building near our lake? Bigger farms? A park, or other common green space?
A lot of hard work has been done; now it is time for us to review and be thoughtful. What do you see Scipio becoming in the future? Only you can decide.
