Local business leaders are invited to a stakeholder meeting on Thursday, May 17, 2018 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the Schenevus VFW, 16 Main Street, Schenevus. The Town of Maryland Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee is seeking input on important issues facing the business community.
The Town of Maryland is currently updating its 2008 Comprehensive Plan. When complete, the Comprehensive Plan will outline a vision for the Town’s future as well as a set of specific goals and objectives. As part of this planning process, the Town is working with its Steering Committee and planning consultant, the Otsego County Conservation Association.
“Obtaining input from the public is a critical component of the Comprehensive Planning process; the more information we receive from the business community, the better,” said Danny Lapin, environmental planner with the Otsego County Conservation Association.
“The information we receive from town business owners will provide the Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee with useful information as we begin to develop the plan and develop a list of objectives,” said Stephen Barton, chairman of the Town of Maryland’s Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee. The Plan, which is scheduled to be completed in early 2019, will help identify challenges and opportunities facing the Town of Maryland, shape the its growth, and enhance the quality of life in the Town.
The Stakeholder Meeting will include a brief presentation on the current status of the Plan Update, a discussion on how the Comprehensive Plan could benefit the business community, and an opportunity for additional discussion.

The Committee’s outreach process will continue this fall with a third Public Workshop, details of which will be announced on Facebook and the Town’s website, in the coming weeks.
