Callicoon draft Comprehensive Plan unveiled; gas drilling cited; public work session scheduled

Finally, with the goal of ensuring that industrial development is compatible with the community character, an implementation step spells out that town officials should “work closely with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to ensure that any potential new industrial activity, including natural gas drilling, is carried out safely. This includes keeping informed of whether and how the town will be involved in the permitting process, exercising our rights to participate in the process, and advocating for the protection of the important resources named in this comprehensive plan.”

A comprehensive plan workshop has been scheduled for April 25 at 7 p.m. at the town hall in Jeffersonville.
