MOTION TO APPROVAL THE MINUTES FROM THE AUGUST 31, 2004 BY JOHN STEGER – 2ND BY MERWIN ARMSTRONG – ALL VOTED IN FAVOR - PASSED
Justification: To provide strategic planning technical assistance to the hamlet areas of the Towns of Cincinnatus, Harford, Taylor, Truxton and Virgil. There is enough grant money to assist 5 hamlets.
Justification: This is to purchase development rights and acquiring conservation easements. Because the Planning Department prepares the grant applications and oversees it, the Committee would like the Planning Department to keep 7% of the funds for administrative fees. Dan Dineen will research if this can be done. John Steger would like to know how much time goes into this grant project.
**Should say "Cortland County"
Dan Dineen gave the Committee an overview of the Planning Department’s activities such as the consolidation of the 4 Agriculture districts; Quarter studies for Rte. 392, Rte. 281 & Rte. 13; and working with various municipalities on comprehensive plans, zoning, etc.
Dan commented that the Planning Department’s move to 37 Church Street went well and that they like it there.
