NORWICH – The Chenango County Department of Planning and Development is nearing the final stages of a comprehensive plan that will dictate future public policies in areas like transportation, land use, housing and recreation.
The county’s latest revision of a county-wide comprehensive plan is nearly finalized, pending a New York State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) review which considers the environmental impacts the plan may have.
According to Department of Planning Director Donna Jones, the aim is to have the plan voted on by the Chenango County Board of Supervisors in May. A draft copy will be distributed to county officials this month.
“The draft plan is done. Right now, we’re going through the SEQR processs to get it out to all the towns and villages in the county, and to continuous counties,” Jones said.
