The Town of Springwater is pleased to announce a Community Open House for the Town’s 2016 Comprehensive Plan entitled SUSTAINABLE|Springwater. This event will be held on Tuesday, September 27, 2016, 6:00 to 8:00 PM, in the Springwater Fire Hall located at 8145 South Main Street. There will be no formal programs or presentations during the Open House, as the intent is to provide all attendees with an opportunity to speak one-on-one with members of the Steering Committee and consultant team. Attendees are free to arrive anytime between 6:00 and 8:00 PM, and will be able to review the Draft Plan and provide their own thoughts and comments on the Plan elements.
SUSTAINABLE|Springwater is the Town’s first Comprehensive Plan. The purpose of the Plan is to guide future decision-making and investment in our community, to preserve our natural environment and small town charm and character, while supporting economic growth. By articulating an overall community vision for the Town, and guidance for achieving that vision, the Comprehensive Plan provides an overall framework for future public and private investment within Springwater over the next decade. The proposed Comprehensive Plan can be viewed online at: http://springwatertrails.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/SW-DRAFT-Comp-PLAN-Sept-2016.pdf.
The planning process is under the guidance of the Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee with assistance from the Steinmetz Planning Group and Ingalls Planning & Design, and funding from the NYSERDA Cleaner, Greener Communities Grant and cost share with Livingston County. Several opportunities for public input have been provided during the planning process, including a community survey conducted in 2013, and a Community Workshop held in May 2015. The upcoming Open House is your opportunity to review the results of our Town’s collective efforts in drafting the proposed Comprehensive Plan and to provide additional input.
All residents, business owners, community leaders, and individuals with an interest in the future of Springwater are welcome and urged to attend this important event, to hear about the Plan, and share your thoughts in this effort to help shape the direction of our community for the next decade.
