Comments on Alden master plan due
The deadline for written comment on the proposed Village of Alden master plan is Thursday.
The Alden Village Board still needs to decide the fate of the master plan, which has not been revised since the late 1970s.
Beth Downing, village administrator, said trustees may discuss that plan during a meeting at 7:15 p.m. Thursday in Village Hall.
Written comments have been forwarded from village leaders to Wendel, the Amherst-based firm that drafted the plan after receiving input from Alden residents and the Master Plan Advisory Committee. The nine-member committee included residents, business leaders and a representative from Alden Central Schools.
Downing said residents were also able to speak out on the proposed plan during a public hearing in August. James Trapp, committee chairman, said about 30 people attended the public hearing.
