Wheatfield to update town plan

Officials in the Town of Wheatfield are seeking input from local groups, including residents, organizations and the business community, on the update of the town's proposed comprehensive plan.

An open house on the update will be held at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the Wheatfield Community Senior Citizen Center, 2800 Church Road.

Representatives of the plan task force, as well as the volunteer citizen focus groups that have been working on the plan updates, will be available to gather input from the public on key focus areas, community interests and concerns. Those with interests in green space, agriculture, economic development and other topic areas are invited to attend.

The town is looking for input on actions proposed to date, to generate new ideas and to prioritize actions that will be taken over the next five years.

Since the original plan was completed in 2003, the task force, assisted by the volunteer focus groups, has been implementing actions with the plan. Focus areas include: economic development, agriculture, emergency management, green space, the town center, parks and recreation, the veterans' memorial, planning and zoning boards and building department/code enforcement officer.

These completed actions have included updating laws, implementing new laws and ordinances as well as creating town projects, and activities such as the creation of a farmers' market.

For more information on the meeting, contact Francine Boore, administrative secretary to the town supervisor, at 694-6680.
