A few announcements heading into the Thanksgiving holidays.
Waterfront Infrastructure Committee
The Waterfront Infrastructure Committee will hold its first public workshop on Wednesday, November 28, 2012, at 7 PM at the James Harmon Community Center. (This date was rescheduled from last week.) The purpose of the workshop is to
share the Committee's thoughts on the physical layout of the property and brainstorm a program for uses and activities in the public spaces.
The Board of Trustees appointed the Waterfront Infrastructure Committee (WIC) to assist the Board by coming up with the location and key features of desired parks, roads, and infrastructure. We also hope that the WIC can help in identifying likely activities and uses for the parks, open spaces and water-related uses so we can preliminarily locate key waterfront
amenities such as boat access points, piers, floating docks, marinas, etc. This meeting is an important part of the Village's planning for the use of the waterfront, especially the public and open spaces. Your participation in this process is crucial, and welcome.
(Observant citizens will have noticed a fifty foot crane on the south end of the waterfront, which has been cleared of much of the trees there. This crane is removing contaminated soil and replacing it with clean fill. Most of this is being barged in and out to minimize the impact on Village roads.)
Sandy Public Post-Mortem
We are seeking to hold a post-mortem on Sandy for the public on Saturday morning, December 1, from 10AM to 12PM at the Community Center. We are going to talk about what happened, but more importantly, what we as residents can do to prepare for the next event. We will look at everything from insurance coverage to community resilience and disaster planning. This useful session will give us a chance to review what to do, drawing from our experiences in the recent storm. An agenda and specifics will follow this weekend.
The Red Cross will be at the Library this Friday for a blood drive sponsored by the Library, between noon and 6PM at the Library. Let's make it a Red Friday, to be a little graphic, instead of Black Friday.
Enjoy the holiday and see you around town.
