All three responded well to the presentation, but one member stated that we should be doing more to advertise the Public Hearing.  It was explained that we did infact advertise in the paper, online and throughout the community.  If anyone was interested they would have come to the meeting.  It was also suggested that after this Plan is adopted by the Town Board and goes forward, that some groups get together in Grand Gorge and Roxbury and begin serious talks.  Adoption of this Plan will give the Delaware County Planning Board the opportunity to apply for grant applications and monies.
