A Public Information meeting was advertised and held March 19, 2016 at 10:00 am at the Grand Gorge Civic Center to discuss the status of the GEIS Project/Flood Study for the hamlet of Grand Gorge.  Present were: Supervisor Thomas S. Hynes, Councilman Edward Raeder, Engineers Robert Allison and Richard Woidt and nine residents.

Robert Allison of Catskill Region Surveying Services and Rick Woidt of Woidt Engineers discussed their respective roles in the study process, further discussed the project objective and methodology.  A draft map was displayed per their findings of elevations.  The map will be amended as needed based on resident’s knowledge of where past water issues have been and buildings that now show as being in the flood zone but have never gotten any water.  Those areas will be looked at again.   A question & answer period took place.

The meeting closed at 11:45 am.
