Back in 2006 the Town Board hired the municipal planners Elan Associates to oversee a survey and help local residents devise a comprehensive plan for Warrensburg, A number of representatives from various groups, including the local historical society, the town council and beautification group volunteered to serve on a committee to help Warrensburg achieve its full potential as it faces its future.
Last summer, a survey polling town residents and tourists for the ideas and visions for Warrensburg's future was conducted. The results will be presented in a public meeting set for April 27, from 6- 9 p.m. at the Warrensburg Elementary School.
The survey results will also be posted on the town's website, www.townofwarrensburg.org.
I for one would like to see some action taken to reduce some of the vacant, run-down and deserted storefronts and make our town more attractive to new business as well as new residents.
I discussed this concern recently with town councilman John Alexander, and he said he believes this comprehensive plan could help things move forward. This is fine with me, but when?
A stakeholders meeting will be held April 20, and it is intended to include various local organizations. Those who haven't been notified, or to seek answers to planning questions, contact the town planning office at 623-9514.
