Dutchess County - The Town of Amenia Planning Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Silo Ridge Resort Community. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on November 17, 2007 at 9:00 a.m. at the Silo Ridge Country Club, Route 22, Amenia, New York.
