Delaware County - The Town of Meredith Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of the updated Town of Meredith Comprehensive Plan will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. Pursuant to NYS Town Law Section 272-a, the Town of Meredith is updating its Comprehensive Plan. The original plan, adopted in 1985, described goals and objectives for maintaining rural character while supporting the agricultural traditions and economy of the town. As discovered through the current planning process, including public meetings and a mailed survey, the updated plan identifies similar areas of concern. A number of new goals and objectives have also been identified and an action plan has been established to help to achieve them. Timelines and parties responsible for implementation are included to ensure the issues that concern Meredith's residents are analyzed and addressed in an efficient manner.
