First and foremost, we would like to give a special thanks to all of you who wrote emails or showed up to support Sustainable Material Management at the July Planning Board meeting. We thought the meeting was constructive and successful.
On July 10th, the planning board voted to keep the public comment period open until the next meeting on August 28th. They also voted to have a draft resolution prepared for next meeting. What does this all mean? The planning board would not ask to have a resolution drafted if they did not intend to vote at the next meeting.
Follow up conversations with the Town confirmed that the County believes this is within Cortlandt's jurisdiction and does not have require any their involvement.
We see this as very promising, but we are not in the clear until the resolution approving our site plans gets passed. August 28th cannot come soon enough!
