Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee to Host Virtual Community Workshops
The Town of Dryden is currently updating its 2005 comprehensive plan. During the past year the Steering Committee for the project conducted stakeholder focus groups, provided public presentations, and administered a community survey. Based on these interactions the Steering Committee developed preliminary goals and strategies to address the community needs.
Beginning this coming Wednesday January 20th, continuing on the 26th, and 27th at 6pm the Steering Committee will host a series of Virtual Workshops to solicit feedback on the draft goals and strategies. The Virtual Community Workshops will provide community members with the opportunity to review draft goals and strategies and provide their thoughts, reactions, and ideas on how to refine those goals and strategies for the future of the Town of Dryden. Six thematic areas were identified by the Town. Each session will focus on two of the six thematic areas as follows:

Workshop 1, January 20th: Affordable Housing and Land Conservation
Workshop 2, January 26th: Transportation and Walkable Communities
Workshop 3, January 27th: Economic Development and Energy Sustainability
Town of Dryden Supervisor Jason Leifer invites widespread participation, adding “It is important that Dryden residents of all ages participate in shaping our comprehensive plan. These sessions are open to everyone and I encourage people to participate in as many of these workshops as they can.”
Community members may access materials for the sessions through the project website (www.dryden2045.org) by following the “Virtual Community Workshop” link. The materials will remain available and comments may be submitted on the website through February 10, 2021.
