Dryden Comp Plan Workshops

The members of the Dryden 2045 Steering Committee and consultant team are deeply upset by the events that took place during the Virtual Public Workshop on January 27th and apologize that the workshop was cut short because of those events. We want to thank everyone that attended the workshop with intentions of having a constructive dialog. We are very encouraged to see so much interest in discussing the Dryden 2045 Comprehensive plan. Unfortunately, the level of attendance that the workshop received was not anticipated and the Zoom meeting was not able to accommodate all the residents that wanted to participate.    The Steering Committee will reschedule the workshop with increased capacity and increased security to prevent these issues from happening again. The date and time of the rescheduled meeting will be announced through the media and posted to the Dryden 2045 website (https://www.dryden2045.org/) and Town of Dryden website and social media accounts as soon as that information is available.     Thank you for your understanding and patience while we work to address these...
