HARRISON, N.Y. The Harrison Town Board will hold a public session on the town's master plan next week the first of three meetings in nine days.
The board will meet at 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Veterans Memorial Building, 216 Halstead Ave.
The town last completed its master plan in 1988, but worked on a draft master plan in 2007, said Town Clerk Jackie Greer.
Its an open meeting that the public has to be informed about, Greer said. Its not a question-and-answer session, but the board will be discussing it in front of the public.
This will be the first public meeting concerning the master plan under recently elected Mayor Ron Belmont.
Previously, the master plan recognized that high-density development, zoning changes, protection of open space and the environment, and lack of compliance with town laws, regulations and board directives were the biggest concerns facing the town.
The Town Board will hold a regular meeting at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 15, at the Municipal Building, located at 1 Heineman Place. The agenda for this meeting was yet to be released as of Friday afternoon.
Finally, the Town Board will hold an executive session at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 21, at the Municipal Building to receive a presentation on health benefits. The meeting will immediately adjourn to executive session, which will not be open to the public.
