What's going on in Germantown?

Meeting Sat. Nov 16th G’town’s Natural Resources Report

 

THIS IS A MUST-ATTEND MEETING  for ANYONE WHO CARES ABOUT KEEPING GERMANTOWN’S RESOURCES HEALTHY AND PROTECTED.:

From Ellen Epstein, Germantown’s representative on the Columbia County ‘s Environemntal Management Council.

 At the Town Board’s request, a team from the New York State DEC Hudson River Estuary Program has prepared a report on Germantown’s natural resources and will present the information at a public forum on Saturday, November 16th, from 10 a.m. to Noon in the Kellner Activities Building.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about our town. The information can be used to help us update our Comprehensive Plan, or to consider our waterfront development, as well as to support our ongoing land use decisions.  We hope that many from the community will attend, especially students and young people. There will be maps on display that day, and the town will have a written report that will be an ongoing reference.  This “habitat summary” identifies major natural features in the town and the ecosystems, or natural environments, that are especially significant.  These include Hudson River tidal and shoreline habitats, streams, forests, wetlands, and other natural areas with important biological values.  If you have questions, contact Ellen Epstein at: 537-5416, or jouretnoir@gtel.net .

I URGE YOU TO COME TO THIS MEETING /SATURDAY NOV 16TH AT 10 AM!
