Varna planning meeting Wednesday

Three pretty different announcements tell a similar story. As the Town of Dryden site puts it:

There will be a special Planning Board meeting on December 1st at the Varna Community Center to discuss the initial plan for creating a Varna Master Plan. The meeting will be at 7 pm.

As Jim Skaley put it in his reminder email:

Just a reminder to any and all members of the Varna Community to come and participate in discussion on developing a master plan for the hamlet this coming Wednesday at 7 p.m.

The Town Board has authorized funds to proceed with this planning process--issues to be focused on will be traffic controls, character of the community and much of what you contributed in a couple sessions last summer. This is your opportunity to shape the future of Varna for a more liveable community.

This is open to anyone in the Varna community stretching from Game Farm to Rt 13 and including Turkey Hill, Monkey Run, Freese Rd and Forest Home Dr.

And as the Varna Community Association newsletter put it:

DEVELOPING A MASTER PLAN FOR VARNA - Your input is needed! by Janet Morgan WHEN: 7 pm, Wednesday, December 1, 2010

WHAT: A meeting to learn about the proposed community development plan for the hamlet of Varna. Previous plans developed by residents of Varna will be reviewed, and issues will be prioritized. Your input is needed!

WHY: The Town Board has directed that a Master Plan be developed for the hamlet of Varna.

WHO: Mike Welti, Certified Community Planner, Director of Planning Services at Behan Planning and Design, will lead the presentation and discussion. Mr. Welti is a consultant to the Town of Dryden.

WHERE: Varna Community Center

This conversation is happening because Varna residents weren't thrilled with the undifferentiated splotch of random development for the hamlet and proposed different approaches. The Planning Board, on reflection, agreed.
