Dear Residents & Community Members,
April is near and Spring is here! We hope this update finds everyone well and relishing in the hope that Springtime has a way of reawakening in all of us. We were pleased to see many of you at the first Town of Monroe Open House event back in late February. It was an evening full of fruitful conversation and provided a valuable opportunity for our residents to interact with local officials and community organizations. We look forward to hosting additional events such as this in the near future.
As always, our goal is to keep the lines of communication open with our residents and community members. While social media continues to be a valuable platform for information sharing, sometimes posts take on a life of their own, with facts often lost in the process. As such, there has been much chatter on social media lately about the Orange County Dinosaur Park proposed for town owned land on Orange Turnpike. The town remains committed to bringing initiatives to fruition for the betterment of the community. Please understand that as with any project, there is a multi-step process to adhere to including Planning Board review, traffic studies, as well as a SEQRA process (State Environmental Quality Review Act) to name a few.
Please be informed that a public information session will take place at the April 18th Town Board Meeting at Town Hall located at 1465 Orange Turnpike. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. with the information session taking place following the public hearings. I encourage all who are interested in learning the facts about this proposed project to attend.
All residents are always encouraged to review town board meeting agendas and/or attend meetings to understand what is happening in our community. If you cannot attend a meeting, but have questions or concerns, we welcome your feedback by contacting the Supervisor's office at 783-1900, extension 104 or via email at email@example.com.
Thank you for your ongoing involvement in making the Town of Monroe the truly wonderful place it is to live and work.
Supervisor, Town of Monroe
