INCREASE AND IMPROVEMENT OF FACILITIES

SPECIAL MEETING NOTICE

PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE

            PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that the Town Board of the Town of Crawford will hold a special meeting for the purpose of  holding a public hearing on September 29th, 2021 at 6:00 PM, in person at the Crawford Senior and Community Center, 115 State Route 302, Pine Bush, New York to consider and hear public comment on a proposed increase and improvement of the facilities of the Pine Bush Water District and to take action on said proposed increase and improvement of said facilities, and on any other business that may come before the board.  In addition, the public may attend this meeting via remote ZOOM videoconference, as described further below. 

PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that the proposed improvements include the purchase of property for the protection of two newly drilled water production wells and construction of a well house approximately 1,600 LF north of NYS Route 52 on Dubois Street (Tax Parcel: Section 2, Block 1, Lot 79.2), along with installation of a water main to connect to the Water District’s existing water system in the hamlet of Pine Bush. The proposed 20 feet x 30 feet treatment building would provide chlorination of the groundwater source and provision for future sequestration, if needed. Treated groundwater would be pumped to the Water District’s existing water system via approximately 6,100 feet of 8-inch diameter HDPE transmission main installed along NYS Route 52 and connected to the existing water system on State Route 52 across from Boniface Drive. 

The estimated maximum cost of the proposed project is $4,762,100.  The County has previously secured a Local Government Efficiency Grant (in 2012 and 2015) in the amount of $920,200 for drilling and design work for the subsequently proposed wells on County land. The proposed wells on County land will be replaced by the newly drilled wells on the Dubois property. The Town has secured a WIIA grant from the State Environmental Facilities Corporation in the amount of $2,311,680, and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Financial Assistance in the amount of $1,001,100 for the proposed well house and connection to the Dubois wells. Municipal contributions will be in the estimated amount of $540,000 grant match.  A map and plan of the proposed improvements is on file in the Town Clerk’s office.  All persons interested will be heard by the Town Board at the public hearing.

PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that persons who attend the meeting via Zoom will be able to see and hear the meeting, but will not be able to make or submit oral or written comments during the meeting. Any person who attends by Zoom and  who wishes for his or her comment to be heard during a public hearing or the public comment session can send his or her comments in advance of the meeting to [email protected] or call 845-744-2020 by no later than 4:00 PM on September 29, 2021.

SUBJECT TO PERMISSIVE REFERENDUM

            NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Town Board of the Town of Crawford, at a special meeting held on July 27, 2021, after issuance of a SEQR Negative Declaration for this Unlisted action, duly adopted a local law, subject to permissive referendum, titled “Opt-Out of Allowing Cannabis Dispensaries and On-Site Cannabis Consumption Establishments,” which local law opts-out the Town of Crawford from the state statute authorizing towns to allow the licensing and establishing of cannabis retail dispensaries and cannabis on-site consumption establishments within the Town, and thus prohibit such establishments in the Town of Crawford.

Coterminous Town/Village Petition for Consolidation

The Supervisor and Town Board support the Coterminous Town/Village petition for Consolidation. The attached question and answer sheet should answer most questions. This petition allows the Town to put this up for a vote by the residents in the Spring of 2022. If this is passed by the voters this consolidation would protect our current zoning and eliminate the possibility of new entities being formed within the Town’s borders. In a state as costly to live in as New York this should help keep the taxes more stable than what they would be if new entities are formed. Protect your values, including open space and strict zoning that were outlined in the Town of Crawford master plan and sign a petition for a vote on this consolidation. Should you have any further questions reach out to the Town Supervisor, Town Clerk or any Town Board member and we would be happy to answer them.

Supervisor Charles E. Carnes
