Ostrander Outlines Next Step in Anadromous Streams Change

As we reported, the Borough’s Anadromous streams protection task force wrapped up their meeting process earlier this week. We asked Borough Chief of Staff and Task Force Facilitator Paul Ostrander what the next step is in this process


Ostrander: “There’s going to be a report that’s put together and the amendment will be put together in final form, that amendment and that report will be given to the assembly at the May 21st meeting so they have a chance to look at it then. Then we’ll go from there.”


We also asked about potential legislation coming ahead


 Ostrander: “Either the administration or someone on the assembly can sponsor an ordinance, that then would go through the planning commission and the assembly. And of course, one of the key components, because of ordinance 2012-39, that was passed last year, notice would go out to all the affected land owners, which is one of the biggest concerns that we’ve heard though this process, is that folks didn’t like the fact that 2011-12 passed without direct notice to the affected landowners. So because of the ordinance last year, that’s changes and all affected landowners will get notice.”
