Effective immediately and based upon notices and health advisors issued by Federal, State, and Local officials related to the COVID-19 virus, the Planning Board will not hold in-person meetings. Until further notice, all future Planning Board meetings (including public hearings) will be held via videoconferencing, as permitted by the NYS Open Meetings Law. Due to public health and safety concerns, the public will not be permitted to attend at the remote locations where the Planning Board members will be situated. The public, however, will be able to fully observe the videoconference meeting in real time on the Town of Dover YouTube Channel.
A Public Hearing for Stony Brook Estates, Route 22 is scheduled for June 15, 2020 meeting at 7:00PM.
If you would like to participate in the public hearing live via audio and video, or audio only, you must pre-register by 4:00 pm on Thursday June 11th.
To pre-register, you must email the Planning Secretary, and include your exact name, email and mailing address. You will be sent a Meeting ID and Password for you to join the hearing through the Town's Zoom account. Please note that if you login to join the hearing and your screen name does not match your pre-registration name (for example, if you use your spouse’s computer and you did not change the account name), you will not be admitted to the meeting.
Once you are logged in, you will be placed in the Virtual Waiting Room. The moderator will let you into the meeting at the appropriate time. You can watch the proceedings of the meeting via the live stream link while you are waiting. When you enter the meeting, you will be muted to give you time to turn off the volume on the YouTube link to prevent feedback.
Written comments can be submitted via email or letter before the live Public Hearing, and within 10 days after the final live Public Hearing. Written comments must be sent to the Planning Board Secretary, via e-mail at [email protected] or via mail at:
Dover Plains, NY 12522
If you would like your comment read into the record during the live Public Hearing, your comment must be received by 3 p.m. on the date of the hearing, be able to be read in 3 minutes or less and be relevant to the subject of the public hearing. Additionally, we ask that all comments conform to basic standards of civil public discourse and courtesy. Boards will reserve the right to refuse to read into the record obscene comments or comments containing personal attacks on others, but the comment shall be made part of the public record of the hearing. Comments longer than 3 minutes will be accepted into the record and distributed to board members but will not be required to be read during the meeting. Emails can also be sent during the live Public Hearing and will be entered into the record but will not be required to be read during the meeting.
By order of the Town of Dover Planning Board
Valerie LaRobardier, Chair
