The Sandy Creek Regional Planning Board regularly meets on the first Wednesday of each month, 7:00pm at the Sandy Creek Town Hall, 1992 Harwood Dr., PO Box 52, Sandy Creek, NY 13145. Meetings are open to the public. The planning board consists of eight appointed members (five from the Town of Sandy Creek and three from the Village of Sandy Creek) and several alternate members.
The general function of the Planning Board is to collect, research, document, and update available data related to the Town and Village of Sandy Creek; formulate policy and make recommendations to the constituent municipalities; serve as a source of information for the citizens and local governments; promote the concept of home rule, while working cooperatively with other local, state, and federal agencies; and work for the health, welfare, and general well-being of the community.
The Planning Board is always looking for interested participants to serve as alternate members, who would then be available to fill future vacancies. Currently, an alternate is needed from the Village of Sandy Creek. In order to be eligible for appointment to the Planning Board, a prospective member must be:
*a property owner within the municipality he or she will represent, or a registered voter of that municipality
*must be at least 18 years of age at time of appointment
*must be a resident of the municipality he or she represents for at least 60 days prior to the time of appointment
All members are required to attend at least 4 hours of formal training per year. For more information, please contact the Village Clerk at 315-387-5781 or the Town Clerk at the 315-387-5456.
