Hamlet Residents Invited to Public Meetings

Posted on: October 7th, 2014 by Leslie_Zucker

Phoeni­cia and Mt. Trem­per res­i­dents are invit­ed to attend pub­lic meet­ings to find solu­tions to flood­ing in their com­mu­ni­ties. The Town of Shan­dak­en is launch­ing a flood reduc­tion effort focused specif­i­cal­ly on Phoeni­cia and Mt. Trem­per. A range of strate­gies will be test­ed for their ben­e­fits and fea­si­bil­i­ty. Res­i­dents are asked to bring their ideas for reduc­ing flood­ing to the pub­lic meet­ing. Res­i­dents can also help with iden­ti­fy­ing chron­ic areas of flood­ing in the hamlets.

The con­sult­ing firm Milone and MacB­room will com­bine pub­lic knowl­edge with engi­neer­ing analy­sis to deter­mine the caus­es of flood­ing and eval­u­ate the iden­ti­fied solu­tions. The results will be pre­sent­ed at future pub­lic meet­ings. The process focus­es on ben­e­fi­cial, fea­si­ble, and com­mu­ni­ty sup­port­ed solutions.

Please come out and help make this a suc­cess. Your ham­let is count­ing on you!
