Palmyra seeks comments on town planning

PALMYRA – A unique spaghetti supper to be held later this month at Palmyra will provide residents with several opportunities: getting to know each other, enjoying a meal together, and participating in the town’s comprehensive planning process.

Planning board member Becky Wiers said Monday that “stations” will be set up around the perimeter of the town hall at 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 26, that will allow residents to check on the plan’s progress and direction while adding their own opinions and ideas.

The event is free to all Palmyra residents.

Wiers said the stations will contain statistics that have already been collected about Palmyra by consultant Bill Najpauer on population, housing, economy and other areas.

“There will be a station for the local schoolkids who have been asked about how they would want their town to look,” Wiers said. There also will be door prizes. Wiers said the comprehensive planning committee has been hard at work creating an updated document.

“I’m starting to get excited,” Wiers admitted. “It’s great to be part of something that will help the community develop a growth plan that will, hopefully, be beneficial.”
