Steuben County residents are being encouraged to attend public input sessions being held throughout the county this week.
The drop-in sessions are slated for 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 6, and Thursday, June 8. Tuesday’s meetings will take place at the Southeast Steuben County Library in Corning and the Community Arts Center in Hornell, while Thursday’s sessions are set for the Wayland Free Library in Wayland and the Steuben County Annex in Bath.
These sessions aim to solicit resident contributions towards the development of the Steuben County Comprehensive Plan.
Participants will have the opportunity to discuss local issues that have been raised in previous public input events, including agriculture, broadband internet, housing, climate, tourism, transportation, infrastructure, workforce development, and economic development.
A committee consisting of county legislators, county officials, economic leaders, and consultants from the MRB Group in Rochester will be present to engage with residents, fielding concerns and questions on these issues. The insights gathered will guide the committee in drafting a 15 to 20-year plan for the county, which will then be presented to the county legislature.
