The Board briefly discussed the new DFIRMs (i.e. flood maps). Carl Stuendel from the Town Board has scheduled a Town meeting for Tuesday, February 16th to educate and assist any residents looking at protesting the new mapping with respect to their property. Carl will contact Tom Evans after the meeting to discuss the outcome of the meeting.
The Board discussed the possible ramifications of gas exploration on emergency services in Tompkins and the surrounding area. Sebastian D’Agati thought that local emergency services would not be prepared to deal with such an industry. James Fox wasn’t necessarily in agreement and felt the area would adapt. The Board discussed road preservation somewhat. Discussion will continue on this more next month. The Board will continue to research this too.
