SOMERS, N.Y. -- Plans to revise Somers Comprehensive Plan moved forward Dec. 10 when a public hearing was held during the Town Board's meeting on the draft document, says The Examiner News.

Previously called the Master Plan, it hasn't been updated since 1994, according to the report.

The town hired consultant Frank Fish who along with Town Planner Syrette Dym will bring the document up to date, says the article.

The consultant utilizing information assembled by volunteers of the Master Plan Committee drom 2002 to 2008.

In the article, Fish explained that a Comprehensive Plan is “a vision for the overall town” for a period of about the next decade.

Of chief concern among residents was a recommendation in the draft to initiate changes to the West Somers Park, related to active use of the facility, the report said.

But Town Supervisor Rick Morrissey said its usage would not be changed from a passive recreation facility, according to the article.
