CPV VALLEY ENERGY CENTER UPDATE

I would like to thank everyone who came to the Town Board meeting on March 8, 2018. We are in the process of reviewing all your questions, concerns and suggestions with our town engineer and Planning Board attorney. As most of you are aware, it was the Planning Board and not the Town Board that was Lead Agency for the project. As Lead Agency, they were responsible for the review of the project. They hired outside experts and reviewed all information with them. We are currently actively working on getting the answers to your questions, concerns and suggestions. Also, we have been in the process of hiring a consultant for monitoring of the air, water and noise quality to insure that CPV adheres to the standards established when they received site plan approval. 

Thank you,

Wawayanda Town Board
