Prattsville Recovery Priorities Survey
It has been almost two years since we developed our Long Term Plan. During that time, much has been done to execute on that plan and we are seeing the results every day with almost all of our businesses reopened, people returning to their homes, new businesses springing up, and our new streetscape and parks and recreation grant being employed. As we look forward to the next few years, we believe it is important to step back and re-assess our original Long Term Plan to ensure we are still moving in the direction that you would like. Additionally, we are at an important crossroad with our NY Rising Community Reconstruction Program grant as we need to determine the project(s) to fund with that grant. Accordingly, we are once again reaching out to you for your views and ideas. Your response to these questions will be used to set a clear priority for the Town and help us ensure that our grant funds are being applied according to the Town’s wishes. Once we have compiled the surveys we will hold a Town Hall type meeting to review the responses and discuss the opportunities for utilizing current and future grant money to help us rebuild Prattsville bigger and better than ever! A detailed description of our success to date can be found at www.prattsville.org
This survey is also on the web at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/REBUILDPrattsvilleSurvey. Please complete the web version if at all possible to simplify the compliation process. However, if you so desire, you may return your written survey by dropping it off at the Town Hall, or mail it to Town Hall, Main Street, Prattsville NY 12468 and please mark the envelope “Survey.”

NOTE: As you may be aware, through separate grants, we have been helping homeowners and businesses in their recovery efforts. These efforts are on-going and as such, these very important issues are being addressed outside of this survey. ALSO note that we have excluded flood mitigation from the survey as we await the NYC DEP Flood Study which should be available in the next month.
Community meetings will be held on October 16, 2013 and October 28, 2013 at the Prattsville Community Church on Main Street at 6:30 PM to introduce the NY Rising Community Reconstruction Program, review progress implementing the Long Term Community Recovery Plan, review survey results, and review a brief Conceptual Plan Progress Report requested by the State. Please join us.
