THOUSAND ISLANDS REGIONAL ASSESSMENT PROJECT TO HOLD INFORMATION MEETING
Thousand Islands Region, New York – The Thousand Islands Regional Assessment Project (TIRAP) Advisory Board will hold a public meeting on Monday October 27th, 2014 in the Haxall Building Board Room at the Antique Boat Museum at 4:00 PM. The meeting is being held to review the drafted maps outlining the possible areas for designation as a NY State Scenic Area of Statewide Significance (SASS). The consultant firm of Dodson and Flinker has utilized GIS data, maps, photos and survey data to inform the study and discuss findings.
Everyone is encouraged to visit the website, scenic1000islands.com to view the maps to be posted on October 13.
The SASS designation, through the Department of State’s Office of Planning and Development, offers protection to scenic landscapes through review of projects requiring state or federal permits or funding. The designation also assists with the name recognition and promotion to potential tourists to our beautiful region.
The advisory committee encourages all community members to attend and provide input.
