THOUSAND ISLANDS REGIONAL ASSESSMENT PROJECT TO HOLD MEETING TO DISCUSS PRELIMINARY FINDINGS
Thousand Islands Region, New York -The Thousand Islands Regional Assessment Project (TIRAP) Advisory Committee will hold a public meeting on Monday - August 18th, 2014 on the 3rd floor of the Clayton Opera House at 7:00PM. The main objective of the meeting is to discuss the preliminary findings of the inventory and data analysis phase of the scenic area assessment.
Dodson & Flinker, Inc. is helping the process by working with ten communities along the St Lawrence River to evaluate the scenic resources and character of the area in hopes to become designated as a New York State Scenic Area of Statewide Significance (SASS). The team has utilized GIS data, maps, photos and survey data as part of the study and will discuss findings.
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 action. While the designation will help protect our scenery, it will also help with name recognition and promotion to potential tourists to our beautiful region. Please access the website www.scenic1000islands.com for more information about the project.
The advisory committee encourages all community members to attend and provide input.
