NYS Department of State and Madison County NY Rising Planning Committee to Host Open House

An Open House will be held on Monday, April 28, 2014 from 5:30-7:30pm in Madison County to discuss the development of a Countywide Resiliency Strategy that will identify a range of resiliency actions that can be taken to better prepare for future storms. 
The open house will take place in the Costello Conference Room at the Madison-Oneida BOCES Transportation Center, 1136 Freedom Drive, Oneida, NY.   

The public will be encouraged to provide input on aspects of the County’s Resiliency Plan, and share their knowledge of:

• Assets that need to be protected from future storm events.

• Specific needs and opportunities that will make the County more resilient.

Representatives of the Department of State, along with members of the project Planning Committee and local elected officials, will be on hand to discuss the program, schedule, components, and expected outcomes with the public. 

The NY Rising Program is designed to empower communities affected by storms, to create and implement locally created strategies for rebuilding and strengthening their communities against future extreme weather events.  The strategies will be based on the needs of the county and developed by the NY Rising Madison County Planning Committee, community leaders, experts and officials.
