From Greg Gilligan’s time line:
Just got this from Myrna Kemnitz…PLEASE TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW TO WRITE THE TIMES HERALD RECORD..PHOTO NEWS..SPREAD THE WORD…THE CLOCK IS TICKING
Just texted Emily. We must get Monroe Town Board to declare for SEQRA Lead Agency. ASAP!!
We have only 30 days from when KJ submitted their papers, Dec 27. The click started ticking then. Deadline is Jan 26 for them to declare.
Need social media to get people to write into Photo News and TH-R.
KJ has declared for Lead Agency, this means they will be able to say that their examination shows the annexation HAS NO EFFECT NOW AND WILL HAVE NO environmental effect on Monroe. We will have no right to say anything about their “scientific findings” if we just go along with letting them choreograph the show.
Just think about all those acres being built out in terms of thousands of people: sewer needs, traffic, shopping, pollution.
The Monroe Town Board has to be pressured by a blizzard of press and letters directly to them to declare for Lead Agency. If we do the study, we get to say what the real environmental effect on us is now,
and will be when the land is developed!
Otherwise, the Monroe board will agree with whatever KJ says, the Lead Agency.
We have to do what Woodbury did when Ziggy wanted his annexation.
Let our constituency know what action they should take now .
Write to the newspapers and copy the board. Blog.
