Design plans for the project have been developed by the Chemung County Department of Public Works (DPW) after coordination with Federal, State and local agencies.
County DPW representatives, the County’s project’s Consultant Engineers, and New York State Department of Transportation (NYS DOT) representatives will be on hand one hour prior to the start of the hearing to discuss the project and answer any questions.
Tentative schedules for right-of-way acquisition and construction will be discussed. Information will also be available regarding the NYS DOT’s Relocation Assistance Program which provides assistance and advice to those who must relocate if the property they occupy is acquired for this project. Procedures will be described wherein occupants of such acquired properties may qualify for moving expenses.
A Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared which assesses the project's effect on the quality of the human environment. Copies of the Draft EA, maps, drawings and other pertinent information developed by the County and written views received as a result of the coordination with Federal, State and local agencies will be available for public inspection, review and copying during business hours at the offices of:
Mr. Andrew Avery, Commissioner
Mr. Andrew Williams
Steele Memorial Library
Those property owners who may subsequently wish to challenge condemnation of their property via judicial review under the EDPL may do so only on the basis of issues, facts, and objections raised at the hearing (§ 202 (C) (2) of Article 2, EDPL).
Please advise the Department of Public Works office if a sign language interpreter, assistive listening system or any other accommodation will be required to facilitate your participation in this public hearing. The contact person is Mr. Andrew Avery, whose phone number is (607) 739-3896.
