SHELBY – A public hearing planned for Wednesday for a comprehensive plan in western Orleans County has been cancelled and will be rescheduled.

The hearing will give residents a chance to comment about a comprehensive plan for the towns of Shelby, Ridgeway and Yates and the villages of Medina and Lyndonville.

The plan covers a broad array of topics, including socioeconomic trends – housing; land use – zoning and development; infrastructure and utilities; environment; historic, cultural, and municipal resources; parks; open space and recreation; economic development; transportation; and sustainability.

For each topic area, the plan summarizes existing conditions, identifies issues and opportunities and outline recommendations and action items.

A committee with officials from the municipalities has been working on the plan for about 18 months. The Western Orleans Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee has completed a draft of the plan, a 339-page document that is available by clicking here.
