WAYS YOU CAN
We don't have to say YES to these types of projects. We have the power to turn our town into a thriving community if we stay informed, stay involved, and attract the right kind of growth. We don't need to be overtaken by industrial facilities that hurt our property values, health, and environment.
The most important thing you can do is make sure that the Planning Board, Planning Chairman Ryan Courtien, and Supervisor Yeno hear your voice.
There are a few ways you can do that:
WRITE TO THE PLANNING BOARD AND TOWN SUPERVISOR RICHARD YENO & CHAIRMAN RYAN COURTIEN
Send them your concerns...

It's important that we stay in the know about proposed projects for Dover. We urge you to:
Attend or watch Town Hall Meetings and Planning Board Meetings
Visit the Town's Municipal Shared Files for Land Use Projects - there you can read about and follow each project
Do research and question if projects are truly beneficial for the town. If you think they are - that's okay, but collect all the facts and know the pros and cons both short and long term before you make a decision.
SPREAD THE WORD
Get the conversation going. Share this site on social channels.
Call or text your friends and neighbors to let them know about the upcoming Public Hearing for NY Transco and the potential additional projects on the way.
