Disclaimer: The village website has not worked properly or worked at all for years. The village Clerk refuses to send email to the public announcing meetings. We rely on word of mouth from anyone who visits village hall for information.
It is understood that the Zoning Board will meet on Tuesday April 2 at 7:00 PM. There are usually about a dozen items on the agenda.
The village board of trustees is rumored to be meeting on Wednesday, April 3 at 8 PM. The village board has been taking up land use issues, mostly zone changes to permit high density development with no review of traffic, parking, air and noise pollution, etc.
There is some evidence that the planning board will meet on Thursday, April 4, at 7:00 PM. Decisions will be made that affect the quality of life and character of neighborhoods in Spring Valley. No one on the planning board will bother to ask how many trees will be cut down on any individual project, or cumulatively, but they will decide that there is no significant impact.
If this sounds like an April Fools joke to you, I am sorry to report it is not. Our village is in trouble. If you are reading this, it’s because you are one of those who cares, and wants to help. Step one is to COME TO AS MANY MEETINGS AS YOU CAN. No one can make all of the meetings, but if we each come to some, we can have a group presence!
