O&G and its proposal to create a haul road from the quarry to Route 9G were on the agenda for last night's Greenport Planning Board, but the item was scratched midway through yesterday. Last night it was explained that representatives of O&G were not there because they "weren't prepared."
At their August meeting, the Greenport Planning Board asked O&G for an updated wildlife study of the area impacted by the proposed haul road and required O&G to complete the long Environmental Assessment Form. Although given these additional requests O&G's application was not complete, the Planning Board went ahead with the public hearing because notice of the hearing had already been published. The public comment period remains open, and anyone wishing to make an oral or written comment about the proposal may do so. Written comments can be addressed to:
Donald Alger, Chairman
Greenport Planning Board
