The study will begin within the next month or two, Farrington said, as a consultant is hired. The grant will go largely toward the consultant and for city in-house services.
Local consultant Melissa McManus will participate in the study, and public input will be sought.
“This is a perfect opportunity for community involvement, and we want as much input as we can get,” Farrington said.
“This will help us build a consensus of where we want to go.
“We, as a community, can collectively come to a conclusion that these are the opportunities we want to pursue, so that way, when you go for funding, it’s not just one guy saying he wants to do something; it’s the whole community.”

The City of Plattsburgh's study will include several public forums to get input from residents.
A Project Advisory Committee, with residents and business owners as members, will also be formed.
Anyone interested in volunteering to serve on the committee can contact the Engineer's Office at 563-7730 or email City Engineer Kevin Farrington at firstname.lastname@example.org.
