Delmar resident questions advisory group's role

Town board member Sam Messina said the committee still has work to do before conclusions can be reached regarding committee and town goals.

"Again, I assure you we have committed not to trample on the rights of landowners," said Messina.

Dan Plummer said he will not advocate for any plan that takes land away from unwilling landowners but as a member of the town board, he did tell Neff future preservation of town land is important.

"If there is an opportunity to preserve land, we ought to do it," said Plummer.

Kyle Kotary, also a member of the town board, said CACC is designed to receive community input.

"The open space plan will allow us to better manage growth in the future and to set a plan or working order to get there," said Kotary.

Kotary agreed with his colleagues it is not the board's intent to "infringe on anyone's rights or restrict what they can do with their land."
