A Petition to the Dryden Town Board to Restore Home Rule
ONLY FOR RESIDENTS OF THE TOWN OF DRYDEN, NEW YORK
PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR DRYDEN STREET ADDRESS IN THE COMMENTS BOX AS IT WILL BE INVALID WITHOUT AN ADDRESS
A petition to the Town Board of the Town of Dryden in the State of New York to retrieve from the State of New York the Right to determine the use of lands in the town for the maintenance of the public good. We the people of the Town of Dryden, New York, believe that the right to determine the ways land within our town is developed should rest with the citizens of Dryden. The State of NY removed our right to that determination when Section 23-303(2) of the New York State Environmental Conservation Law was changed. We therefore petition the Board of the Town of Dryden to: Pass a Local Ordinance affirming that the people of the Town of Dryden have the right to determine rules and regulations pertaining to the use and exploitation of their own land, resources (including minerals and other extractives), water and air within the Town of Dryden for the benefit and health of the residents of the town.
