Community meetings for the comprehensive plan update resume this evening and continue through Wednesday.

Each community meeting focuses on a distinct area of the town, in addition to providing an overview of the planning process and “next steps” going forward.

Tonight’s meeting will focus on the hamlets of Wading River and Manorville. Tomorrow night, Calverton and Baiting Hollow will be the hamlets under discussion. And Wednesday evening will look at the hamlet of Riverhead as well as downtown Riverhead.

Everyone is welcome to attend every meeting, either in-person or via Zoom. All meetings begin at 6 p.m. They will take place in-person at the Riverhead Senior Center, 60 Shade Tree Lane in Aquebogue. Doors open at 5:45 p.m.

Zoom video conferencing will be available for each meeting to allow people to participate remotely. The Zoom links for the meetings are posted here.

Riverhead Building and Planning Administrator Jefferson Murphree said the technical difficulties with the Zoom videoconferencing experienced at the first meeting, held Sept. 13, have been corrected.

Visit the Comprehensive Plan Update website for additional information, current zoning maps and downloadable documents. The planners are asking all residents and other interested persons to provide feedback and ideas on the interactive maps and in an online survey.

Each community meeting is being recorded and will be available on demand on the town’s website as well as aired on Optimum cable Channel 22.
