Today is last day for comment period regarding Project Access York

YORK – Today, June 12, is the last day of the comment period regarding Project Access York.

The public is encouraged to make comments regarding support, concerns, questions, issues. And they can do it in many forms.

“We have the link on the city’s website where people can go in electronically and leave their comments,” York City Administrator Dr. Sue Crawford told the York City Council recently, as they met in regular session. “We also have physical hard copy forms here at the city offices they can fill out and physically submit to my office. People can write their comments on just a piece of paper, if they want, and submit it to me. Whatever form they choose. Everything I collect will be submitted as public comment.”

“Can we also forward the emails we’ve each received about this?” asked Councilman Jerry Wilkinson.

“Yes, anything sent to me will be added to the public comments,” Crawford said. “Whether it is emailed or mailed in or dropped off, all of it will be forwarded to the public comments we receive. Then Olssons (the engineers) will create a matrix of patterns so we can see what was commented. They will compile the comments and all of us will then discuss the comments. Again, it can be on paper, in emails, online, on a napkin, in crayon, in pencil, however anyone wants to do it. Whatever comes in will be submitted.”

She noted that if someone submits a comment or question online, via the link, and includes their name, they will receive a personal reply from the engineering firm concerning those questions.

“When will we be able to see the results?” asked Councilmember Vicki Northrop.

Dr. Crawford said she wasn’t sure on the timeline “but you will be able to see it all.”

The city offices are located at 100 E. Fourth Street.
