3 MUNICIPAL NEWS GET INVOLVED IN NATIONAL CYBER SECURITY AWARENESS MONTH In its 11th year, Cyber Security Awareness Month is a nationally recognized effort sponsored by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in cooperation with the National Cyber Security Alliance and Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center, to raise awareness about the importance of cyber security. The Internet plays an integral part in our daily lives and being constantly connected at work and at home brings increased risk of theft, fraud and abuse. Government, law enforcement, the private sector, and most importantly, members of the public, must work together to create a safer cyber environment. Each week in October is dedicated to a specific cyber security theme with corresponding messaging. The themes listed below offer the opportunity for everyone to get involved in cyber security activities most relevant to them. Details on the weekly themes are as follows: Week 1 (October 1-3): Promoting Online Safety with Stop.Think.Connect. Campaign Week 2 (October 6-10): Secure Development of IT Products Week 3 (October 13-17): Critical Infrastructure and the Internet of Things Week 4 (October 20-24): Cyber security for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses and Entrepreneurs Week 5 (October 27-31): Cyber Crime and Law Enforcement Join others across New York State and the country in celebrating NCSAM by: ~ Visiting the NYS Office of Information Technology Services, Enterprise Information Security Office (NYS ITS EISO) web page at to download and distribute the Cyber Security Awareness Toolkit filled with posters, calendars, informational sheets, and other materials ~ Encouraging employees and citizens to sign the Cyber Pledge at ~ Branding and distributing the Cyber Tips Newsletter available at ~ Hanging Cyber Security Awareness posters from the Awareness Toolkit in common areas ~ Planning an activity in your community PAGE 3 ~ Including a Cyber Security Awareness article in your organization s newsletter ~ #NCSAM, and #NysCyber on Twitter Visit the following sites for more ideas and to learn more: ~ NYS ITS EISO: ~StaySfeOnline.org: ~ U.S. Department of Homeland Security: national-cyber-securityawareness-month-2014 Stop.Think.Connect.

4 MUNICIPAL NEWS DOES YOUR COMMUNITY HAVE A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN? New York State has indicated that comprehensive planning can and should be performed by all municipalities. A community s comprehensive plan, formerly known as a master plan, can provide the following benefits to the community: ~ Provides a process for identifying community resources, long range community needs, and commonly held goals ~ Provides a process for developing community consensus ~ Provides a blueprint for future governmental actions and the development of a community s natural and built environment A comprehensive plan may include (at the level of detail appropriate to the special requirements of the community) a statement of goals, objectives, and policies for the immediate and long-range enhancement, growth, and development of the community. The comprehensive plan could cover the following topics: ~ Population base and trends, including demographic and socioeconomic trends ~ Existing and proposed land uses, and their intensity ~ Existing and proposed agricultural uses, historical resources, cultural resources, educational facilities, natural resources, parklands, coastal resources and sensitive environmental areas ~ Existing and proposed transportation facilities ~ Existing and proposed utilities and infrastructure ~ Existing and proposed housing resources, including housing needs ~ Review of and interaction with other governmental and nongovernmental plans and with regional needs ~ Economic development strategies ~ Other topics consistent with the orderly growth and development of the community The comprehensive plan also could include a strategic component discussing the proposed means to implement goals, objectives and policies. We can make other communities comprehensive plans available to you so that you can see what others have done. The municipality s governing board ultimately is responsible for adopting the comprehensive plan. However, the governing board either may prepare the plan itself, or instead may delegate that function to the local planning board or to a special board created for the purpose. If prepared PAGE 4 by a planning board or special board, that board must refer the proposed draft plan to the governing body for ultimate adoption. Some communities may choose to utilize a consultantassisted process for preparing the comprehensive plan. Most successful planning efforts begin with a survey of existing conditions and a determination of the community s vision for the future. Local governments considering adopting a comprehensive plan must follow SEQRA procedures as early in their deliberations as possible. Adoption of a comprehensive plan is a Type 1 Action for purposes of SEQRA review, meaning that it is an action more likely to require the preparation of an EIS. The local governing body, as the agency responsible for adopting the plan, must be the lead agency, and is therefore responsible for assuring and documenting that SEQRA requirements are met. The board preparing the comprehensive plan must hold one or more public hearings and other meetings, as it deems necessary, to assure full opportunity for citizen participation. Additionally, the governing body must hold a public Continued on Page 5....

5 hearing on the proposed plan prior to its adoption. The proposed draft comprehensive plan also must be submitted to the appropriate county or regional planning agency for review under General Municipal Law, 239-m. Adopted plans and amendments are filed with the municipal clerk and with the county planning agency. Adopted comprehensive plans must be reviewed periodically by the local government that adopted the plan. Many communities wish to revisit their plans every five or ten years, while some undertake a continuous improvement process. Once your community adopts a comprehensive plan, the plan must be consulted prior to adoption or amendment of any land use or zoning regulations, and these regulations should be consistent with the plan. Further, zoning and land use MUNICIPAL NEWS DOES YOUR COMMUNITY HAVE A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN? CONTINUED.. regulations must be adopted in accordance with a well-considered or comprehensive plan in order to be enforceable. In addition, other governmental agencies that are considering capital projects on lands covered by the adopted comprehensive plan must take the plan into consideration. Also, any actions taken by the municipal planning board and zoning board of appeals must be consistent with the adopted comprehensive plan. The real value of a comprehensive plan is in how it is used and implemented. This article was prepared using excerpts from the New York State Department of State Division of Local Government Services publications, Zoning and the Comprehensive Plan and Local Government Handbook, which are two of the James A. Coon Local Government Technical Series publications. STW PUBLISHES CEDS DOCUMENT PAGE 5 Southern Tier West published the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) document in September, and submitted it to the federal government. The CEDS document attempts to incorporate county and community strategies for economic development, and also can provide direction and suggest strategies to communities seeking to focus their own economic development activities. The CEDS also contains a list of current economic development projects that are being proposed for implementation over the coming 12 to 18 months is your project in the list? The CEDS document can be of use during grants seeking activities, as many funding sources ask whether your project has been included in an adopted strategic plan. Please take the time to peruse the document, and if you have a project you d like to see added, please call Tom Barnes at x You can read and download the CEDs and Southern Tier West s other planning documents at publications.html.
