I hereby direct all departments of the Town of Monroe, to take steps necessary to protect life and property, public infrastructure, and provide such emergency assistance deemed necessary.  This state of emergency has been declared due to the ongoing COVID-19 / Coronavirus Disease 2019, which was initially declared a pandemic by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared this disease a world Pandemic on March 11, 2020, the Governor of the State of New York declared a state of emergency for New York State on March 07, 2020  and on March 13, 2020 the President of the United States filed an Emergency Declaration in regard to COVID-19.  Subsequently, a recent surge in COVID cases and COVID variants has resulted in new State of Emergency declarations by the Governor of the State of New York, including Executive Order 11 of 2021 (November 26, 2021). This emergency is of sufficient severity and magnitude to warrant that certain emergency protective measures to be taken in response to the COVID-19 pandemic emergency to protect the health, safety, and welfare of all the Town residents. As a result of this ongoing pandemic the Town may need to take actions to suspend local laws, policies and regulations in order to respond to such pandemic/State of Emergency and Local Emergency Order will be issued as necessary to do so and to ensure the public safety, public property or life, health, and safety of residents require immediate action.

Planning Board Workshop Meeting Thursday, December 9, 2021 at 7:15 PM (Monroe Town Hall 1465 Orange Turnpike)

Please click here to view the Agenda.

The Town of Monroe Planning Board is pleased to announce the return of in-person Planning Board Meetings at Town Hall, 1465 Orange Turnpike, Monroe, New York.

Given the current times, please note the following procedures that must be adhered to should you choose to attend a meeting:

Following Governor Cuomo’s adoption of the CDC guidelines lifting the mask mandate for vaccinated individuals, masks will no longer be required at town meetings for individuals who are fully vaccinated (*you are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after your 2nd dose of the vaccine).  Individuals who are immunocompromised or are unvaccinated should continue to wear masks and socially distance.

- Please be advised that all employees, board members and visitors will continue to partake in a temperature screening upon arrival to all town buildings until further notice.   

- All meeting attendees must enter the upper level main entrance where a contactless temperature check will be conducted. To assist in contact tracing efforts, meeting attendees will be asked to provide their name and contact information. All temperatures under 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit will be recorded as a pass on a log-sheet. When a body temperature above 100.4 is detected, the actual temperature reading will be recorded and traced, and it will be noted as “fail” on the log-sheet. Any individual with an elevated body temperature of 100.4 will be asked to return home immediately and contact their physician.

Lastly, please continue to be respectful of others by remaining at home should you feel ill or exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19. 

We are excited to share the newly renovated meeting room with our residents. We appreciate your cooperation in adhering to our safety guidelines and thank you for your ongoing patience and support!
