The census is a count of every person who lives in the United States and its territories. It happens every 10 years. In early 2020, you will be asked to count everyone who lives in your home as of April 1. Responding to the 2020 Census is a chance to shape your future.
The census can shape many different aspects of your community. Census results help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into states and communities each year. The results determine how many seats in Congress each state gets. FInally, it’s mandated by the U.S. Constitution in Article 1, Section 2: The U.S. has counted its population every 10 years since 1790.

Referral to the County Planning Board requires a “full statement of proposed action.” Current NYS General Municipal Law Section 239-m 1(c) defines full statement of such proposed action as “all materials required by and submitted to the referring body as an application on a proposed action, including a completed environmental assessment form and all other materials required by such referring body in order to make its determination of significance pursuant to the state environmental quality review act under article eight of the environmental conservation law and its implementing regulations. When the proposed action referred is the adoption or amendment of a zoning ordinance or local law, “full statement of such proposed action” shall also include the complete text of the proposed ordinance or local law as well as all existing provisions to be affected thereby, if any, if not already in the possession of the county planning agency or regional planning council. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this paragraph, any referring body may agree with the county planning agency or regional planning council as to what shall constitute a “full statement” for any or all of those proposed actions which said referring body is authorized to act upon.”

In Counties and Towns with populations the size of those here in Ontario County, Section 1622 of the New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law gives the power to set speed limits on all roads outside of villages and cities to the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT). If an individual wishes to have a speed limit changed on a Town, County or State Road, they must first submit a request to their Town Board. Some individuals send along a petition signed by other residents along the road. If the Town Board wishes that the speed limit be reviewed it first must pass a resolution requesting that the State conduct the review. The Town Clerk then sends a certified copy of the resolution with the appropriate NYSDOT form to the County Highway Superintendent for County review and forwarding to the NYSDOT. When the State review is complete, the Town is notified of the results. It usually takes several months for NYSDOT to complete their review. The appropriate municipality then installs the proper traffic signs if a change in speed limit is approved by the NYSDOT. Village Boards and City Councils have the power to establish speed limits on their streets. The County cannot, by itself, request review of a speed limit.
The County has no power to establish no parking zones on any road. Individuals wishing to have a "No Parking" zone established on a Town or County highway should go to their Town Board. Section 1660(a) of the New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law gives Town Boards the power to establish these zones on Town and County Highways. Once a Town Board designates a no parking zone on a portion of a Town or County road and the proper signs are erected by the Town Highway Department, the no parking requirement can be enforced. The Town needs State approval for no parking zones on State Highways.
