Cumberland Head Road now owned by town

PLATTSBURGH — Clinton County legislators formally transferred care of the Cumberland Head perimeter road to the Town of Plattsburgh.
Legislators unanimously approved the move Wednesday night.
The town had previously agreed to the move, as well.
The transfer was part of an agreement with the town when plans were hatched to build the new connector road.
The $8 million connector road splits the peninsula, offering a smoother, quicker route to the Lake Champlain Transportation Co. ferry landing.
Traffic has decreased on the six-mile perimeter road, also known as Route 314, since the connector road was opened last December.
The town will now take over maintenance of the shoulder-less perimeter road.

NCCS to again address improvement of facilities

CHAMPLAIN — Northeastern Clinton Central School Board meets again at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 3 and is expected to address the issue of facilities improvements.
Most recently, the board heard a recommendation from the district's Five-Year Facilities Committee to jettison ideas of consolidating the two elementary schools, located in Mooers and Rouses Point. Cost was one reason; the committee also found creating one large facility would be counter to program objectives, as children learn better in smaller environments.
The School Board is now looking over all five scenarios for facilities upgrades considered by that committee, including one that would reopen Champlain Elementary School.
"Hopefully, they will be making a recommendation or approve one of the options," said Superintendent of Schools Robert Hebert.
He said the Facilities Committee, which volunteered to help with whichever project is chosen, won't meet again until after that time.
Part of its mission, said Hebert, would be to try to maximize state aid and therefore lower the cost of making the improvements.
