Mount Saint Mary College hosted a public outreach program for the Comprehensive Plan for Orange County on Monday, November 21.

The Comprehensive Plan embodies a community vision for guiding growth in Orange County. It helps the county manage growth to ensure the quality of life desired by Orange County residents.

“Our students joined the community and got to see economic policy in the making,” said Tracey Niemotko, professor of accounting and chair of the Mount’s School of Business. “We had standing room only.”

David Church, Orange County Planning commissioner, presented at the event along with planners Megan Tennermann and Zak Coleman.

The event was sponsored by the college’s School of Business.
