There will be a public hearing on the Zoning Revisions developed by the Zoning Advisory Committee with the assistance of our consultant, LaBella Associates. The files included here are the most recent versions of the draft zoning regulations. This version is what the Town Board set in motion for later adoption at our September 9, 2019 regular meeting. These zoning regulations were sent to the Orleans County Planning Board for review and comment at their September 26, 2019 meeting.

The public hearing is scheduled for October 3, 2019 @ 7:00 PM at the Town Hall. All comments will be accepted at that time and will be considered for any further modifications to the Zoning Regulations.

Zoning Regulations – Summary of Changes Made Since July Draft

The Zoning Steering Committee, which was established by the Town Board in 2018 and has been meeting since last fall, has completed the majority of their work. The next step for the committee, and our consultant, LaBella Associates, is a public informational meeting. This meeting will be held on August 5th, 2019 at 7:00 PM at the Town Hall. For interested parties, electronic copies of the draft of the revised Zoning Law, along with a revised Zoning Map, are provided here below.

All are welcome at the public informational meeting. The feedback received during this meeting will be reviewed and used by the committee and the consultant to make final revisions to the draft Zoning Law, which will then be sent to the Zoning Board of Appeals and Town Board for consideration. The Town Board is the entity which has the authority to adopt the proposed Zoning Law, and that will follow the normal process of having ample notice, along with a public hearing, before being enacted.
