|May 6, 2014|
|7:00 pm||to||9:00 pm|
The Caroline Town Board will hold a public hearing on Tuesday May 6th, 7pm at the Historic Town Hall 2670 Slaterville Road, Slaterville Springs, to hear comments from the public regarding the proposed Site Plan Review local law.
The proposed local law has been revised based on the valuable input received at the February and March information sessions. You may read the revised version of the proposed site plan review law here.
Through Site Plan review, it is the intent of this local law to promote the health, safety and general welfare of the Town and its residents by providing for the review and approval of Development plans to ensure that land Development occurs in harmony with surrounding uses and the Town’s Comprehensive Plan, and without adversely impacting neighboring parcels, property values, public facilities, infrastructure, or the natural environment, or, as applicable, with mitigation measures in place to minimize or avoid any such adverse impacts. The Site Plan review process is intended to guide and protect the Town’s physical development and to help the Town grow in an orderly, efficient, safe, and economical manner which maintains and reflects the uniqueness of the Town and the character of the Town as a rural community and a beautiful and desirable place in which to live. It is further the intent of this local law to ensure that Development complies to the greatest extent possible with the currently adopted Town of Caroline Comprehensive Plan. It is not the intent of this local law to prohibit per se any Land Use Activities, but to ensure all new Land Use Activities subject to Site Plan review as specified in this law will meet the standards set forth in this local law.
The public is invited to provide comments to the Board regarding this proposed law. Please be prepared to make one statement not to exceed 3 minutes in length. If you have longer comments, or are unable to attend the meeting, please email your comments to email@example.com or mail to: PO Box 136, Slaterville Springs, NY 14881.
