Hunter to extend moratorium another three months

Sep 24, 2015 6:04 am
Jim Planck is reporting in The Daily Mail the Hunter Town Board will hold public hearings next week on extending the suspension of three land use local laws for an additional three months. Town Land Use Committee Chairman David Kukle told the town board last month more time was needed for the committee to finish its revision of the local land-use laws. This will be the second, three-month extension of the town's ban on land-use applications, initiated in October 2014. The original moratorium was intended to last for nine months. During the moratorium, no applications have been processed by the planning or town boards, no approvals were given, and no action was taken on site plan reviews, subdivision laws and lot-line alterations. The building ban halted at least two pending ventures from moving forward, the five-duplex Williamsburg Residential project and Cortina Mountain Estates, a 95-unit subdivision adjacent to the Cortina Mountain Ski Resort. Hunter Town Supervisor Daryl Legg stressed the hearings next week are being held to consider the extension, not the proposed law changes. Hearings will be held beginning at 6 p.m., Tue., Sept. 29 at town hall in Tannersville. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
