Germantown looking at expanding event venues

May 31, 2017 7:15 am

Debby Mayer is reporting in The Columbia Paper the Germantown Town Board is considering a proposed law that would expand commercial event venues in the town. The law would also regulate how owners rent their properties for commercial events such as weddings, parties, meetings, reunions and corporate events. Those events would generate revenue for the town from fees paid by host properties. The law would permit music at venues from 10 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Supporters of the measure say local business and agriculture would be promoted; and agricultural properties would be able to diversify income sources, keeping farmland in production and maintaining agricultural structures such as barns. As drafted, the law is similar to legislation already passed in Livingston, Clermont and Red Hook. Public comment during a recent hearing on the proposed changes was mixed. The town board has also solicited comment from the Planning Board and the Zoning Board of Appeals, as well. Read the full story in The Columbia Paper.
