Kate Seckinger is reporting in The Daily Mail after more than eight years the proposed town of Cairo zoning law is scheduled for a final public hearing. A split Cairo Town Board voted Mon., Jul. 6, to set the hearing for 7 p.m., July 30 at a location to be determined. The proposed law was the product of 109 public meetings and was presented to the Cairo Town Board on July 7, 2011. Cairo Planning Board Chairman Daniel Benoit said the planning board has several issues with the proposed law, but its main concerns are that it will deter future residents from moving into Cairo and is anti-business. “What is being proposed regulates too much,” Benoit said. Town Supervisor Ted Banta said the claim that the proposed zoning law is “anti-business” couldn’t be further from the truth. “The document is definitely business-friendly,” Banta said. The proposed zoning law and other information regarding zoning in Cairo, is available at Town of Cairo [dot] com. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
