Zoning proposal hopes to aid businesses

TICONDEROGA - The Ticonderoga Zoning Revision Committee is currently working to make the town's zoning more pro-business.

That's the aim of local officials who are considering revisions to the Ti zoning ordinance.

"The proposed regulations will make it easier to work from home with home industries to be allowed in all districts with limitations on the size and intensity of the business based on the location," said Brandy Saxton, a consultant assisting with the project.

More types of businesses will also be allowed in many areas of the town on an appropriate scale.

The reworked law is projected to allow small stores in many areas, but large stores only in a few areas.

The Hague Road area from Moses Circle south will allow more tourism-and recreation-oriented businesses.

Zoning will also be the same on both sides of Hague Road (Route 9N). Currently it is possible to be in a different zone depending on whether a property is located on the east or west side of Hague Road.

The zoning revision committee will work on the law into spring 2010, and will prepare drafts of each section for public review and comment. To access drafts and other information, people can follow the zoning and planning board link on the town website, http://www.townofticonderoga.org, or contact Saxton at 546-7470.

A public information meeting on the zoning districts and map has been scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 11, at the Ticonderoga Community Building auditorium.

This project is funded by a Quality Communities grant from the New York State Department of State.
