Port Henry to create zoning commission

Volunteers sought to propose zoning regulations

— The Port Henry board is considering a zoning ordinance for the village.

To research the issue, trustees are seeking volunteers to serve as members of a zoning commission. The zoning commission is to recommend boundaries for proposed zoning districts and appropriate regulations.

The commission will hold public hearings and submit a final report to the village board before the board takes action on a possible zoning local law.

The zoning commission will be a separate body, independent of the village board. The commission will focus solely on the preparation of draft zoning regulations.

Those draft regulations will then go the village board for consideration and possible adoption.

People interested in serving as a member of the Port Henry zoning commission are asked to send a letter to The Village of Port Henry, Re: Zoning Commission Membership, 4303 Main St., Port Henry 12974.

There is currently no zoning in the village of Port Henry, although there is a local law establishing a moratorium on street level residential development in a portion of the village that is due to expire in October of 2012.
