Proposed changes to the Ticonderoga zoning law are on hold. The town board has appointed a committee to review the proposed revisions after learning the town planning board is too busy to complete the task.
continued Matt Fuller, town attorney, said the proposed law, if adopted, will have no impact on existing structures. They will be grandfathered under the new law.
The proposed zoning changes focus on three keys areas, according to Saxton — commercial property, downtown and lakefront properties.
A public hearing on the proposed zoning law was held in December and the town board will continue to accept written comments until it takes action to adopt the measure.
Written comments on the zoning changes can Emailed to Malaney at firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to the Community Building, Montcalm Street, Ticonderoga 12883.
The proposed law is available at the town clerk’s office as well as online at www.townofticonderoga.org
Malaney expects the town board to adopt the new zoning plan once the committee completes its review.
“I am extremely optimistic that we will have an exceptional, working document,” Malaney said. “I’m confident it will be very user-friendly and be an important tool for our planning board in the future.”
