NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
Proposed Adoption of Local Law No. P2 of 2019,
a Local law enacting a new Zoning Law for the Town of Chatham
The Town Board of the Town of Chatham shall conduct a public hearing on Thursday, May 23, 2019, at 6:00 pm, at the Tri-Village Fire Company, 111 County Route 13, Old Chatham, NY 12130, on proposed Local Law No. P2 of 2019, “A Local Law enacting a new Zoning Law for the Town of Chatham.”
Proposed Local Law No. P2 of 2019 is a proposed new Zoning Law for the Town of Chatham. The proposed local law will repeal and replace the current Town Zoning Law which is found in the Town Code at Chapter 180. The proposed new Zoning Law also includes the adoption of new Zoning Maps for the Town of Chatham.
The purpose of this proposed local law (proposed new Zoning Law) is to protect the Town’s citizens by regulating the use of land so as to protect the public health, safety and general welfare, and to carry out the land use policy goals and objectives established in the Town’s 2009 Comprehensive Plan, for the benefit of the town as a whole and to protect and preserve the Town’s rural-agricultural character. To accomplish that, the proposed new Zoning Law will regulate how land may be used throughout the Town of Chatham. The new Zoning Law and new Zoning Maps establish new Zoning Districts throughout the Town. It will also establish procedures and processes for the review and approval of the proposed uses of land in the Town. The proposed new Zoning Law will implement significant improvements and changes to virtually all aspects of the Town’s current Zoning Law (Ch. 180 of the Town Code). In these ways, the proposed local law may impact any person who owns, occupies, or uses land in the Town of Chatham. All such persons are encouraged to review the proposed new Zoning Law and to offer comment at the public hearing.
Copies of the proposed new Zoning Law and Zoning Maps are available for review by the public on the Town of Chatham web site at: https://www.chathamnewyork.us/. Copies of the proposed new Zoning Law and Zoning Maps are also available for review by the public at the Town of Chatham Public Library located at Town of Chatham Town Hall, 488 State Route 295, Chatham, NY 12037, and at the Town of Chatham Public Library located at North Chatham Free Library, 4287 State Route 203, North Chatham, NY 12132.
The Town of Chatham Town Board is interested in any comments the public may have on the proposed new Zoning Law. Comments may be made in-person at the public hearing. Comments may also be submitted in writing. Written comments must be submitted to, and received by, the Town Clerk by 12 noon on May, 23, 2019, in order to be included in the official record.
By Order of the Town Board of the Town of Chatham
