Watkins Glen, NY : The Village of Watkins Glen Zoning Board of Appeals meeting scheduled for August 17, 2017 will be postponed as officials review procedures and recent applications for variances that have come before the Board. Village officials will work with the Schuyler County Planning Department and the Southern Tier Central Regional Planning and Development organization to bring processes up to date in order to fully comply with all State laws governing zoning. Greg Larnard, Code Enforcement Official with the Village of Watkins Glen said, “I have made a determination that all of the area variance applications need to be reviewed again, taking into consideration the feelings of our residents and our County Planning Commission, prior to any further Village of Watkins Glen ZBA decisions. The Schuyler County Planning Commission will review all of the variance applications that have been submitted at their meeting on September 14, and a Village of Watkins Glen ZBA meeting and public hearing will be scheduled soon after in September.” The Village will work directly with the County to create an updated document that will clearly explain to applicants and the community how the zoning board approval process will work.
