Otsego County - The Town of Milford Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Amendments to Town of Milford Zoning Law will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves amendments to the Zoning law to include in the definition of "Home Occupation" internet procurement and sales provided other criteria for home occupations are met. The amendments define the terms "plot," "solid fuel storage," and "propane storage." The amendments define a "shed" to not exceed one hundred square feet. The amendments add requirements for planned development districts, site plan review and special use permits. Special uses and non-conforming uses under the proposed amendments will expire if ceased for more than one year as opposed to six months. The amendments include reference to the Town Board's schedule of fees for short term transient rentals and other temporary seasonal uses. The amendments add a provision to allow the Planning Board to grant a temporary special use permit for one to three years. The amendments omit a reference to one hundred and eighty days for non-conforming natural gas and petroleum leases. The amendments increase the civil penalty for violation of the Zoning Law. The amendments clarify the Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals procedures for site plan review, special use permits, and variances. The amendments reincorporate former provision 5.3 "Permitted Accessory Structures and Uses" d. "the keeping of not more than three (3) roomers, lodgers, or transient guests" and e. "quarters for servants employed upon the premises". The project is located throughout the Town of Milford, New York.
