Negative Declaration And Public Hearing

Wyoming County - The Town of Warsaw, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Recodification of the Zoning Law of the Town of Warsaw to specifically include 2004 Amendments will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. A public hearing will be held on August 9, 2004, at 7:00 p.m. at the Town of Warsaw town offices located at 27 N. Main Street, Warsaw, NY. The action involves the recodification of the original zoning ordinance of the Town of Warsaw to specifically include 2004 amendments. The Town recognizing that different home occupations/businesses exhibit varying potentials for generating off-site impacts, the Town proposed to adopt three (3) tiers of businesses for the purposes of establishing review procedures and approval conditions. The three (3) tiers are: (1) Home Occupations Minor; (2) Home Occupations Major; and (3) Home-Based Businesses. These proposed changes to the zoning law also attempt to further define the definitions of "Junkyard," "Junk," and "Unregistered Motor Vehicles." The "Parking of a Recreational Vehicle" is also addressed. The amendments to the law bring the existing law up to date with the overall community objectives. The project is located in the Town of Warsaw.
