Village to Hold 2 Public Hearings on June 23

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that the Village Board of Trustees of the Village of Tuxedo Park will hold a two public hearings at its regular monthly meeting on the 23rd day of June 2008, at 7:30 p.m., on two proposed local laws, summarized below, which amend the Village Code of the Village of Tuxedo Park, at the Village Hall, 80 Lorillard Road, Tuxedo Park, New York:

Local Law Introductory #2 of 2008 – A Local Law amending Chapter 100 (Zoning) by creating a “Gateway Overlay District,” repealing Article II and replacing that article with a new Article II, and amending ARticle IV, District Regulations, to regulate activities in the said overlay district.

The areas of the new overlay district are shown on a map accompanying the local law, but, in general, these areas adjoin the primary village gateway roads that provide access to Tuxedo Park, namely: Tuxedo Road and South Gate/East Lake Road.

The objectives of the local law are as follows:

  1. Protect and enhance the historic and scenic qualities of the Village’s gateways which are integral visual elements of this national register historic district.
  2. Subordinate new structures, especially principal buildings, in the landscape, so that the view corridors observed from the Village’s gateway roads are protected.
  3. Stabilize and improve property values in the Village by prohibiting incompatible disturbances to the landscape.
  4. Regulate the location of new structures and limit landscape disturbance to properties in the overlay district during site plan and subdivision plat review in order to effectuate the purposes of this section.
  5. Reduce the number of existing accessory or appurtenant structures that detract from the historic and scenic quality of the G-O district where it i determined that said structures do not contribute to the character of historic district.
  6. Encourage and allow the rehabilitation, improvement or alteration of existing structures to effectuate the objectives of this section.

Local Law Introductory #4 of 2008 – A Local Law amending Chapter 65 (Lakes and Ponds).

At said time and place the Board of Trustees will hear all those in favor of, or opposed to, the adoption of said local laws. A true copy of said proposed local laws may be obtained from the Village Clerk at the Village Hall, 80 Lorillard Road, Tuxedo Park, Monday through Friday during the hours of 9:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M.
