Regular Meeting

Chairman Wright opened the meeting for discussion of an application by Kevin Hardesty to subdivide one acre from a 34-acre parcel to be combined with an adjacent parcel at 490 State Route 90.

Attorney Snyder read the letter that was received by the Cortland County Planning Department which stated the board found the 1.0-acre lot is non-buildable and must be combined with an adjacent parcel. Proof of the consolidation must be provided to the town code enforcement officer. It was determined the rest of the request is technically adequate and has no state or county wide impact. The application was returned for local determination.

Chairman Wright reviewed the short environmental assessment form with the board members and all questions were answered no.

Member Andersen made the motion to declare a negative declaration under SEQR. Member Young seconded the motion. With all members in favor saying “aye”, none opposed and none abstained. The motion was carried unanimous 4,0,0.

The applicant was advised to submit $150 to the Homer Town Clerk. A $50 application fee, a $50 lot fee and a $50 public hearing fee.
