Planning Board Minutes-September


The regular meeting of the Lindley Planning Board was called to order at 7:05 p.m. by Chairperson, Mary Lentzen. Members present included Manley Davis, Jim White, Gerry Gross, Mark Swan and Earl Titus (7:13 p.m.). The CEO, David Fuller, and 1 visitor were also present.

Minutes of the August 15, 2005 meeting were read; Manley moved to accept the minutes as read, Mark seconded and the Motion passed unanimously.

Mary noted a Public Hearing on the Zoning Law Draft was held on August 16, 2005 with only two residents of the town in attendance. A Public Hearing to vote on the Zoning Law proposal will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2005.

Mary distributed copies of Planning News concerning the conference Oct. 9-12 in Saratoga and has on file the Guide to Technical and Financial Assistance for Economic and Business Development Leaders.

Dave had no CEO report as his computer died; stated Mr. Heffner still has not cleaned up and Dave needs more time to pursue this matter. Mr. Heffner was issued a ticket some time ago and while Mr. Heffner has talked via phone with the Town Justice, he has never appeared in court. Time is running out on the ticket and the Sheriff may need to become involved.

Mary has asked Diana Hill to place an ad for another Board member as Jason Ballard can no longer serve.

As there was no further business, Earl made a Motion to adjourn at 7:14 p.m., Gerry seconded and all agreed.

Respectfully submitted,

Janice Oberlander
Recording Clerk

I also reminded everyone about the importance of getting the transportation bond act passed if we are ever to see the completion of Rt. 15. Hopefully this money will not be sent to the south now that all the devestation has occured there.

YES!! it is very important to get people to vote in November, the Transporation Act must pass, or we will most likely never see Route 15, completed.

The new Zoning Law was presented for public review on the 27th as scheculed. The committee, chaired by Mary Lentzen, has done an excellent job on this arduous task. May I be one of the first to say a hearty Thank You for improving the future perspectives for Lindley!

This is perhaps the most important document governing the town. It sets the guidelines that establish our future living environment. The effort they applied trying to incorporate all pertinent views, provide balance between the individual and the community, and incorporate all laws and regulations needs to be appreciated. The highest compliment that can be given is to read it looking for the total view it provides. (The plot line is a little weak and has a tendency to cause sleep involuntarily at times.) There certainly will be a point or two that will not match everyones' liking but that is expected in our multi-faceted society. Look at the depth and balance to see how it works to maintain Lindley as we know it.

This is a major improvement over the old Zoning Law which was not tailored to the Town's residents and was less than clear on many issues. (If you really want to go to sleep read the old one)

These folks were not compensated for this work. They spent many, many hours to include frustration and arguements to provide a major input on the Town's future. Read or scan all of it to see this and thank them when you get the opportunity!
