North Broadway Re-Zoning

The Board of Trustees opened a public hearing on June 3, 2019 to consider revisions to the zoning for the larger properties along North Broadway, specifically properties commonly known as the “Maxon Property”, the “Carafiello Property”, Abbott House, and the Holy Spirit Association. In updating the Village's Comprehensive Plan, the Comprehensive Plan Committee specifically recommended the addition of new uses for these properties.

The office and institutional uses that currently exist are through special permits and variances granted many years ago. The Comprehensive Plan Committee felt that it was important to add uses that are more consistent with what is currently there. This is a proactive effort to set the zoning in the area without current applications from any developers.

Some of the more significant of those proposed new uses include multi-family residential (including single-family attached, but clustered in order to maximize open space), assisted living facilities (of a fixed density), offices, boutique hotels, small practice medical offices, and restaurants.

The Village's planning consultant presented the new zoning at the public hearing. A copy of the presentation is available for viewing along with a copy of the proposed local law.

The public hearing is still open and will continue on July 10, 2019 at 7pm.
