Special Delaware meeting planned

HORTONVILLE, NY — A special meeting has been scheduled for the Town of Delaware for Wednesday, July 31 at 7 p.m. at the town hall. The board will be considering proposed zoning changes. The change that has received the most attention at recent meetings concerns changing the zoning for parcels in the River Corridor, which would expand the number of special uses that might be created on those parcels.

River zoning changes debated

Proposed zoning changes to parcels in the river corridor were discussed at the Delaware Town Board meeting on July 10, with some disagreement regarding the regulations that will govern the parcels. Gerald Euker, chairman of the planning board, said the changes were proposed because some of the parcels in the corridor were split between two districts: the Delaware River District (DR) and the Rural District (RU). Several of them are to be rezoned so that they will now exist entirely in the RU.  Read more
