Lumberland changes zoning hearing date


November 23, 2011

GLEN SPEY, NY - The Town of Lumberland has changed the date of its public hearing on its proposed zoning rewrite to Monday, December 12 at 7 p.m. The hearing will be held in the Town of Lumberland Town Hall, located at 1053 Proctor Rd. The date had previously been set for Wednesday, November 30.

Rescheduled Meeting

The Town of Lumberland rescheduled the public hearing on zoning to a day when local parents with children in the school music program will be unable to attend.

When called at the town office, Zoning Board Clerk Susan Wade offered that public comment may still be made in writing. Heather Jacksy, the coordinator of the new code added in a separate conversation that this has been a 2 year process and plenty of time has been provided to make comment.

This is a public hearing -- appearing in person is a democratic expression of personal support for against the new zoning. This rescheduling excludes a large portion of the public from appearing or worse discounts the importance of their ability to attend.

Telling these same people that they 'had their chance', asks the questions "Is this a real hearing or just a rubber stamp' Was this an intentional move to exclude people who live and work in the town in favor of those from out of town?
