WHEATFIELD – The Town Board will hold three public hearings at the start of Monday night’s meeting.
The first hearing, at 7, deals with a proposed amendment to the town code that would impose a minimum buffer of 20 feet between residential developments and neighboring agricultural land. Supervisor Robert B. Cliffe said the easement proposal was recommended by the town’s agricultural focus group. The provision would limit what the residential landowner could do in that 20 feet of space; for example, tree planting would be allowed but erecting a shed would not.
At 7:15, a hearing is on tap regarding a provision allowing overdue building permit fees to be added to the ensuing year’s property taxes. And at 7:20, the board will hear comments on a town code amendment imposing a new fee for an extension of time needed to complete work on a project for which a building permit was obtained.
