Meeting: The Jerusalem planning board held their monthly meeting Thursday, Sept. 6. Attendance: All board members were in attendance. Action: The board approved the site plan for a multiple dwelling facility for the age 50 and older community along Central Avenue. Discussion without action: The board was updated on a fencing law. Councilman Patrick Killen said the board wants a law similar to other places and that it is being reworked. • The board discussed the possibility of a local right to farm law. Killen said both the state and county have right to farm laws, so it would be a good idea for the town to implement one as well to help reaffirm the town’s commitment to farming. • Deb Koop gave a presentation to the board on renewable energy. The board scheduled a renewable energy workshop to be held at the Branchport Fire Hall Tuesday, Sept. 18 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. for more information. Killen said there will also be a tour of four Jerusalem farms that use renewable energy resources Saturday, Sept. 27. • Killen said the board is still waiting on word about the Branchport Hamlet Plan grant application.
