Wayne proposes land use regulation changes

WAYNE—The Wayne town board approved, during the Tuesday, March 9 monthly meeting, to hold public hearings for changes to both the land use laws and the comprehensive plan.
The hearing for the comprehensive plan was scheduled during the planning board’s next regular meeting, April 5, at 7 p.m.  The land use regulations public hearing will be Tuesday, April 13 at 7 p.m., at the next regular town board meeting.  The changes to the land use regulations include; removing the fee schedule from the document, changes to what is included in an appearance ticket, and which board handles a non-conforming property/structure.
Supervisor Stephen Butchko said the fee schedule, and all references to fees, would be removed from the regulations.  That way, the town board would be able to more easily change it at the annual reorganizational meeting, at the start of the year.
Gill Harrop, code enforcement officer, suggested that a request about a non-conforming lot or structure should go before the zoning board of appeals.  He explained the planning board currently deals with requests about such properties, but shouldn’t.  Harrop added a non-conforming property or structure is one that does not meet the current rules, but was built/established before the regulations went into effect.
Harrop also recommended that when a criminal proceedings appearance ticket for a land use violation is issued, it should include what the charges are.  He said currently that document is filed separately, but should accompany the ticket.
The planning board suggested the recreational vehicle sub-committee become part of the planning board, as well as including RVs in the comprehensive plan.  The board also suggested something be added about demolishing a dilapidated and dangerous structure.
In other business:  Jim Wood, town board member, announced that the Steuben County Cornell Cooperative Extension was giving Wayne an award for forming the county’s first agricultural advisory council.  He will accept the award for the town, March 19.
Butchko pointed out that the town court proceedings had been moved into the meeting room.
The next regular board meeting is Tuesday, April 13, at 7 p.m.
