Yates rejects Route 54A name changes

YATES COUNTY—The Yates County Planning Board did not approve the proposed Jerusalem Route 54A name changes, at their board meeting, April 23.
Recently, the Jerusalem board recommended that addresses for two sections of 54A be re-named to Penn Yan-Branchport Road and Branchport West Lake Road.
Brian Slack, with Genesee/Finger Lakes Regional Planning Council, said the decision was made in part because of a letter from the Yates County Sheriff’s Department.  Slack said the planning board also had concerns that first responders would have a hard time finding a location on Route 54A with the changes.
Sheriff Ron Spike said his department’s recommendation was no matter what the naming changes are, “Route 54A” should still be included. He said he had no problem with part of the route being named Penn Yan-Branchport Road, but recommends it be something like “Penn Yan-Branchport Road Route 54A.” Spike said that was their recommendation when part of Route 54 in Milo was renamed to “East Lake Road, Route 54.” He added he wanted the planning board to know not everyone on Jerusalem’s address committee was behind the changes as proposed.
Slack said the planning board also approved Jerusalem’s local law creating rules for townhouses built in the Branchport Service Park area. He said one area the board had questions about was townhouses built within 75 feet of the shore that would create a non-conforming lot.
The board approved a Special Use Permit for Patrick Hoke to construct 10 more wooden vacation rentals in Starkey.  The buildings would be part of Savannah House property.  The board had no comment on the referral.  Slack said the remaining request approved was Rob Neu of Freedom Ranch in Starkey.  Neu wanted to have public horseback riding with a barn and a low elements challenge course.
The planning board approved writing a letter of support for the Restore NY grant proposal for four buildings in Penn Yan. Steve Griffin, CEO of Yates County Industrial Development Agency, said there was $2.5 million available for renovations.
