Proposed zoning change creates controversy ahead of Waterloo meeting

A proposed amendment to Waterloo’s zoning has drawn a lot of criticism over the last several weeks, and on Monday, a public hearing will take place.

The Waterloo Town Board will meet to hold a session over the proposal, which will change would reignite a multi-year battle over a parcel owned by Seneca Meadows on Burgess Road.

The Finger Lakes Times reports that the change would allow the landfill to construct access roads in the current R-1 zone that trucks could use to take soil mined from Meadow View Mine across Burgess Road and into the landfill on Salcman Road.

SMI has an active permit from the DEC for Meadow View Mine.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the municipal building on Virginia Street.
