Lack of quorum sends projects to local boards in Yates County

The last meeting of the Yates County Planning Board was forced into cancellation due to a failure to draw a quorum. Planner Dan Long says the attendance was expected to barely meet the necessary number of members, but at the last moment, one member was unable to attend due to a family emergency.

Consequently, all the applications due for review were returned to the towns and villages with no county action taken, for or against. In such cases, says Long, the municipalities are now free move forward on these applications, which include:

‒ Penn Yan: The Village of Penn Yan, applying for the McFetridge Family Trust, Rte. 14A (newly annexed into village), requested a zoning review for a designation of a zoning district classification of general commercial for the proposed Tractor Supply store.

‒ Torrey: Marvin Zimmerman, authorized representative for Arthur Zimmerman, adjacent to 2901 State Route 14, requested a site plan review and a a special use permit to construct a 45 ft. X 100 ft. building and adjacent parking area, for 10 vehicles, to operate an auto and light truck repair facility.
