PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that there remains an open public hearing to be held on October 10th 2019 at 6:00 P.M. at the Offices of the Town of Ticonderoga, 132 Montcalm Street, Ticonderoga. This public hearing is in regards to a proposed local law amending the Town of Ticonderoga Zoning Ordinance regarding special use permits, site plan review, allowed uses, solar related uses, definitions and ground disturbance, among other amendments. All parties interested may be heard at that time.
Through numerous public discussions over the past few years, the Town Board has decided to amend the Zoning Ordinance to accomplish a few much needed updates. First and most significant is that the amended zoning ordinance will now combine the site plan review law into one document. In doing so, definitions have been updated and consolidated, in some cases, to better communicate interpretation of special use permits and allowed uses. Also, a section on solar related uses and ground disturbances has been added to meet the desires of the public looking to deploy this new technology.
In short, the amended zoning ordinance with integrated site plan review law will provide a better framework to which the planning board, zoning board of appeals, code enforcement office and general public can more clearly understand the direction this ordinance has been providing for the past several decades. This is not an overhaul of the ordinance, but simply an exercise in clarifying the content for those who need to follow or to enforce what has already been put into practice.

The Town plans on utilizing guidance from NYSERDA to implement solar criteria into the amended zoning law. Please visit their website and review their resources for more information.
