NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING
Attached please find for review and comment a copy of proposed Local Law No. 3 of 2014 to amend the Zoning Law for the Town of Tyre that is being considered by the Town Board for the Town of Tyre (the "Town Board"). You are receiving notice and an invitation to comment on this local law as a representative of the Towns and other municipalities adjoining the Town of Tyre (the "Town") or as representatives of the Town of Tyre Zoning Board of Appeals, Town of Tyre Planning Board, and County of Seneca Planning Board.
The proposed Local Law No. 3 of 2014 would amend the Town's Zoning Law to: (i) add the term "Planned Unit Development" to the list of "Type of District" under Article II, Section 2.202, and add the designation "PUD" for such district; (ii) add a definition of Planned Unit Development District to Article XI, Section 11.1102; and (iii) show on the Town's Zoning Map the Planned Unit Development District for the Wilmot Casino and Resort as all the land within the Town of Tyre in the area east of New York State Route 414 and north of the New York State Thruway, consisting of approximately 84.9 acres of land (Tax Account No. 12.00-01-36), thereby changing the Agricultural use designation for that land to a Planned Unit Development District designation. We note that the Town Board will not act on proposed Local Law No. 3 of 2014 unless it first approves the proposed Development Plan submitted to the Town Board by Whitetail 414, LLC for the Wilmot Casino and Resort, as such plan may be amended to address any Town Board concerns, which approval the Town Board has not issued
