August 15, 2018 - Public Hearing - Homeland Towers

The first topic on the August 15, 2018 town board agenda was a Public Hearing for "considering the factors set forth in the County of Monroe v. the City of Rochester case to determine whether any further zoning and/or land use review is required."

A brief presentation was made by the representatives of Homeland Towers to discuss their application to build a 190 ft. tower in Sherrillbrook Park.

Handouts showing Homeland Towers' justification for siting the tower in Sherrillbroook Park were made available to the town board, but none were available for the public as required by the Open Meetings Law.

The question was...can the Town of New Hartford overlook their own zoning laws regarding the height and placement of the tower on town-owned property at Sherrillbrook Park.

According to a brochure from the NYS Dept of State, "as a result of the 1988 case of Matter of County of Monroe v City of Rochester, it is now established that":
"In making a determination as to whether the actions of governmental units are “exempt” from local zoning regulations, the New York Court of Appeals in the 1988 case of Matter of County of Monroe v City of Rochester, 72 N.Y.2d 338, 533 N.Y.S.2d 702, established a new method for resolving inter-governmental land use disputes using the “balancing of public interests” analytic approach. Unless a statute exempts it, the encroaching governmental unit is presumed to be subject to the zoning regulations of the host community where the land is located. Working from that premise, a host community then considers several factors to determine whether or not it is in the public interest to continue to subject the encroaching government to its land use regulations."

The public hearing below (where no one from the public spoke) was to determine whether the public interest was being served relative to the placement of a 190 ft. tower in Sherrillbrook Park:
