Solar Energy Proposed Text Amendment discussed at Planning Board meeting...

The final item on last night's Planning Board agenda was a recommendation to the town board for the proposed solar energy zone text amendment.

After a few minutes of discussion, the Planning Board recommended to support the text amendments as written for Local Law Introductory "I" of 2017 Solar Energy Systems.

The next step is for the town board to hold a Public Hearing to give residents an opportunity to comment on the proposed changes to the current solar energy town code.

At the last town board meeting on November 8th, Councilman Reynolds recommended that the Public Hearing be scheduled for the next town board meeting. The town board voted to adopt a resolution setting the Public Hearing date for December 13, 2017.

After the Public Hearing is closed, the town board can discuss further and either adopt, change or deny the new text amendment.

For those residents interested in solar energy, here are before and after copies of the solar code for comparison:
If you have an interest in solar energy, plan to attend the public hearing on December 13, 2017 to voice an opinion or comment before the town board makes their final decision whether or not to adopt the law.

Here is the portion of the Planning Board meeting with the discussion of the proposed changes to the solar law:
