PB Case No.: 05-20                                               Zone:  

Address: Citywide                                 Proposed Action: Zoning Text & Map Amendment

Applicant: City of Utica                                

Owner: City of Utica

 

The City of Utica is proposing the adoption of a new Zoning Ordinance. Pursuant to  Section 2-29-123(2) of the City’s zoning ordinance, “The Planning Board shall commence a public hearing on the proposed amendment no more than 90 days from the date of the application for said amendment is filed with the Commissioner of Codes Enforcement. Public notice of such hearing shall be made in the prescribed manner.”

 

At the July 16th meeting, the Planning Board held a public hearing and ultimately tabled the case in order to allow Oneida County’s Department of Planning the necessary 30 day to provide comment. The 30 period has since expired with no comment from Oneida County.  Present at the public hearing were two representatives for Northrup Grumman/Lucas Western who own approximately 22 acres of land at the former Bendix site in South Utica. They had submitted a written request for the Board to consider revisions to the Zoning Code.

 

At tonight’s meeting, the Board will vote to make a recommendation to the Common Council either in favor or in opposition to the adoption of the proposed Zoning Text and Map Amendment.
