Public Hearing Notice: To Consider Adoption of Local Law H-V1 of 2022 to Amend Chapter 57 (Zoning) Concerning the Regulations Governing Tree Preservation




NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a Public Hearing will be held by the Town Board of the Town of Monroe, Orange County, New York, on October 3 at 7:00 p.m. or as soon there-after as may be heard at the Town of Monroe Town Hall, 1465 Orange Turnpike, Monroe, New York 10950.

The Town Board of the Town of Monroe is considering adoption of Local Law H-V1 of 2022 to amend Chapter 57 (Zoning) concerning the regulations governing Tree Preservation.  The Town Board has received notice that the provisions of the law are overly complex, do not accomplish the stated intent, have contradictory provisions, and are overly restrictive.  The Town Board is considering amendments suggested by their planning professionals that would significantly simplify the regulations, properly apportion jurisdiction between the Building Inspector and the Planning Board and establish a more reasonable “as-of-right” tree removal regime that allows for homeowner preferences, and a minimum reasonable amount of tree clearing in association with subdivisions, site plans and special use permits.

The Town of Monroe will make every effort to assure that the public hearing is accessible to persons with disabilities. Anyone requiring special assistance and/or reasonable accommodations should contact the Town Clerk.

The proposed Local Law is available at the Town Clerk’s Office, at 1465 Orange Turnpike, Monroe, New York, 10950, Monday – Thursday, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm.

Dated:  September 23, 2022


                                                BY ORDER OF THE TOWN OF MONROE 
                                                VALERIE BITZER, TOWN CLERK
