The Village of Cold Spring’s Code Update Committee will conduct its third public meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018 at 7pm at the Cold Spring firehouse.
The Code Update Committee is responsible for examining 29 topics identified by NYSERDA (the New York State Energy and Research Development Authority) to determine what changes to these topics, if any, should be made to the Village Code. Once the Code Update Committee has completed its work on these 29 topics, the committee will make recommendation to the Village Board for Village Code changes. The Village Board will then evaluate these recommendations and then proceed to a Public Hearing. Once completed, the Village can then proceed in completing the Local Waterfront Revitalization Program.
Two prior public meetings have been held covering topics in the “Use” category (10 topics) and in the “Appearances” category (7 topics). All materials from these public meetings are available on the Village website. Additional public meetings will be held in the future covering topics in the “Procedures” category (5 topics) and the “Consistency and Clarity” category (2 topics).
The purpose of the public meeting on August 22 is to obtain public input on the “Environment” category that will be presented. The five topics are: Outdoor Lighting Standards; Evaluate Steep Slope Standards; Evaluate Flooding Standards; Evaluate Adopting a Ridgeline Protection Overlay District; Green Building Standards. An overview of each topic will be presented along with the committee’s recommendations for changes.
All are welcome to attend.
