Common Council OKs zoning changes

GLOVERSVILLE – The Common Council on Tuesday approved zoning changes to the Pan Am property, at 312 W. Fulton St., and six properties within a city block.

DPW Director Kevin Jones said the property at 312 W. Fulton St. is about 4.8 acres and originally was zoned as a manufacturing site. The zoning was changed to a residential classification in 2002.

Jones said the city will be able to complete a project at Pan Am this year by demolishing the buildings and installing a soil cap.

The zoning change to the entire city block includes six properties: 8 Frontage Road, 49 Spring St., 83 Bleecker St., 40 Church St., 30 Church St. and 52 Church St.

A city resident wants to turn a building on Spring Street into a primary residence, but it is zoned for manufacturing.

The county and city planning boards were neutral on both of the zoning changes.
