Zoning change eyed by council

GLOVERSVILLE – City Department of Public Works Director Kevin Jones notified the Common Council on Tuesday the Fulton County Planning Board saw “no regional impact” from the proposed zoning change on South Kingsboro Avenue.

Therefore, city Attorney Anthony Casale said he will prepare the local law needed to change the zoning in that area for the next work session Jan. 14.

The city Planning Board previously recommended the council change the zoning on South Kingsboro Avenue. The council is considering the idea after eight residents on the road asked the city to change the zoning to entice other businesses to move to that area and make their properties more appealing to developers.

The zoning change would affect one side of South Kingsboro Avenue. Jones said the zoning change would affect eight houses at the bottom of South Kingsboro near the intersection with Route 30A, where the Burger King is being built.
