Board recommends zoning change

GLOVERSVILLE – The Planning Board recommended a zoning change for two properties – again.

Mario Albanese would like to change the zoning to commercial for two of his properties along South Kingsboro Avenue – just north of the properties that recently had their zoning changed. The two vacant pieces of property are on the same side of South Kingsboro Avenue, situated in the wooded areas on each side of a Lexington Center property.

At the January Common Council meeting, city Department of Public Works Director Kevin Jones said to save time, he requested the city Planning Board provide a recommendation. Prior to the meeting, the board recommended the council OK the zoning changes for the two properties.

However, city Attorney Anthony Casale said approval would have to be resubmitted to the board because it wasn’t recommended by the council.

Casale said once he has the response from the board, a public hearing on the zoning change will be held and the change could be approved at the council’s meetings in February.
