PETITION TO AMEND ZONING ORDINANCE

TO: THE TOWN OF KNOX TOWN BOARD, PLANNING BOARD and ZONING BOARD of APPEALS

I, Kristen Reynders, a resident of the Town of Knox residing at 1039 Township Road, Altamont, New York petition to amend the zoning law as follows:

1. Article V Section 50 (A)(1)(a) dealing with home occupation. The law currently states “in any district nothing in this Ordinance shall prevent individuals from conducting their business, trade or profession in their home or residence provided no one other than the owner or tenant of the property is employed on the premises, that no other business person, trades person or professional shall be permitted to share, let or sublet space for any use;...”

We propose that this section be amended to state that “in any district nothing in this Ordinance shall prevent individuals from conducting their business, trade or profession in their home or residence provided that the owner or tenant of the property shall employ no more than two additional individuals on the premises, ...”

2. Article IV Section 45 - Business Uses - This section currently lists “Public Garage” as a non-permitted use in a residential district. We propose changing the “N” to a “C” which would designate a public garage as a “temporary and/or conditional use contingent on securing a Special Use Permit in each case from the Zoning Board of Appeals.

3. Amend Article III - Section 41(3) District Boundaries Business. The law currently states that there are no areas presently so designated. We would like this section to be amended to create a business/ mixed use district encompassing the property known as 1039 Township Road in the Town of Knox. A legal description of the business/mixed use district shall be determined by the Town.

The proposed changes listed above should be reviewed and considered individually and not as a whole.

    This is LONG over due. Time for growth in this town, rather than the continued slow death cause by long term incumbents!

    Leaders of the town of Knox need to think about what will benefit our town not about their own personal bias.
