Say No To Cazenovia's Annexation Request
The Town of Cazenovia completed its Comprehensive Plan for the Route 20 Corridor, and intended it to last 2-3 decades.
Currently, the Boards of both the Town and Village are faced with annexation requests for major development within the same Route 20 Corridor, considered part of Cazenovia's green belt.
Similar to a petition of ten years ago signed by some 1,000 Cazenovians, we, the undersigned residents of the Village and/or Town of Cazenovia, New York, have added our names to this petition because we wish to go on record as agreeing to the following:
1) We place great value in the unique features of this community, including its rural charm, its historic Albany Street business district, its environmental quality, and its beautiful and essential green belt.
2) We seek a sensible approach to commercial and residential development that is in the public interest, is consistent with the community’s needs, does not jeopardize our environment, and is in keeping with our Town's Comprehensive Plan.
3) We urge members of the Town and Village Boards to vote NO to all current and future annexation requests, including the Aldi's-Muraco request, because it does not meet, but rather violates the existing 2008 Town Comprehensive Plan.
