Decoding Village Agendas – March 14, 2022
Work Session of the Village Board
1. Municipal Bonding Presentation from Beth Ferguson of Fiscal Advisors.
Ms. Ferguson will go over the basic of municipal bonding.
2. Further discussion regarding the Upper Village Traffic Study and the Dummy Light intersection. In late 2019, the Village discussed the results of a traffic study by Provident Design that identified 4 possible designs for the area of the Dummy Light in the Upper Village. The design alternatives ranged from $10,000 to $750,000. The Board did not reach any decisions at that time. The Bicycle Pedestrian Committee has asked that the discussion be taken up again and a solution for the intersection be agreed upon and implemented.
3. Review of potential Gouveia Park uses under New York State Parkland Alienation Clause. The Village Attorney will advise the Board on how the Parkland Alienation law affects future uses at the Gouveia property.
4. Discussion regarding the zoning regulations on cannabis retail dispensaries in the Village. The Board will discuss possible amendments to the Zoning code, to address locations where cannabis retail dispensaries would be permitted. There are already limitations on distances from schools and religious institutions as well as being limited to commercial zones for smoke shops. In addition to adding cannabis, the Board will discussion whether expanded prohibitions are needed.
