TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general municipal law, in relation to notice of certain municipal actions
PURPOSE: This bill would require county planning agencies or in the absence of a county planning agency, regional planning councils to give notice of any proposed action to any municipality within the county which is within five hundred feet of the property being affected.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1. - Amends Subdivision 2 of section 239-m of the general municipal law to require regional planning councils or county planning agencies to give notice to any municipality in the county that is within 500 feet of the proposed action.
Section 2. Is the effective date.
JUSTIFICATION: Under current law only residents within the same municipality are needed to be notified of certain actions. It is only fair to surrounding communities that they get the same kind of reporting notification to insure that they are made aware of changes to the area in which they reside. This legislation would require a formal notice to any municipality which is within the standard 500 feet of the proposed action. It is good planning practice to advise neighboring affected communities.
