Public meeting in Pavilion on draft revisions to county's Smart Growth Plan
As part of its 2019 triennial review, the Genesee County Department of Planning will hold a series of public meetings to present and gather comments on the draft revisions to the Smart Growth Plan. There will be two more meetings as follows:
- Tuesday, June 18, at 6:30 p.m. at Pavilion Town Hall, 1 Woodrow Drive, Pavilion
- Wednesday, June 19, at 6:30 p.m. at Genesee County Building 2 – Large Conference Room, 3837 W. Main Street Road, Batavia
On May 9, 2001 the Genesee County Legislature adopted the Smart Growth Plan. The Plan is a mitigating action of potential significant environmental impacts of the Genesee County Water Supply Project upon the viability of agriculture in Genesee County.
Smart Growth Development Areas throughout the county were designated based on their access to transportation, minimal conflict with County Agricultural Districts and State-regulated wetlands, feasibility of extending public water service, and the potential for extending public infrastructure to support development.
The Plan requires that it be reviewed every three years by the Legislature and that recommendations for its revision be made at that time.
During this review, the Town of Pavilion proposed changes to the Development Area Boundaries. Two substantive text changes are also being proposed as part of this review. The meeting will focus on the modifications being recommended to the County Legislature by the Planning Department.
