O&G did not show up at the Greenport Planning Board tonight, and they did not notify Planning Board Chair Don Alger of their intention to stay away. Those who waited through an hour of the Board reviewing subdivisions, signage, and Tractor Supply's plan to refill propane canisters on its premises were rewarded for their endurance when Planning Board counsel Carl Whitbeck explained the current state of things.
The Greenport Planning Board has sent a letter to O&G informing them that no further action will be taken on their application until they have submitted and have an application pending with the City of Hudson Planning Commission or they make it clear that they do not intend to make such an application. The letter gives O&G sixty days to comply, but it's not known when the letter was sent and when the clock started on the sixty-day deadline.
The next meeting of the Hudson Planning Commission is scheduled for Wednesday, November 10.
