The Planning Board meeting that was to take place on February 9 had to be canceled because we were in the middle of Winter Storm Niko. A makeup meeting has been scheduled for this Thursday, February 23.
The public hearings that were to take place on February 9--on the proposals for 886 Columbia Street, 6-12 Hudson Avenue, and 34 Allen Street--will not happen until the Planning Board's regular monthly meeting on March 9. This Thursday, the board will hear the three new proposals that were on the February 9 agenda: to convert 124 North Second Street into a manufacturing site for sauerkraut and other lacto-fermented vegetables; to use the former church building at 426-428 State Street for public events and photo shoots; to reduce the number of parking spaces and erect an 8-foot fence at 78-80 Green Street. The proposal that typically attracts a crowd to Planning Board meetings, the Colarusso haul road will likely not be discussed. That project may, however, be on the agenda for the Greenport Planning Board meeting, which takes place on Tuesday, February 28, but that agenda is not available on the Town of Greenport website.
