*******NOTICES & EVENTS*******


Notice is hereby given that a public hearing is scheduled before the Sheldon Zoning Board of Appeals on Thursday, May 8, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. at the Sheldon Town Hall, 1380 Centerline Rd., Strykersville, NY 14145 to hear the request of Roger Almeter, 2690 North Sheldon Rd., Strykersville, NY 14145.  Applicant has applied for two variances to erect two residential wind turbines on lot no. 67-1-35.1.  Variance number one is requested because the height of the proposed turbines is 172 feet which does not comply with current Town Local Law #2-2011 that limits the height of residential wind turbines to 120 feet.   Variance number two is requested because applicant seeks to place two residential wind turbines on one parcel which conflicts with Local Law #2-2011 that limits the number of turbines to one per parcel.  At such time all persons for or against the issuance of this Variance will be heard either in person, by agent or attorney.

By order of the Zoning Board of Appeals

Carol Zittel
