8:00 P.M.

Public Hearing

 

To consider the request from Nextel Partners for a Special Use Permit which should allow them to construct a Telecommunications Tower at 8174 N. Main Street, Eden.

 

 

            Supervisor Nellis stated that an application from Nextel Partners, Inc. was received for a Tower Special Use Permit which would allow the construction of a 195’ wireless communication facility with a 10’ x 10’ equipment building at its base, located on a 400’ x 400’ parcel at the rear of 8174 N. Main Street, approximately 1400’ west of North Main Street on a parcel owned by resident Anne Weidner.  The facility will be used to provide Nextel Wireless service to residents and the traveling public in and around the Town of Eden.

            Gerald Brophy, a Nextel representative was present and made a brief presentation with handouts that were given to Town Board members.  Copies of handouts are on file in the Town Clerk’s office.  Mr. Brophy went on to explain why Nextel Wireless chose the location which would be unmanned, surrounded by a fence and would not be lighted unless required by the FAA or the Town of Eden.  Mr. Brophy also explained that there is a gap (blank area) that falls right in the hamlet of Eden and this tower would fill the gap.

            The following residents asked questions and stated their concerns:

 

C.William Carpenter of 3780 Yochum Road

Gerald Vice of 2951 Shadagee Road

Lawrence Clerc of 8172 N. Main Street

Frank Mantione of 2722 Kulp Road

Wilbert Smutz of 3094 East Church Street

Joseph Klug of 7700 Bley Road

John Bishof of 2840 Paxon Road

            Questions asked were about whether there was any hazardous material that would be used at the site or as the tower transmitted.  Mr. Brophy stated that as far as his company knew there were no health hazards.  A part of the tower ordinance is that the accumulative of radiations is monitored to ensure the safety of the tower.  Mr. Brophy also explained that the FCC mandates all equipment used and every two years testing would be done.  Also discussed was the expected life of the tower, which Mr. Brophy explained would be a 30-year lease and if the tower was not used in a twelve-month period the tower would be removed at the expense of Nextel.

            Also asked was whether there would be any interference with televisions or radios.  Mr. Brophy explained that they have not experienced any interference with other towers that they have constructed in the surrounding communities. 

            Concerns were also raised about the visibility of the tower.  Mr. Brophy provided in the handouts a few pictures taken of the proposed site from various angles around town.  Mr. Brophy stated that about two miles out the visual effect was small.  There are trees that surround the location and minimize the visibility of the tower.

            Also discussed was whether any more money be brought into the town by constructing the tower.  Mr. Brophy explained that the site has the capability to co-locate four companies on the tower and at this time Mr. Brophy is unaware of any other interests in this tower. 

            Concerns were also expressed about the affect of property value to the residents near the site.  Mr. Brophy stated that there would be no impact on the property values for their research has showed that across the country property values of those near the tower did not decrease.  Supervisor Nellis asked Mr. Brophy to send the Town Board a copy of research done on property values so the Town Board can make it available for anyone interested in this issue.  Mr. Brophy said he would forward this information to the Town Board.

            After concerns and questions were completed, Supervisor Nellis stated that if residents had any other information, questions or concerns to express to the Town Board or the Eden Planning Board to consider doing so by writing to the Town Board or the Eden Planning Board.

To consider Proposed Local Law No. 6-2001 to be known as the Town of Eden Business Incentive Real Property Tax Law

 

 

 

            Councilman Krycia explained that the law has to do with a “real property tax incentive for commercial businesses” with improvements to real property that must exceed $10,000.00.  The results of an increase in assessment from such improvements are subject to the exemption.  The law is similar to Real Property Tax Law, Section 485-b with exemption from taxation available only to conforming uses in the specified zoning districts covered in the law, they are “Office Business, Local Business, General Business, Planned Industrial and General Industrial.  There is an accelerated tax abatement schedule available that requires that minimum improvements of up to $50,000.00 be done.  William Trask, Town Attorney stated that law would be redrafted to reflect the $50,000.00 requirements.  Mr. Trask also read the following eligibility requirements; “By state law property must be use primarily for buying, selling, storing or developing goods or services for the manufacturer assembly of goods for processing raw materials or for hotel or motel purposes but not for any type other dwelling accommodations for residents or transients.”

To Consider Proposed Local Law No. 7-2001,

Amendments to the Town’s Standard Schedule of Fees

 

 

            Supervisor Nellis stated that the Town had a Moratorium on Ponds to improve the law regarding ponds and from that a need to set a fee for services rendered which the Eden Planning Board recommended.  The two areas affected are “Residential” for a site plan review by the Eden Planning Board and “Subdivision Fees” the amounts would be $150.00.             

            Councilwoman Pew asked if the “Subdivision Fees” are for minor subdivisions. Scott Henry, Zoning Code Enforcement officer explained that it is generally minor subdivisions because the review process created and the review costs have exceeded the $25.00 amount.  William Trask, Town Attorney further explained that this refers to minor subdivisions, which are considered property splits that are not referred to the Planning Board but are processed by the Town Engineer, the Building Inspector and the Planning Board chairman.  These fees are just limited to those types of reviews.  It was also discussed that the fees would not exceed the $150.00 for the “Subdivision Fees” it would be credited towards an amount that may be owed for a referral to the Planning Board.

It was also discussed that these fees are for the services rendered to cover the expense to review the applications.

            After the brief discussion, Mr. Trask suggested that Local Law No. 7-2001 be table in order to review the bills that the town receives regarding the services rendered for the application process.
