SIDEBAR: More CBE delay

 

Return to the main article, “Plant upgrade less expensive”

It will be several months before Council decides whether to fund the CBE infrastructure, according to Interim Manager Kent Bristol at Monday’s Council meeting.

The controversial local topic faced a delay at the Jan. 21 Council meeting, when Village Solicitor Chris Conard announced that a review of the CBE process showed that a necessary step, that of approval by Planning Commission, had been missed. At the time, Bristol said it was possible that the issue could be back on Council’s plate by March. However, at a meeting last week of various players in the CBE ­project, it was decided that the CBE zoning approved in the recent zoning code update is “not appropriate,” ­Bristol said, and that other zoning options should be considered.

“We concluded that step one is to rezone the property,” Bristol said, a process that involves the Village’s two planning consultants from Greene County, after which the CBE plan will go to the Planning Commission. He projected the process would take three to four months.

However, Council will make sure the CBE project will still allow time for a referendum in November, if citizens decide to move ahead with one, according to Council member Marianne MacQueen.
