NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE, that the Nassau Village Board of Trustees shall hold a public hearing on March 9, 2022 at 7:15 p.m., at the Village Hall, 40 Malden Street, Nassau, New York to receive comments from the public about a proposed local law as follows:
Proposed Local Law No. 1 of the year 2022, a local law amending Section 120-36(A) of the Zoning Law of the Village of Nassau, to include a cannabis dispensary among the defined uses for which a special permit is required in the General Business District.
Article 8 of the Nassau Village Zoning Law sets forth land use rules and regulations for the General Business District Zone. That local law sets forth permitted principal uses (Section 120-34); permitted accessory uses (Section 120-35) and special permit uses (Section 120-36). Section 120-36 sets forth a specific list of land uses for which a special permit must be obtained from the Planning Board. That list currently includes bars and taverns, automobile sales areas, light industrial facilities, and other uses. Under the new Cannabis Law enacted by the State of New York in 2021, it is possible that a cannabis dispensary could be opened within the Village borders. The proposed local law would add cannabis dispensary to the list of uses requiring a special permit, thus providing for a review of the application for the establishment of any such business within the Village by the Village Planning Board.
A copy of the local law may be inspected at the Office of the Village Clerk during regular business hours. A copy of the proposed local law is also available on the Village’s website at: www.VillageofNassau.org
Written comments may be submitted to the Village Board by mail to the Village Board, Nassau Village Hall, 40 Malden Street, P. O. Box 452, Nassau, New York 12123 at any time prior to the hearing.
By order of the Nassau Village Board of Trustees
Nassau Village Clerk
Dated: February 22, 2022
