City zoning board meeting rescheduled

The City of Cortland Zoning Board of Appeals meeting scheduled for this evening has been postponed and rescheduled for Monday, April 25 at 5:30 p.m. on the third floor of city hall on Court Street.

According to city zoning officer Bob Rhea, the postponement of tonight’s meeting was “due to the lack of a quorum,” noting at least five board members have to be present for the meeting.

The meeting rescheduled for April 25 will serve as a special public hearing for Byrne Dairy’s proposed 4,232-square-feet store on the corner of Port Watson and River Streets.

Byrne Dairy is looking for approval of area variances to rezone a small property line from residential to general business zoning. The city’s zoning board voted against the request in December, and tabled its vote following a re-hearing in February.

Since then, Byrne Dairy officials haven’t had an opportunity to re-pitch its request. This is due to the city zoning board’s canceled meeting on March 14, and now the rescheduling of this month’s meeting.
