Town of Saratoga
Local Law No. 1 of the year 2019
A local law amending the Zoning Ordinance of the Town of Saratoga to add provisions regarding mixed uses.
Be it enacted by the Town Board of the
(Name of Legislative Body)
Town of Saratoga as follows:
Section 1 – Legislative Findings
The Town Board of the Town of Saratoga, in consultation with the Town Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals, has determined that in certain zoning districts of the Town where commercial use is permitted, there is a need to expand the scope of land use by allowing a mixture of commercial and non-commercial purposes on a single lot, so long as this can be accomplished through orderly development. The Board has determined that the current prohibition of multiple uses on a single lot is inconsistent with this objective. The Board also finds that allowing “mixed uses” (as defined), subject to Planning Board site review, furthers one of the “high priority” planning goals of the Town Comprehensive Plan to “incorporate flexible zoning regulations to individualize specific development to specific sites”.
Section 1 – Mixed Uses
Section 400-8.11 of the Saratoga Town Code is amended to read as follows:
400-8.11. Mixed Uses
Section 2 – Effective Date
This local law shall take effect immediately.
