The Planning Board may require as a condition of site plan approval that the applicant file a performance bond or letter of credit in such amount as the Planning Board determines to be in the public interest to ensure that proposed development will be built in compliance with accepted plans. The amount of any such bond must also be approved by the Town Board.
In all districts, uses are not permitted which violate applicable county, state and/or federal codes and regulations pertaining to environmental issues. The Planning Board, under its powers of site plan review and approval, shall decide whether uses meet these standards.
The provisions of this chapter shall not be interpreted to limit in any way those powers and duties of the Planning Board as set forth in Article 16 of the New York Town Law.
Where a public hearing is held to consider a proposed site plan, the Planning Board shall give notice of the public hearing to any adjacent municipality within 500 feet of the proposed development in accordance with § 239-nn of the General Municipal Law. The adjacent municipality may appear and be heard.
