[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Red Hook 6-16-2016 by L.L. No. 2-2016. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Zoning — See Ch. 200.
The Village of Red Hook adopted Greenway Connections: Greenway Compact Program and Guides for Dutchess County Communities via resolution on May 6, 2002, which rendered the Village a participating community in the Greenway Compact. The Village now seeks to adopt Greenway Connections via local law to confirm its commitment as a participating community and to incorporate references to Greenway Connections into the Village's Zoning Law.
Pursuant to the provisions of § 44-0119 of the Environmental Conservation Law of the State of New York, the Village of Red Hook hereby adopts as a Village land use, development and design guideline to the extent applicable to the Village of Red Hook, the report entitled "Greenway Connections: Greenway Compact Program and Guides for Dutchess County Communities" including the guides hereafter listed (hereinafter referred to as Greenway Connections), confirming that the Village of Red Hook is participating community in the Greenway Compact.
In taking this action, the Village of Red Hook understands that proposals to amend Greenway Connections may from time to time be made by the Hudson River Valley Greenway Communities Council (hereinafter referred to as "Greenway Council") in response to requests from participating communities. Within 90 days of receipt of any such proposal from the Greenway Council, the Village Board of the Village of Red Hook shall determine by resolution whether to accept or to reject such proposed amendment. Any proposed amendment so accepted shall be considered an amendment of Greenway Connections as adopted by the Village of Red Hook. Any proposed amendment rejected by the Village Board will not be considered to be an amendment of Greenway Connections for the Village of Red Hook, and notice of such rejection shall promptly be provided to the Greenway Council.
It is the stated policy of the Village of Red Hook that, to the extent the Village amends its current, or enacts new, land use laws and regulations, such new or amended laws and regulations, wherever and whenever appropriate, should be designed to be consistent with Greenway Connections to the extent applicable to the Village of Red Hook.
