Fayette Town Board finds no environmental impact from land-use changes

  • / Updated:
  • Staff Report 

The Fayette Town Board has concluded that proposed adjustments to local land-use regulations will not negatively impact the environment. This decision, announced through a negative declaration submitted to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Region 8 in Avon, follows a thorough review process led by the Town Board as the lead agency.


The proposed regulatory changes encompass various sectors including bed-and-breakfasts, vacation rentals, campgrounds, and major solar-collection systems. They also extend to dock setback requirements in the Lakeshore and Canal District, limitations on dock length, the maximum capacity for properties with private septic systems, and the specifications for convenience stores in the Hamlet District.

For those seeking further information or wishing to discuss the proposed changes, Town Supervisor Jeff Trout is available for contact. His office has encouraged residents and stakeholders to reach out with any inquiries or concerns regarding the modifications.
