Johnstown planning board conducts reviews

JOHNSTOWN —The Fulton County Planning Board conducted reviews of projects in three municipalities last week at the Fort Johnstown Annex.

County Senior Planner Sean Geraghty said Friday that the board stayed neutral Dec. 18 on a site plan for storage units currently going through the Johnstown City Planning Board.

“They saw no regional implications,” said Geraghty.

Johnstown city planners will review the project at 4 p.m. Jan. 8 at City Hall. That board recently set a public hearing and declared itself lead environmental agency for a planned expansion project at City Line Storage. The expansion project at 580 N. Perry St. is being done by Marbeck City Line, LLC.

The City Line Storage parcel totals 2.12 acres and the amount disturbed will be about 25 percent. There are three proposed units that will be erected at the site. Snyder Avenue will be used for access to the site. One new key pad-activated movable gate will be installed, as well as a chain-link fence around the entire perimeter.

In other business Tuesday, Geraghty said the board “stayed out” of a proposal going through the town of Caroga. The town’s Zoning Board of Appeals is reviewing a use variance for an accessory structure along Lane Road.

Geraghty said another review by county planning officials centered on a 2018 Zoning Law amendment going through the Perth Town Board. He said the county board “recommended adopting the amendment” involving the town’s Business Technology Zone.
