                           MAP OF THE VILLAGE OF CAZENOVIA

       WHEREAS, in July of 2008, the Board of Trustees of the Village of Cazenovia adopted a new
Comprehensive Plan of the Village of Cazenovia, and

         WHEREAS, the Board of Trustees following extensive review of the new Comprehensive Plan,
enacted local laws 2009-1, 2009-5 and 2010-5 amending significant portions of the zoning code in order to
implement recommendations of the Comprehensive Plan, and

         WHEREAS, proposed legislation denominated Local Law No. 3 of the Year 2011 of the Village
of Cazenovia, entitled “A Local law to amend and re-enact Chapter 180 (Zoning Code) and Zoning Map of
the Code of the Village of Cazenovia”, which is intended to incorporate the aforementioned prior
amendments of Chapter 180, make additional text amendments, primarily with respect to the administration
of the Village Zoning Code, and to also re-format and reorganize the sections of the Zoning Code to make
it a more effective working document for Village officials and the public, has been duly introduced before
this Board, and

        WHEREAS, upon notice duly published, posted and served as required, a public hearing on the
adoption of proposed Local Law 2011-3 was opened and held on May 2, 2011 and continued over several
months by this Village Board, and

          WHEREAS, the public hearing has been, or hereby is closed, and

         WHEREAS, pursuant to a referral duly made pursuant to the provisions of Section 239-m of the
General Municipal Law, the Madison County Planning Agency has reviewed proposed Local Law 2011-3
and has recommended that the question of the adoption of this local law be returned to this Board of
Trustees for local determination, and

          WHEREAS, this Board has reviewed the full environmental assessment form and has considered
the likelihood of any potential adverse environmental impacts that might result from the adoption of Local
Law 2011-3.

          NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED AS FOLLOWS:

    1.        That the enactment of Local Law 2011-3 is a Type 1 action for purposes of the New York
              State Quality Review Act. There are no involved federal agencies, and there are no other
              involved agencies. The enactment of Local Law 2011-3 does not affect any lands located
              within New York State agricultural districts and does not involve the exercise of eminent
              domain or other public acquisition of land or the advance of public funds for any construction.

    2.        That the enactment of Local Law 2011-3 will not have any significant adverse effects upon
              the environment. A negative declaration pursuant to the New York State Environmental
              Quality Review Act shall be prepared and filed in accordance with SEQRA’S implementing
              regulations. The reasons supporting this determination are as follows:

              a.   the purpose of the amendments to the zoning code is to implement recommendations of
                   the recently adopted Comprehensive Plan;
              b.   the action consists solely of a legislative enactment designed and intended to minimize
                   future adverse environmental effects from inadequately planned land use and
                   development, specifically with respect to signs posted in public view for business and
                   other purposes; and
              c.   that no specific development projects are planned under, envisioned by or made more
                   likely as a consequence of the adoption of this local law.

    3.        This Board, after due deliberation, finds the amendment and re-enactment of the Village
              Zoning Code and Zoning Map contemplated by Local Law 2011-3 to be in accordance with
              the comprehensive plan for the Village of Cazenovia, and further finds that the adoption of
              Local Law 2011-3 will promote and protect the health, safety and general welfare of the
              Village and its residents.

    4.        That Local Law 2011-3 entitled “A Local law to amend and re-enact Chapter 180 (Zoning
              Code) and Zoning Map of the Code of the Village of Cazenovia”, is hereby adopted, to be
              effective immediately upon its filing with the Secretary of State, and that the Village Clerk be
              and hereby is directed to enter said Local Law in the minutes of this meeting and in the Local
              Law Book of the Village of Cazenovia, and to give due notice of the adoption of said Local
              Law to the public and to the Secretary of State.

<<<<<<<<<

The Board scheduled the September Board meeting for Thursday September 8, 2011 at 7:00 p.m.

<<<<<<<<

The Village Board had an introductory discussion of options to improve parking in the Historic Business
District. Trustee Peggy Van Arnam reported parking in the Historic Business District has been a problem
at least as far back as 1963 as that is how far back the records go and it has gotten worse. Some of the
reasons for this are some buildings have no parking at all for tenants or customers, most families that had
one car in 1963 have two cars now. Also, village children no longer walk to school. They are either
transported by their parents or drive themselves and park by the high school. The number of Cazenovia
College students with cars has increased and their commuter students are not allowed to park on campus.
Employees feel entitled to park in front of their workplace. There are a few parking lots that are privately
owned and owners don’t want them opened to the public. Trustee Van Arnam added that the Village has
made some small improvements such as adding handicap parking spaces, e have made parts of Sullivan St.,
Lincklaen St. and William St. all day parking. The Village has also made provisions for overnight parking
on the Riverside lot. Trustee Van Arnam reported that a parking committee was formed in the fall of 2009
to research options with representation from the merchants, Cazenovia College, the Village Board and the
Village Planning Board. Trustee Van Arnam added there is little the Village can do to improve parking
without money. Some sample solutions could be to purchase the Napa property or the Colligan property
and install a pay station for visitor parking. The Village should publicize the free parking on Riverside
Drive and install lights and a sidewalk which the Village is planning to do. Trustee Van Arnam felt the
most important thing the Village could do is to educate people and have them understand that parking is a
economical development necessity.

Mayor Wheeler agreed to speak to Tom Dixon at Oneida Savings Bank regarding the use of their parking
lot when the bank is closed.

Mayor Wheeler added that maybe a graduated penalty approach for tickets could be added. Mayor
Wheeler thought pay stations in part of the Historic Business District might be a good idea.

Trustee Tim Mahoney added he thought it would be very helpful to add signage for the Riverside Drive lot
after the sidewalk had been completed.

Trustee Dave Porter suggested the Village ask Windstream if the Village could use their parking lot on
Bennett Lane in the evenings.

Trustee Van Arnam added that maybe the churches would open up their parking lots if they had meters as
then they would get the income.

The Board will continue the parking discussion at the September meeting.

<<<<<<<<<

Mayor Wheeler provided the Village Board with a d raft” Village of Cazenovia Policy for Display of
Community-based signs on Public Property”. Mayor Wheeler asked Trustee Mahoney to put together
guidelines for placement of the signs on Lakeland fence.

Motion made by Mayor Kurt Wheeler and seconded by Trustee Amy Mann to pass the following
resolution:

RESOLUTION #19 - BE IT RESOLVED that the Village of Cazenovia through its governing body the
Board of Trustees, hereby adopts the parameters for the Village of Cazenovia Policy for Display of
Community-based signs on Public Property. (see below)

Village of Cazenovia Policy for Display of Community-based signs on Public Property

The Village of Cazenovia has traditionally allowed local non-profit groups to post signs on the Lakeland
Park fence to advertise community events. This practice is generally an asset to the community and the
many civic groups which serve it. In recent months, however, the Village has received increasing numbers
of sign display requests, many of them for extended periods of time. The use of the fence is an effective
means to remind the community of any event as it approaches. It should not be viewed as a long-term or
primary means of marketing.
The village’s goal is to promote worthy community-based, non-profit events while also preserving the
aesthetics of the village, protecting the structural integrity of the Lakeland fence and promoting equity so
that extended durations for some signs don’t undermine the marketing impact of others. In keeping with
this goal, the following guidelines apply:

    1) Approval for signs promoting public events for local civic groups that are 16 square feet or less
       and displayed for four days or less is delegated to the Village Clerk. Groups may call 655-3041 for
       approval at any time.

    2) Signs promoting public events for local civic groups that are greater than 16 square feet or that
       will be displayed for more than four days and up to ten days require board approval. Groups
       should contact the Village Clerk at 655-3041 to be added to the next monthly meeting agenda far
       enough in advance to allow the timely consideration of their sign request. An image or clear
       description conveying the content and scale of the sign will be required in advance of the meeting.

    3) Signs promoting public events by non-local groups or requests to display signs for greater than ten
       days require Board approval. Groups should be prepared to explain the circumstances which
       require this non-standard approval. Extended duration signs will generally only be approved for
       events which impact a significant portion of the community. Non-local group signs will only be
       approved if substantial local benefit can be demonstrated. Groups should contact the Village
       Clerk at 655-3041 to be added to the next monthly meeting agenda far enough in advance to allow
       the timely consideration of their sign request. An image or clear description conveying the content
       and scale of the sign and rationale for duration requested/local impact will be required in advance
       of the meeting.

The Village of Cazenovia reserves the right to disapprove or modify the terms of any sign request for
reasons it deems to be in the public interest.

Mayor Wheeler reported that the parking patterns and the drop off and pick up patterns will be changed
with the reconstruction of Emory Ave. In the past, people have pulled over onto the Green both to pick up
and drop children off at school. The place to pick up and drop off students will be on the north side of the
street in front of the residences which will be much safer. Pulling onto the Green will no longer be
permitted. The primary drop off area will be right before the bus circle and another one right in front of the
high school. On the other side of the street will be designated parking spots which will be all day parking.
There will be seven or eight parking spots. All pick up and drop offs of students will be on the north side
of the street which will be much safer for everyone. One other change will be after you get to the
crosswalk on Emory Ave. there will have two lanes, one lane turning right and one tuning left.
