Approval of the August 16, 2004 Minutes:

Fran Dellamano noted a couple corrections in the minutes. On Page 2, second from the last paragraph, the sentence that starts with "Where there is wet land------, should read "Where there is wet land in an Agricultural District, it has to show Agriculture." The next sentence "Part of the Flood Plan should be put in a Conservation District", should be deleted as it doesn't make sense. Judy Watson asked for a motion to approve the minutes as corrected. John Pritchard made the Motion, and Ken Kern seconded it. All ayes. Motion carried.

Comprehensive Plan:

Judy Watson brought large copies of the Town of Oswego Comprehensive Plan Proposed Land Use Map, as well as small copies for the members. Judy Watson and Fran Dellamano had met at a special meeting with Brian Frazier and Karen Noyes earlier in the month, and came down to a final plan. After discussion of the Plan, regarding districts and colors, namely:- Agricultural (light green); Conservation (darker green); Rural Transitional (white); Residential (yellow); Commercial (brown); and Industrial (gray); all members agreed with the Plan. Barry Pritchard stated this is an overview, that if there is to be zoning, we would have to refer to a Zoning Map. Fran stated that in Agricultural, property used for farming and silviculture should be signed up with the New York State Agricultural District.

Fran Dellamano made a Motion that we accept the Comprehensive Plan Land and Use Map. John Pritchard seconded the Motion. All ayes. Motion carried.

The subject of the Definitions for the map were brought to the floor. There were corrections made to two of the Definitions. Following is how the Definitions for the Proposed Land Use Map are to be defined:

Agricultural: Property used for farming and silviculture.

Conservation: Areas of known to be wetlands, or in 100 year flood plains.

Rural Transitional: Property used for human habitation, business and home based occupations.

Residential: Property used for non transient human habitation. Excludes mobile homes.

Commercial: Property used for the sale of goods and/or services.

Industrial: Property used for the production and fabrication of durable and non durable goods.

Fran Dellamano made a Motion that the Definitions be approved as corrected. Ken Kern seconded the Motion. All Ayes. Motion carried.

At this point, Judy Watson stamped the Comprehensive Plan Land Use Map.
