Local Law No. 1 of 2022, being a redesignation of proposed Local Law No. 4 of 2021, but identical in substance, is entitled: “AMEND THE ZONING CODE §195-62 RURAL PRESERVATION OVERLAY DISTRICT, AND ASSOCIATED DEFINITIONS AND LISTINGS IN THE TABLE OF GENERAL USE REQUIREMENTS, TO ALLOW THE CONVERSION OF THE APPROVED STONEHEDGE SUBDIVISION, APPROVED WITH 11 NEW SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES, ALTERNATELY TO CONSTRUCT 22 NEW DUPLEX RESIDENCES,” thus amending Chapters 195 of the Village Code, as more particularly set forth in said Local Law, but summarized as follows.

The Stonehedge Subdivision was approved by the Planning Board on March 12, 2019, with 12 lots, one containing the preserved historic Minetto farmstead and 11 lots for new single-family residences.  The owner of the Stonehedge Subdivision petitioned the Village Board on or about March 17, 2021, requesting that the Village of Montebello Zoning Code be amended to allow the conversion of the approved Stonehedge subdivision, approved with 11 new single-family homes, alternately to construct 22 new duplex residences, while still preserving the Minetto farmstead.  The Village Board, wishing to provide an opportunity for this alternative housing type, has introduced a local law to accomplish the goal of allowing the substitution of duplex houses in the Rural Preservation Overlay, while creating a sensitive design within the objectives of the overlay, maintaining the Spook Rock Road historic and scenic road corridor. and preserving the Minetto farmstead.  A new plan set for Stonehedge Heights Subdivision has been submitted with three sheets, dated June 17, 2021.

All interested parties are invited to attend via ZOOM.  The proposed law and subdivision plan set and record to date regarding the continued public hearing, will be available for inspection and review at the Village Office during normal working hours, Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm as well as on the Village of Montebello website
