Notice of Public Hearing Local Law for February 17, 2021


 PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that a Public Hearing will be held on Wednesday February 17, 2021, beginning at 7:30 p.m. or as soon thereafter as the matter can be heard via ZOOM to consider adopting Local Law No. 1 of 2021 entitled: “AMENDING CHAPTER 195, ZONING, AND CHAPTER 104, HOTELS, INNS AND BOARDINGHOUSES, TO REGULATE SHORT TERM RENTALS OF RESIDENTIAL DWELLINGS”, thus amending Chapters 195 and 104 of the Village Code, as more particularly set forth in said Local Law, but summarized as follows.

The Comprehensive Plan of the Village of Montebello identifies a critical and compelling need to regulate short-term rental use of residential dwellings located in the Village of Montebello.  Most dwellings in the Village are not subject to the New York State Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code (Uniform Code) provisions for protecting transient occupants.  Therefore, the Village Board finds and determines that the public health, safety and welfare of current and future Village residents will be adversely affected by the unregulated short-term rental of all or a portion of residential dwellings.  The Board further finds and determines that conditions arising from the short-term rental of dwelling units that may be substandard or in violation of the Uniform Code, New York State Multiple Residence Law and applicable Village of Montebello Codes, pose hazards to life, limb and property of residents of the Village, exacerbate blight, contribute to noise and other nuisance conditions related to crowding, contribute to excessive vehicle traffic and parking problems and overburden municipal services. This Local Law implements Comprehensive Plan recommendations by defining and prohibiting short term rental of dwelling units or portions thereof for 29 nights or less.  Roomers, non-transient occupants of rooming units for a period of 30 or more days, are permitted.

All interested parties are invited to attend.  The proposed law 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
