The March 10th hearing of Case #823-15SP by the Zoning Board of Appeals (Ref. published Agenda March 10, 2015) has been postponed to the April 14th meeting by Chairman Russell Dean, for reason of weather conditions on the ground.  In order to visualize and properly evaluate the impact the application would have on the surrounding properties if approved, the Board members must have access to those areas including docks:  The accumulation of snow and ice renders access to the areas concerned too difficult and unsafe, to conduct their business.  As there is no other business to come before the Board, the meeting Tuesday, March 10th is cancelled.

Introduction

The Town of Huron is beautifully situated.  Bordered by Lake Ontario on the north, the Great Sodus Bay on the west and Port Bay on the east, Huron remains a picturesque, rural setting with rolling hills, orchards, farmlands and vineyards blended with vast wooded areas.  A hunting and fishing paradise, a place where agriculture, resort and industry come together in harmony with its natural beauty.
