CRAWFORD TOWN BOARD

NOTICE OF ADOPTION OF LOCAL LAW

SUBJECT TO PERMISSIVE REFERENDUM

            NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Town Board of the Town of Crawford, at a special meeting held on July 27, 2021, after issuance of a SEQR Negative Declaration for this Unlisted action, duly adopted a local law, subject to permissive referendum, titled “Opt-Out of Allowing Cannabis Dispensaries and On-Site Cannabis Consumption Establishments,” which local law opts-out the Town of Crawford from the state statute authorizing towns to allow the licensing and establishing of cannabis retail dispensaries and cannabis on-site consumption establishments within the Town, and thus prohibit such establishments in the Town of Crawford. 

Dated: July 28, 2021                          

                                                                        BY ORDER OF THE TOWN BOARD OF

                                                                        THE TOWN OF CRAWFORD

                                                                        JESSICA KEMPTER

                                                                        TOWN CLERK

Coterminous Town/Village Petition for Consolidation

The Supervisor and Town Board support the Coterminous Town/Village petition for Consolidation. The attached question and answer sheet should answer most questions. This petition allows the Town to put this up for a vote by the residents in the Spring of 2022. If this is passed by the voters this consolidation would protect our current zoning and eliminate the possibility of new entities being formed within the Town’s borders. In a state as costly to live in as New York this should help keep the taxes more stable than what they would be if new entities are formed. Protect your values, including open space and strict zoning that were outlined in the Town of Crawford master plan and sign a petition for a vote on this consolidation. Should you have any further questions reach out to the Town Supervisor, Town Clerk or any Town Board member and we would be happy to answer them.

Supervisor Charles E. Carnes
