Saratoga planning commission sets nuisance meeting


The Saratoga Planning Commission met Tuesday for its regular monthly meeting and enforcement of town nuisance ordinances took center stage.

At the meeting, Dan Ferrin, the town’s zoning officer, told planning commission members that he has received complaints from local residents about lack of enforcement of nuisance ordinances intended to prevent health and safety as well as aesthetic issues. The board set a workshop to further discuss the issue.

The town’s master plan, which had been developed by the commission over months, identified nuisance complaints and the enforcement of anti-nuisance ordinances as a top issue facing the town.

The workshop was scheduled to allow members to discuss how to begin enforcement of the ordinances in a fair and orderly manner, with Ferrin telling commission members it would be a difficult task to begin enforcement after so many years of no enforcement at all.

Residents, he said, would need time to come into compliance with the ordinances, and it would be important to be consistent with enforcement efforts, he said.

The workshop will be held 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 21, at Saratoga Town Hall. The meeting will be open to the public. The next regularly scheduled meeting of the Saratoga Planning commission will be 5:30 p.m., July 11 at Saratoga Town Hall.
