The operator of a local trash transfer station and waste hauling business has been given the green light to expand.
The Cortlandville Zoning and Planning Boards have approved Greg Leach’s plan for change at his custom trash operation on Route 13 near Lorings Crossing.
Leach is in the process of acquiring property from neighboring Suit-Kote to provide more storage for his roll off trash containers and to develop a second access road into his site.
Leach says his business is growing and he wants to be able to handle the growth. The second access road will allow trucks to enter and exit the transfer station from Lorings Crossing.
In a separate action, the zoning board of appeals rejected local builder Art Bells plan to build two new duplex homes on a piece of property at the intersection of Blue Creek Road and Cosmos Hill.
Bell was looking to build two homes on the over 2.5-acre site. Bell’s architect said the duplex homes would each be over 3 thousand square feet and were geared toward seniors who were looking to downsize but not live in a more urban setting.
Neighbors objected to allowing two homes on the site saying it was not consistent with current zoning and the surrounding neighborhood.
Bell said he plans to acquire more property there and move ahead with the proposal.
