Common Council Special Meeting – September 2, 2020
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that pursuant to Section 2.04 of the City Charter, the Common Council of the City of Poughkeepsie will hold a Special Meeting on Wednesday, September 2, 2020 at 6:30 p.m., and will be held via videoconferencing, (as permitted by the NYS Open Meetings Law).
COMMON COUNCIL CHAIR SALEM DECLARES TWO SPECIAL MEETINGS TO HEAR AN APPEAL FROM AIA TINKELMAN ARCHITECTURE ON THE DECISION OF THE HISTORIC DISTRICT AND LANDMARK PRESERVATION COMMISSION DENIAL OF CERTIFICATE OF APPROPRIATENESS FOR 36 NORTH CLOVER STREET.
The Common Council is in receipt of a notice of appeal from a decision of the Historic District and Landmark Preservation Commission (HDLPC) dated December 12, 2019. Pursuant to 19-4.5(13) of the Code of Ordinances of the City of Poughkeepsie (the “Code”) any person aggrieved by a decision of the HDLPC with regard to a certificate of appropriateness, may within 30 days of the decision, appeal to the Common Council for review of the Commission’s decision. This section further states the review that shall be conducted based on the same record that was before the HDLPC, using the same criteria.
The Common Council will hear this appeal at two special meetings called for the sole purpose of either upholding the decision of the HDLPC to deny the applicant a Certificate of Appropriateness or overturn the decision of the HDLPC.
This session will be the first meeting; and will be an opportunity for the Common Council to hear from representatives of the HDLPC and the Applicant regarding their respective opinions. After hearing from both sides, the Common Council will be provided an opportunity to ask questions. Again, these deliberations would be limited to the Record of Appeal.
Register in advance for this session:
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
