Hearing Looks At Route 12B Rezoning For Kirkland

The Town of Kirkland Board meeting held a public hearing at last week’s meeting about the rezoning on Route 12B.

Voting on the Route 12B Overlay District happens at the board’s Sept. 26 meeting. Because of the non-conforming nature of the businesses in the area it is considered a light-commercial district.

“We wanted to make sure of three things,” Town Supervisor Bob Meelan said. “It’s not going to hurt any properties, we keep it the way it is, and it stays the same aesthetically.”
