Planning Board Meeting
Case No. TB 21-04
Chapter 285 – Battery Energy Storage System Facilities –
Zoning Text [Local Law] Amendment (Referral from Town Board)
A continuation of a work session (April 21, 2021 and May 17, 2021) to consider a report and recommendation to the Town Board on a zoning text [Local Law] amendment referral related to Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) facilities. The local law would create a special permit and related processes for BESS facilities, as a newly defined use, applicable in various Zoning Districts of the Town, using a Tier-based system for differently scaled systems. The proposed amendments would also make modifications to clarify aspects of § 285-10A(4)(b) Public Utility Structures. The Town-initiated local law was prepared with guidance from a Town Board-appointed BESS Committee, and was referred on April 14, 2021.
