ZEPHINIA COMSTOCK/ENDERS FARMHOUSE (c. 1825) STATUS OF DEMOLITION REQUEST
Last summer the Town of Cazenovia Planning Board received a demolition application from New Venture Assets LLC, owners of the Zephinia Comstock House, built c. 1825, also known as the Enders House, 2363 Route 20 East. State law requires environmental review of certain land use actions, and the Planning Board ordered the applicant to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) based on the potential impact of the proposed demolition (the building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places). The Board has received comments on the draft EIS, and requested additional information from New Venture. This information was supplied in time for the Thursday, April 5 Planning Board meeting. From April 5 there is a 10 day period for additional written comment. There will not be another public hearing. The Board expects to vote on the demolition request at its May 3 meeting. For the complete background on this see CPF’s Fall 2011 Upland Journal on the website or call the office, 877-1742, for a hard copy. If you wish to view the EIS it is available at the town office and at the Town of Cazenovia website (direct link to document here).
