Each week the State of New York publishes the NYS Register which contains a record of active regulatory changes, Executive Orders, notice to bidders and notices of public hearings, including variances from the provisions of the Uniform Code and the Multiple Residence Law.
These notices can be viewed online by clicking the following link, NYS Register link. or you can check with the Town/Village clerk for a hard copy. It is important to see what challenges other code officials have in obtaining voluntary compliance and the challenges to bring older properties into compliance. Many of the requests will be presented before the Regional Boards of Review while others will be reviewed as administrative variances and granted without a public hearing.
We realize that taking a part of a day to attend a hearing may be a challenge, but we encourage you to take the time, sit in the hearing room and listen to the process and dialog as it will provide you valuable insight that you can share with one of your residents should they feel the need to request a variance.
