The Town of Perrysburg's proposed zoning law and an Allegany contracting firm's office building and model home project were turned aside by the Cattaraugus County Planning Board last week.

Chief County Planner Terry Martin cited technical difficulties with both items, recommending the problems be corrected at the local level and referred again to the county board for action next month.

The first case involved Duggan and Duggan General Contractors' request for site plan approval to build an office building and a model home on separate but adjacent parcels on North Seventh Street at Buffalo Road.

Martin said the consolidated review was improper unless the proposal was presented as a planned unit development. Each should have its own site plan and be treated as a separate project.

The board then decided to ask the Perrysburg Town Board to rescind approval of its proposed zoning law because that step was taken prematurely and makes the legislation illegitimate. Instead, the town must wait until the county Planning Board votes.

The board recommended approving:

A special use permit and site plan for a proposed expansion of the Olean Medical Group parking lot near a helicopter landing pad, with no significant environmental impact, at 653-R Main St., Olean.

A special use permit, variance and site plan for an 8,000-square-foot addition to the front of the Rehabilitation Center on 1439 Buffalo St., Olean. Win Sum Ski Corp.'s special use permit and site plan for a commercial snow tubing facility on eight acres of leased property near a rail crossing, a future Route 219 interchange and the intersection of Bryant Hill Road and Route 242 in the Town of Ellicottville.

That project has gained support as part of a $4.6 million ski area upgrade, backed by revenue bonds to be issued by Cattaraugus County Industrial Development Agency. The town's Planning Board has raised some noise, traffic and lighting issues and scheduled the project for a public hearing at 7:30 p.m. June 23.

A special use permit and site plan review for several possible commercial uses of a 10,050-square-foot commercial building at 7129 Route 219 South, Ellicottville, and located in a high density recreation commercial zone.
