• The Marilla Town Board at its work session last week went over a State Environmental Quality Review for a proposed flag lot on Eastwood Road owned by Wayne House. He has a home he currently lives in on the property but wants the land his house sits on to be rezoned a flag lot. This could allow him to sell off a 600-foot by 300-foot frontage which is enough for three houses. A change to a flag lot designation is considered a rezoning.

The Board went over a similar review for Leon Berner who wishes to rezone a 25-acre plot at Two Rod and Clinton St. to a B zoning. Some of the land is wetlands, and the Board wants more information from Berner regarding what kind of business he is considering for the site.

House’s and Berner’s requests have been approved by the Marilla Planning Board. A public hearing will be held at 7:30 p.m. August 8 Town Board meeting at the town hall, 1840 Two Rod Rd. for Leon Berner’s request.

The Town is planning to put in a paved half mile trail around the park.

Refreshments will be served. All residents are welcome and are urged to bring a lawn chair.
