New Hartford PZC Passes 6-Month Moratorium on Outdoor Wood Burning Furnaces

Dec 9th, 2010 | By | Category: Featured Story, Pollution

NEW HARTFORD—It took two years for the Terras to get there, but on Wednesday evening their perseverance paid off: New Hartford’s Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously approved a six-month moratorium on new outdoor wood burning furnace permits to give it time to research and discuss how and if OWFs should be regulated.

With the public hearing closed, commission members discussed the moratorium proposal and agreed that six months is enough time to research other towns’ regulations. They also agreed that a moratorium should be put into effect as soon as possible to avoid the submission of new permit applications.
