Community, it is a term that many of us who live in the Town of Newburgh define as a place of shared location, government and common interests for the safety and security of our families, friends and homes.
The Town of Newburgh Board has a clear path to protecting our Town now and for future generations by simply voting on and implementing a specific "Adult Use Zone". This type of zoning was part of the master plan approved in 2006 costing the taxpayers over $250K to complete, and the time is now to execute that part of the plan.
We call upon Town Supervisor Wayne Booth (email)
, Deputy Supervisor Gil Piaquadio (email)
, Councilman George Woolsey (email)
, Councilwoman Betty Greene (email)
and Councilman Ernest Bello (email)
to immediately issue a moratorium on all permits, approvals and building for new and existing adult use businesses. A moratorium will give them the necessary time to implement an "Adult Use Zone" properly and effectively.
