Planning for the Future of Tyre

Cornell University has partnered with the Town of Tyre to evaluate current trends in managing growth and development at a major highway interchange in a rural area and a tourism gateway.  At this first forum, students in a City and Regional Planning course will present their inventory and analysis of current resources in Tyre (zoning law, comprehensive plan, local and regional transportation trends, etc.) and how the town can achieve sustainable community development.  They are also seeking input from the community about these findings.  The forum is open to all interested persons.


 Vacancy on Tyre Zoning Board of Appeals

The Town of Tyre Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) has one vacancy and seeks a citizen of Tyre to fill that vacancy.  The Zoning Board of Appeals has the power to hear and decide appeals from decisions of those officials charged with the administration and enforcement of the local zoning law.  The primary function is to interpret the local zoning law and grant variances.  Members are required to undertake four hour of annual training.  The ZBA generally meets only when an appeal for a variance is requested.  Interested persons should contact the chairman of the Tyre ZBA.

Richard Damaske, ZBA Chairman
