TIME TO GET PICKED UP — Naab’s store and the Kendall gas station were the end of the line for the Seneca Street bus. Armor Road is on the right, and Chestnut Ridge Road is on the left. The bus would turn around here and head back into downtown Buffalo.

A 180-day moratorium suspending the granting of special exceptions in R-3 zones and its relative permits is in effect for the Village of Orchard Park. The Orchard Park Village Board of Trustees Monday amended its zoning ordinance to review applications in R-3 zones in light of new stresses put on those zones by interested commercial enterprises.

Commercial, business and industrial properties that get their taxes reduced through Real Property Tax Law 485-b may not do so if the Orchard Park Board of Education decides not to grant such decreases. The board has been looking at the process where abatements are granted and if such reductions actually benefit or hinder practices of the Orchard Park School District.

The Orchard Park Town Board tabled the elimination of planned shopping centers from the town’s I-1 special exception uses last week pending further review.

The Orchard Park Town Board went on record last week opposing Adelphia Cable’s imposition of franchise fees on top of franchise fees the town already pays for service.
