Richfield Board Ponders

Disputed Plan’s Future

Palevsky

RICHFIELD SPRINGS – Oneonta attorney David Merzig has determined the Town of Richfield’s new – and disputed – zoning code might not survive a court challenge.

And the town board plans to meet at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 17, with new Town Attorney Peter Hobaica to determine whether and how to set it aside and perhaps start anew, said newly elected Town Supervisor Nick Palevsky.

The plan, which envisioned the town as mainly agricultural and residential, led to the election of Palevsky and two allies, Fred Eckler and Ed Bello Jr., last Nov. 5.
