North Haven To Hold Hearings On Extending Laws on Deer, Dock Moratoriums


The North Haven Village Board will hold a pair of public hearings next month on two separate pieces of legislation, one to extend a deer fence law and the other to extend a moratorium on dock approvals.

The hearings will take place at a regularly scheduled board meeting on Tuesday, July 2, at 5 and 5:10 p.m., respectively, at Village Hall on Ferry Road. The proposed local laws are merely extensions of current code.

If approved, the deer fence law would extend for an additional four years—until June 1, 2017—current village regulations regarding the procedures for installing fences greater in height than would otherwise be allowed, so that they may exclude deer from an enclosed area.

The proposed extension of the temporary dock moratorium, meanwhile, would extend a 2011 law by an additional 90 days beginning on August 7, 2013, when it is due to expire, during which time no applications for docks could be processed or approved. The stated purpose of this moratorium extension is to enable the board to complete work on a local law regarding dock approvals.
