Push for Resort Hotel Rezoning Favored in Liberty

Sullivan Catskills Visitors Association (SCVA) President and CEO, Roberta Byron-Lockwood, was one of the supporters of the local law aimed at altering two properties to be a part of the Resort Hotel (RH) zoning.

LIBERTY — A local law poised to switch two Grossinger properties from residential districts (R1) to Resort Hotel districts (RH) in the Town of Liberty received support from members of the public.

If approved, the proposal, Local Law #3 of 2024, is set to change Town Code Chapter 147 by “adding several parcels to the Resort Hotel (RH) Zoning District, as well as revise the definition of destination,” and removes certain uses from the principal permitted use column and special use column of the Schedule of District Uses for the Resort Hotel RH zoning district.”
Those who offered support for the proposed legislation included town residents Allen Werlau, who said that Liberty is “long overdue for healthy growth,” and Cora Edwards, who said she would like to see an increase in tax dollars from a growing hotel and tourism industry in the town.

Also speaking in favor of the local law was Sullivan County Partnership for Economic Development President and CEO, Marc Baez, and Sullivan Catskills Visitors Association (SCVA) President and CEO, Roberta Byron-Lockwood.

The Town Board accepted the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) parts two and three in the process of making that switch Monday night, making the town lead agency.
