GLOVERSVILLE - The Fulton County Planning Board voted Monday to stay neutral regarding the proposed Gloversville local law that would put a nine-month moratorium on the construction of multiple-family dwellings in the city.
City officials have said they are aiming to enact the moratorium because of vacancy rates in the existing multiple-family dwellings in the city.
The planning board officials also said that the city is reviewing the impact those buildings have on the city's infrastructure and the character of residential neighborhoods.
Councilman at Large James Robinson said city officials are reviewing the idea to control the housing in the city that will affect the taxpayers and to better the city of Gloversville.
A public hearing about the proposal will be held at 6 p.m. Sept. 25 at City Hall.
