Regarding a proposed Local Law in relation to
Entity Disclosure in Land Use Applications.
The Board of Trustees will hear at said time and place all persons in support of these local laws and

A LOCAL LAW IN RELATION TO ENTITY DISCLOSURE
IN LAND USE APPLICATIONS
BE IT ENACTED by the Board of Trustees of the Village of South Nyack that Chapter 110 of the Village Code be amended to add the following article:
Section 1. Legislative Findings and Intent.
A. The Village Board finds and determines that there is a critical and compelling need, in the public interest as set forth herein, to provide for full and fair disclosure of all privately held and/or non-publicly traded entities making land use applications before the Village to the extent possible to ensure that any and all potential conflicts of interest or other ethical concerns are properly disclosed and addressed by any and all affected parties.
B. The Village Board finds and declares that there is no existing law that preempts the adoption of this article so that the public interest in open and transparent government and land use applications can be promoted by enactment of this article to require all privately held and/or non-publicly traded entities making land use applications to supply information as to all limited and general members, shareholders, officers and directors or any other authorized persons having control over such privately held entities who apply for approval from the Village. Such disclosure will inform the public and the Village concerning the names of individuals with a vested interest in land use applications, will facilitate application review by the reviewing boards, will reveal actual or potential conflicts of interest, and enhance enforcement of the Code.**
**The full text of the proposed law is on file in
the Village Clerk’s office and may be reviewed by
interested persons during the regular business hours.
