Tyre trucking firm looks to subdivide property, public hearing set

The owners of a trucking company on a 15.3-acre parcel at 1599 Route 414 are seeking to subdivide the property into three pieces.

Chester and Lois Burkholder of Ovid have submitted plans to the town Planning Board. Planners will review the site plan review and subdivision request, and conduct a State Environmental Quality Review.

A public hearing on the proposal is at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 27 in the Tyre Municipal Building at 1695 Route 318.

The Burkholders want to subdivide the property in this way:

• An 8.3-acre parcel for construction of a new, single-family home.

• A 3.7-acre parcel for the Empty Pockets commercial trucking business now operating at the site.

• A 3.2-acre parcel for an existing residential home.

Empty Pockets, a trucking company the Burkholders formed in 2012 in Ovid, transports solid waste and garbage from transfer stations to the Seneca Meadows landfill on Route 414 in Seneca Falls. The company employs 12 drivers and two mechanics.

In addition to accepting public comment at the hearing, the Planning Board will accept written comments on the proposal. They should be sent to the Tyre Municipal Building, 1695 Route 318, Waterloo, NY 13165.
