The town of New Scotland has set a public hearing for Aug. 31, 6:30 p.m. for a resolution to extend the moratorium on commercial buildings.
The extension will run until February 1, according to town officials.
The moratorium was initially enacted for six months, then subsequently extended two more times. This will be the third extension, totaling one year and six months.
It was initially put in place after Sphere Development LLC, a Cazenovia based company, expressed interested in placing a big-box retail store on the former Bender Melon Farm near the intersection of Route 85 and Route 85A.
