[HISTORY: Adopted by the Village Board of the Village of Port Chester 6-11-1990 as L.L. No. 7-1990. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The rationale for creating this post is the desire of the Mayor and Board of Trustees to continue their practice of making use of the background and knowledge of Board members and extending that practice into the area of development. As the two major development projects in the village move steadily toward fruition and numerous other smaller projects are also in various stages of study and development, it is more than ever desirable that a member of the Board of Trustees with skills and experience be specifically designated to work with the Mayor to prescreen documents, reviews, proposals, applications and reports and to brief the Board prior to public hearings or at such other times as they deem it desirable. The coordinator will assume this responsibility at no cost to the village. The duties of Development Coordinator shall not reduce the powers and responsibilities of the Mayor and Board of Trustees.
The Board of Trustees hereby creates the post of the Board of Development Coordinator.
The duties of the Development Coordinator shall be as prescribed hereafter.
The Village Clerk shall, upon receipt, notify the Mayor and Development Coordinator of any application, petition or request to be referred to the Board relative to its authority pursuant to Article 15 of the General Municipal Law and Chapters 98 and 98A of the Village Code or the acquisition sale, lease or transfer of village property.
Upon request of the Mayor or Development Coordinator, the Village Clerk shall provide such application data as may be requested by either of them. The Mayor and Development Coordinator shall have a reasonable opportunity to report to the Board of Trustees regarding any matter herein provided for their review.
The Mayor and Development Coordinator shall act as liaison between the Board of Trustees and the Village Manager or his designee regarding implementation of Board policy concerning Article 15 of the General Municipal Law, Chapters 98 and 98A of the Village Code and village real property transactions.
The Mayor and Development Coordinator shall act as liaison for the Board of Trustees with the Planning Commission regarding implementation of Board policy concerning Chapters 98 and 98A of the Village Code.
No Board member shall attend any meeting with private individuals or groups to present village policy regarding planning and development without giving formal written notice to the Mayor and Development Coordinator.
The delegation of duties herein set forth shall not have any effect upon the powers and duties of the Village Manager of any other employee of the village nor shall such delegation, in any manner, abolish, transfer or curtail any power of any elected officer or the Board of Trustees itself.
