The Town of Victor Planning Board ("the Planning Board") by vote of 3 to 2 taken on September 25, 2018 at a regularly scheduled Planning Board meeting denied the Revised Site Plan Application ("the Planning Board's Determination") and thereafter the Applicant filed an Article 78 proceeding ("the Proceeding") in Ontario County Supreme Court for the State of New York seeking to overturn the Planning Board's Determination and the Planning Board opposed the Proceeding and the relief sought by the Applicant, and following the Court's consideration of extensive submissions by the parties and oral argument, by decision issued by the Honorable Frederick G. Reed on January 22, 2019, the Court overturned the Planning Board's Determination finding it was arbitrary and capricious and without basis, and the Court further indicated it did not believe there was a basis to deny the Revised Site Plan Application in the absence of the Planning Board identifying grounds to re-open the New York State Environmental Review Act process ("SEQRA") and making a SEQRA determination contrary to what was previously issued by the Planning Board in this matter.
