Mount View buyer granted variance


Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — On Tuesday, the zoning board approved the variance for Mount View.

• Zoning board members also approved a variance for Yahoo’s planned expansion in the Town Industrial Development Agency Park.

The Internet company needed a variance for the height of the administrative center, one of three buildings coming in the expansion, as well as a maintenance building that does not meet the required 50-foot front set back requirement. The height of the center would be 64 feet, which exceeds the allowed 50-foot height limit. 

There will be a public hearing concerning a proposed IDA tax break for Yahoo at 9 a.m. Thursday at the town hall on Dysinger Road. The company is planning a $168 million, 320,000-square-foot expansion which would lead to 115 additional jobs.
