Providing a scope report is not a requirement for SEQR approval, but is a way to provide further information and discussion on a proposed project. The scoping process can be initiated by either the municipal board or the applicant, in this case it was the applicant’s idea, Molnar said.
Tucker added that the scoping meeting would be open to the public, though there would not be a time for public comment. He thanked the concerned residents in attendance for coming and said that the board always welcomes written comments about matters such as VSM.
The Victory Campus is a proposed athletic and healthcare facility to be built on Route 20 in the town of Skaneateles to the west of the village. Facing inquiries from the planning board and increased public criticism, VSM hired Gilberti, Stinziano, Heintz and Smith law firm of Syracuse in January to assist with the application and permitting process.
