NY Appellate Court Upholds Zoning Ordinance Interpretation that an “Educational Center” May Include Housing and Dining Facilities

A New York Appellate Court reiterated that an interpretation by a zoning board of appeals of its own zoning ordinance is entitled to great deference. The Court found that “pursuant to the plain meaning of the language of …the Zoning Law of the Town of North East, it is permissible for an ‘educational center’ to include housing and dining facilities.”
