If you’ve attended a Bethel Township planning board meeting in the last six months or so, you’ve seen first hand that Bethel (home of the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts) is in the bulls eye target for developers, and the Planning Board there is frankly overwhelmed. On Tuesday, the Sullivan County Democrat reported that the Bethel town board is considering a six month moratorium on new commercial development and any building proposals involving more than 5 lots. The moratorium is being considered to give the Bethel Planning Board some breathing room to catch up. Recently, the Planning Board has been reviewing as many as 20 projects per meeting. At this stage, the moratorium is just a proposal and has not been enacted.
