TAGHKANIC—The town Zoning Board of Appeals issued a determination this week that Alan Wilzig’s motorcycle track is not a racetrack but a recreational course and therefore is acceptable under town zoning regulations. The decision clears the way for Mr. Wilzig to pave the surface of his track unless opponents of his plans convince a court to prevent that from happening.
The ZBA voted on the decision Tuesday, May 19, with James Romaine, Tom Kiely and Bob Rochler voting in the affirmative. Moisha Blechman cast the lone negative vote.
Several board members seemed surprised and favorably influenced by the beauty of Mr. Wilzig’s compound and by Mr. Wilzig’s assurances that the track will not be used for racing.
