PUBLIC HEARING:

 

The Woodman, LLC Site Plan Amendment to change use from Solarium manufacturing to firewood processing/fuel dealer/ Property is located at 2453 Lucas Turnpike in the I-1 zoning district with a tax map number of 69.4-1-58.110. Update: Public Hearing to be continued.

Applicant Ted Whitehead was not present for the Public Hearing.

 

Discussion:

Chairman Lanzarone begins the Public Hearing explaining that he spoke to the Applicant. Chairman Lanzarone asked those present if they wished to speak on the matter by presenting new information, and no one responded. He explained that the Applicant has been considering other locations but nothing has materialized and he is still interested in this location. Mr. Whitehead does not wish to withdraw his application at this time. Chairman Lanzarone explained that the Board must reach a decision within the timeframe of 62 days of closing the Public Hearing. The Board has two options. The application can be continued as a Public Hearing or the Board can close the Public Hearing and make a decision based on the information that they have up until this point. The Code provides that the Applicant and the Board can mutually agree to extend the time to make a decision post Public Hearing closing. He explained to Mr. Whitehead that if he wishes to entertain that it will need to be communicated in writing to the Board. The Applicant has done so. Chairman Lanzarone reviews the letter with the Board and reviews the Board’s response to that letter.

At this time, Rich requests a motion to close the Public Hearing at 6:37pm.

Continued Discussion:

Chairman Lanzarone makes everyone aware that if an extension is approved, this will give the Board a timeframe of 104 days to make a decision. The Board discusses this matter and concludes that they do not want to accept the offer of an extension from the applicant. A letter will be sent to Mr. Whitehead explaining that the Board decided not to accept an extension. The Board is in agreement that the Applicant should be notified that it is necessary to provide all required documents by the next meeting submittal deadline or the application will be closed as incomplete. Chairman Lanzarone explains that the Applicant is proposing to grant the Board an extension of up to 104 days from closing of the public hearing. The Board comes to an agreement that this long time period is unacceptable and they concluded that there will be a letter sent to the Applicant indicating that the Board will not be accepting the offered extension and that the Board will make a decision on the application within the statutory 62 days.
