Discussion:

Board Response Planner Response
Chairman Lanzarone explains to the Board that he spoke to Amy Weiss who is interested in buying a parcel located at 262 County Route 2. It is in the A-3 Zoning District. She does not believe the driveway is in a safe area and would like to know if she will be able to move it. She is also interested in sub-dividing the parcel and needs to know if she will be able to access the lot by means of an easement. She is not the current owner but she is interested in knowing if these things can be accomplished before she makes a purchase.

Larry- thinks this should be entertained in the same way the she is proposing this

Todd suggests that the other way to handle this is to advise her to sit with an engineer and pay the cost for their time to have her questions answered

Rich states that the consultant will not give the same type of answer as the Board. Rich-in speaking to Amy Weiss, she is willing to pay the town

 

 

Rich explains that she is questioning if she would be able to use single access

Rich explains Rays role to the Board/ he is the Building Inspector, Code Enforcement Officer, Zoning Enforcement Officer- when Ray attends a pre-application conference it is as the Zoning Enforcement Office/In a small town it is common for one person to have multiple roles

Kris suggests speaking to county regarding this matter since it is on County Route 2.

Sylvia asks if this is a question of the 2 parcels using one driveway.

Kathy explains that there is not information

Rich instructs secretary to put her on the calendar as a pre-application meeting

 

Bonnie explains that the pre-application meeting is free/about one hour

Bonnie explains to the Board that with a sub-division application, the applicant can come in prior to filling out the application so that there can be guidance in the process.

At a minimum she can begin with speaking to Ray

Bonnie discusses the rules of 280-A and Katy’s Law

 

 

 

The meeting was adjourned at 8:00pm.

 

Respectfully Submitted,

Holly Behnke, Secretary to the Planning Board
