Chairman Shultis noted that in Shuster’s project review for this application, it was suggested that a note be added on to Lot 3 that states “not a building lot”.  Discussion was had regarding the Downey right-of-way.  The tax map and deeds were reviewed.  The Planning Board was unsure of the exact location of the Downey right-of-way, but felt it would not be impacted, nor have an impact on this lot line adjustment request.  Essentially, whatever right-of-ways are in effect would remain in effect.  ROXANNE PECORA MADE A MOTION, SECONDED BY LINDA SMYTHE, THAT THE PLANNING BOARD RENDER A DETERMINATION OF NON-SIGNIFICANCE (NEGATIVE DECLARATION) PURSUANT TO SEQR AND GRANT PRELIMINARY PLAT APPROVAL; WAIVE SUBMISSION OF A FINAL PLAT AND GRANT CONDITIONAL FINAL PLAT APPROVAL SUBJECT TO THE ADDITION OF A NOTE ON LOT 3 THAT STATES “NOT A BUILDING LOT”.  ALL MEMBERS PRESENT WERE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION WHICH CARRIED BY A 6-0 VOTE.

OLD BUSINESS

PARKHURST - (2002-23) - 29 Hildebrant Lane, Port Ewen, NY
                   Conditional Use Permit - Multi-family residence
                 Tax SBL #56.076-2-4.1

Diane McCord, Executrix, represented Dave Parkhurst’s estate at this meeting.  Chairman Shultis reviewed the history of this property with the Board.  The Planning Board is reviewing this application for a Conditional Use Permit to allow an existing accessory apartment in the main residence’s basement.  It was the Board’s feeling that the sq. footage requirement for an accessory apt. was grandfathered since the main house was built in the 20’s with an apt. for the servants.  RUSS SHULTIS MADE A MOTION, SECONDED BY ROXANNE PECORA, THAT THE PLANNING BOARD SCHEDULE A PUBLIC HEARING FOR THE PARKHURST APPLICATION ON THURSDAY, MARCH 27, 2003 AT 7:10 PM AND REFER A COPY OF THIS APPLICATION TO THE ULSTER COUNTY PLANNING BOARD.  ALL MEMBERS PRESENT WERE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION WHICH CARRIED BY A 6-0 VOTE.  

BRUDERHOF COMMUNITIES IN NEW YORK - (2002-22) - 2023 Route 213, Dashville, NY

                                   Tax SBL #71.002-1-14.2

Applicant presented the Board with a new submission of the floor plan & elevations with drainage information.  Chairman Shultis noted that the Ulster County Planning Board’s recommendation was ‘No County Impact with Non-Binding Comments’.  The non-binding comments were that the Board may wish to consider having the applicant provide lighting, landscaping and drainage details.  The applicant noted that there will be no proposed lighting for this structure.  Chairman Shultis noted that the landscaping issue was touched upon at last month’s meeting and tonight’s submission showed the drainage details.  He then stated that in reference to landscaping, as
previously discussed, if a motion was made this evening, he would like the Board to keep in mind Zoning Code 123-47B.4. which in essence states that to the best of their ability, the applicant will maintain a landscape buffer between the building and Route 213.  It was also noted that this application was referred to the Town’s Environmental Advisory Board, but no comments have yet been received.  KATHY WEITZE MADE A MOTION, SECONDED BY ROXANNE PECORA, THAT THE PLANNING BOARD, REGARDING CASE #2002-22, GRANT SITE PLAN APPROVAL, SUBJECT TO THE RETENTION OF THE WOODED AND ROCK SLOPE BUFFER BETWEEN THE NEW BUILDING SITE (AND ADJACENT IMPROVED AREAS) AND THE NORTHERLY PROPERTY LINE ALONG ROUTE 213 (WHICH WOULD PERMIT SELECTIVE CUTTING OF OLD AND DISEASED TREES, BUT WOULD REQUIRE PROVISION OF REPLACEMENT PLANTINGS).  ALL MEMBERS PRESENT WERE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION.  MOTION CARRIED BY A 6-0 VOTE.  
   
MAHAIRAS - (2002-10) - 100-120 Carney Road, Rifton, NY
                 Major (6-Lot) Re-Subdivision w/Private Road
               Tax SBL #63.003-3-22.4

Engineer John Davidson represented the applicant at this meeting.  Nancy Chazen, the Planning Board’s engineer was also present for this case.  Nancy provided the Planning Board with educational reference materials regarding stormwater requirements.  She also submitted a written letter from herself to the Planning Board dated Feb. 27, 2003 regarding the Mahairas subdivision which she then reviewed.  A copy of the same is on file and a copy was given to Mr. Davidson.  Nancy’s comments were as follows:

·    The applicant must comply with the requirements of the NYSDEC SPDES General Permit for Stormwater Discharges from Construction Activity Permit No. GP-02-01 which became effective on January 8, 2003 since the threshold of disturbance has been reduced from less than or equal to 5 acres, total for the entire buildout of the project, to 1 acre and this project exceeds the current threshold.
·    The applicant is required to develop a full Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) including water quality and quantity control plan components and  it must conform with GP-02-01 and NYS DEC’s Recommended Standards.  
·    The SWPPP is to include a report with detailed calculations and design drawing information related to stormwater management and erosion and sediment control.
·     Stormwater Management facilities must be sized for the 25 year design storm.  
·    The owner/developer must complete the construction of all roadway and drainage facilities in total before any lot is conveyed.  Requiring the lot owner to later construct part of the drainage improvements is not permitted.  
·    The design drawings must include a maintenance schedule.
·    The use of hay bales for temporary erosion and sediment control is no longer permitted.
·    The SWPPP and Notice of Intent (NOI) must eventually be available at the construction site for the duration of the proposed disturbance.

In addition, Nancy Clark concurred with the Planning Board’s requiring Ulster County Health Dept. approval as a condition of preliminary subdivision approval and also recommended that the road, regardless of whether it is private or dedicated, be designed in conformance with the current Town Highway requirements.  In concluding, Nancy noted that more detailed comments would be provided after the issues of compliance with NYSDEC Phase 2 Stormwater Requirements are addressed by the applicant and his representatives along with a written response to her above comments.  

Since the Planning Board’s engineer felt that this project’s disturbance would be greater than an acre, Chairman Shultis asked John Davidson about the computer program, discussed previously, that was run and generated an area of less than 1 acre of disturbance.  John Davidson did not have any printouts from this computer program, but  
noted that they purposely reduced the length of the road from the original proposal and he believes the disturbance would be less than an acre.  Nancy Clark noted that the acre of disturbance is the total aggregate of the project, not just the road.  John Davidson felt the individual lots are exempt.  Nancy Clark stated that was not her understanding of the regulations and felt this was something they would need clarification from the DEC on.  Chairman Shultis felt at this point it would be best that John confer with Nancy to get an understanding of where we are at.  John Davidson stated that regarding the road, it is still as proposed, which is to be private.  Nancy asked Mr. Davidson if she would find that the road was in compliance with the current standards.  Mr. Davidson said no; it was not as wide.  Nancy asked what the Town’s road width requirement.  Chairman Shultis believed it was 24’.  Nancy Clark noted that the idea of having a narrower road is consistent with the State’s wish to reduce non-point source pollution and made good sense.  She added, however, that often times, even if a town allows private road, the town would require the road be built to town specs because there is the chance that in the future there could be a problem with maintenance of the road and the town ends up getting the problem.  Nancy suggested that the Board have the Highway Superintendent weigh in on the concept of a narrower road.  It was noted that the applicant had established a $2,500 escrow account with the Town’s supervisor.  Chairman Shultis also noted that the recreation fee of $100 per lot ($600) in lieu of land being set aside for a park would be required.  Mr. Davidson was also advised that the applicant may have to obtain a variance for the flag lot if it was determined that the pole is longer than what is allowed under the Town’s zoning.  


NEW BUSINESS

ROONEY - (2003-03) - 47 Union Center Road, St. Remy, NY
                     Conditional Use Permit - Accessory Apt.
                 Tax SBL #63.001-2-13.1

Attorney Richard Riseley represented the applicant at this meeting.  Chairman Shultis reviewed the history of this application and noted that the applicant is before the Planning Board for a conditional use permit for an accessory apartment which will be in the barn and the primary residence which will be built at a later date.  Mr. Riseley submitted floor plans.  Discussion was had regarding the sq. footage of the accessory apt.  At this time, Chairman Shultis read a portion of the Building Inspector’s Feb. 20, 2003 letter which stated that it was his opinion that the building would comply with town and state codes.  A copy of the same is on file.  ROXANNE PECORA MADE A MOTION, SECONDED BY KATHY WEITZE, THAT THE PLANNING BOARD SCHEDULE A PUBLIC HEARING ON THURSDAY, MARCH 27, 2003 AT 7:20 PM FOR THE ROONEY APPLICATION, CASE #2003-3.  ALL MEMBERS PRESENT WERE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION WHICH CARRIED BY A 6-0 VOTE.  Richard Riseley gave Chairman Shultis a copy of some language he put together regarding a condition because the primary residence is not built yet.  Russ noted that the language read - the apartment will be accessory conditioned upon the primary residence being built within a certain time frame.  

VENDITTI - (2003-05) - Lindemann Lane & Peters Lane, Ulster Park, NY
              2 Lot Re-Subdivision
            Tax SBL #72.001-1-8.11

Robert Venditti and his father, Connie, were present at this meeting.  At this time, Chairman Shultis reviewed Shuster Associates’ project review.  A copy of the same is on file and a copy was given to Mr. Venditti.  Robert Venditti was informed that he would need to go before the Zoning Board of Appeals for an area variance to create a lot without deeded road frontage as well as submit an Agricultural Data Statement.  Fred Zimmer recommended to the applicant that a better inset be put on his maps that shows the whole property.  Discussion was had regarding the railroad track.  Connie Venditti noted that there never was a right-of-way across the tracks.  He stated  
that his father-in-law used the Montella property access when he farmed the other side of the tracks and when ConRail took over they eliminated this only access.  Connie added that in reality the acreage on the other side of the tracks is, for all intensive purposes, landlocked.  Mr. Venditti stated he went to CSX and tried to get a right-of-way, but was refused.  He noted, however, that they are primarily concerned with the property on this side of the tracks.  Robert Venditti stated that the right-of-way that he was planning on extending along the southern bounds of his lot would not be able to service the property on the other side of the tracks.  Connie Venditti added that if it became an issue, they would stop the right-of-way before it got to the end of the property.  He then noted that all the properties being cut out are for his children who are building on the properties, and Robert was the last one to build.  Chairman Shultis stated that he would like to see the 50’ right-of-way extension between Lot 3 (Robert Venditti) and the Hoban property removed.  Connie Venditti noted that right-of-way was being created because there was some good fill in there and Robert’s uncle, Don Hoban, suggested making the 50’ right-of-way to access some of it to use for his septic system, etc. and as a drive up into the side of the house.  Fred Zimmer asked where the right-of-way ended previously.  Robert Venditti and his surveyor believed it ended at Jeff’s lot.  Jeff Venditti’s files (Case #2000-07) will be pulled to see exactly where the right-of-way ended.  Chairman Shultis stated that Miles Putman of Shuster Associates did noted that the Planning Board could take into consideration conditioning this proposal to the extent that there would be no further subdivision unless the road or right-of-way is built up to Town specs and deeded over.  It was noted, however, that any deeding over of roads to the Town is the decision of the Town Highway Superintendent and the Town Board.  Fred Zimmer noted that proposed and existing house, septic and well locations should be depicted on the map.  The Planning Board will refer this application to the Zoning Board of Appeals.  

REYNOLDS - (2003-06) - 1291 Route 213, 561 Main St., St. Remy, NY
                          Lot Line Adjustment
                          Tax SBL #63.006-3-15.115 & 22

Mr. Reynolds and his surveyor, Mike Vetere, were present at this meeting.  Mr. Vetere noted that in 1985 he did a five (5) lot subdivision on Route 213 for Parodi and subsequently, Mr. Reynolds bought Lot 5 and his brother bought Lot 2.  Mr. Reynolds then made arrangements to buy a portion of Lot 2 from his brother, and built his home on that portion of his brother’s property since the intent was to subdivide a piece of Lot 2, or create a lot line revision, attaching it to former Lot 5 from the Parodi subdivision.  However, maps for the lot line revision were never filed.  Maps were reviewed.  It was noted that the applicant would need authorization from Deborah E. Reynolds and William Newt Reynolds to act on their behalf regarding this proposal.  In addition, the plat should show existing lot lines to be deleted, the approximate locations of the existing house, septic, well, driveways and other on-site improvements, any easements or encumbrances of record, a bulk zoning regulation block, and a location/inset map.  JOHN MCMICHAEL MADE A MOTION, SECONDED BY LINDA SMYTHE, THAT THE PLANNING BOARD SCHEDULE A PUBLIC HEARING FOR THE REYNOLDS APPLICATION, CASE #2003-6, ON THURSDAY, MARCH 27, 2003, AT 7:30 PM DEPENDENT UPON A SATISFACTORY MAP BEING SUBMITTED BY MARCH 13, 2003.  ALL MEMBERS PRESENT, EXCEPT FRED ZIMMER AND RUSS SHULTIS WHO VOTED NO, WERE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION.  BY A 4-2 VOTE, THE MOTION CARRIED.  

BUNTEN - (2003-07) - 272 Broadway, Port Ewen, NY
                    Conditional Use Permit - Auto Repair Services
                    Tax SBL #56.075-2-2

Daniel Bunten was present at this meeting.  Chairman Shultis reviewed Shuster Associates’ project review for this case.  A copy of the same is on file and a copy was given to the applicant.  It was noted that a second or third dwelling unit is not permitted in the GC District and it was undetermined how the existing apt. in the commerical building got established.  It was recommended that if the dwelling unit existed, with proper local approvals, prior to the enactment of the revised zoning law in 1995, then it (and the resulting nonconforming two family use) should  
be deemed as legally non-conforming, along with the site density.  The Planning Board should request documentation on this second dwelling.  Chairman Shultis also noted to the Board that in addition to the existing access drive being to narrow, as mentioned in Shuster Associates’ review, there was also a frontage problem in that a repair shop requires a 100’ road frontage.  Russ also believed that the Town’s code does not allow an access to a commercial business through a residence (123-21E.5.)  Mr. Bunten was informed that to continue with his proposal, he would have to try to obtain variances and then come back before the Planning Board.  After obtaining the required variances, the proposed commerical uses would require additional plan drawing details and possibly a brief project description or narrative.  The parking would need to be expanded and loading bays, if they exist on the commercial building, should be shown on the plat.  In addition a detailed plan submission should show the internal division of building occupancies, and provide a tabulation of required parking.  New exterior lighting, if proposed, should be glare-shielded with full cut-offs.  A detail drawing should be provided for the new sign, if proposed and landscaping is required as per the standards of the 9W Overlay District, Section 123-17.  Fred Zimmer noted also that a zoning block should be added to the map.  Mr. Bunten noted that no new lighting was being proposed.  The applicant will let the Board know how he wishes to proceed.  

ESP LAND DEV. - (2003-08) - 75-77 Ulster Ave.; 5, 7-98 Fawn Meadows Road, Ulster Park, NY
                                  4 Lot Subdivision
                                  Tax SBL #63.004-3-11.34

Surveyor Patricia Brooks represented the applicant at this meeting.  Chairman Shultis reviewed Shuster Associates’ project review.  A copy of the same is on file and a copy was given to Ms. Brooks.  Russ Shultis then made note of Art Cross’ letter of 2/17/03 to the Planning Board regarding the road.  A copy of the same is on file.  It was noted that the recreation fee requirement of $100 per lot would be required on this application.  Patty Brooks asked if the plans that previously had been approved for the road construction and drainage were satisfactory.  She also asked for a copy of them.  The old subdivision files pertaining to this case will be pulled and reviewed.  Ms. Brooks stated that she has notified the applicant that she believed that he would be subject to the new stormwater pollution prevention provisions that came into effect in Jan. 2003.  Patty will also contact the Planning Board’s engineer, Nancy Clark, to see what the resolution was with the Mahairas case pertaining to the SPDES regulations as they are similar.  Board of Health approval has been obtained on the four (4) lots.  Chairman Shultis asked for written confirmation of the same.  For the record, Patty Brooks stated that the applicant was not planning on further subdividing Lots 1, 2, or 3, but noted there was a hope that they would be able to make some drainage improvements on the site and come back in some point in time to further subdivide Lot 4.  She also noted that it was the applicant’s intent for the Town to take the road over.  Roxanne Pecora wondered what the procedure would be for getting the required preliminary acceptance of a road.  Chairman Shultis will check with Miles on the same.  Russ also suggested that Ms. Brooks have her field guys check the culverts because he didn’t think the one was 16 inches, and he noted that a few lines were missing, bearings and distances, along the roadway.  There was also a question as to whether or not Lot 1 would be a flagged lot.  Chairman Shultis also wondered if Art Cross would want an easement for the ditch by the pond where the 2 culvert outlets empty into.  Russ Shultis then informed Ms. Brooks that an escrow account in the amount of $2,500 would need to be established with the Town’s supervisor for this application.  RUSS SHULTIS MADE A MOTION, SECONDED BY KATHY WEITZE, THAT THE PLANNING BOARD GRANT SKETCH PLAN APPROVAL AND HAVE THE APPLICANT ESTABLISH A $2,500 ESCROW ACCOUNT, AS WELL AS SUBMIT A FULL EAF.  ALL MEMBERS PRESENT WERE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION WHICH CARRIED BY A 6-0 VOTE.  
 
MISCELLANEOUS BUSINESS

Presubmission  - Schroeter

Todd Schroeter is proposing an exchange of land between two abutting parcels.  Maps were reviewed.  There was some question as to whether or not Section 123-21.D.4. pertained to this application as mentioned in Shuster Associates project review.  Mr. Schroeter was informed that he would need a map showing all of the two (2) parcels involved in the swap and also then submit a formal lot line/subdivision application.  

Presubmission - Wesley

Charlie Wesley was present at this meeting and explained his proposal for a lot line revision with his neighbor, Bill Benson.  4/10th of an acre will be deeded over to Mr. Benson where he parks his vehicles and this will in turn make the Benson lot conforming.  Mr. Welsey was informed that he would need to submit a formal application with survey maps showing both lots involved.  Authorization to act on their behalf would also be required from the Bensons.

One (1) ZBA referral (Parkhurst) was received by the Planning Board.  It was agreed that the Planning Board’s response on this application should be ‘The Planning Board recommends approval’.
