exits, and roll call was taken.
Planning Board Secretary Kristy Nelson noted that on page 2 of the Planning Board minutes from June 28, 2001 the heading of OLD BUSINESS was omitted and should be added just before the PRINZ Case and after WOINOSKI.

PUBLIC HEARINGS & OLD BUSINESS
FREEMAN - (2001-008) - 185 Broadway; 126 East Main St. & Klein Lane,
Port Ewen, NY
3 Lot Subdivision with a Lot Line Adjustment
Tax SBL #56.060-3-28
LINDA SMYTHE MADE A MOTION, SECONDED BY ROXANNE PECORA, THAT THE PLANNING BOARD OPEN UP THE PUBLIC HEARING FOR DOUG FREEMAN, CASE #2001-008. ALL MEMBERS PRESENT WERE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION WHICH CARRIED BY A 7-0 VOTE. Applicant Doug Freeman was not present at this meeting. Miles Putman of Shuster Associates, the Planning Board’s consultant, gave his project review for this case. A copy of the same is on file. It was noted that a letter dated July 16, 2001 from the Port Ewen Water/Sewer District Superintendent was received regarding water and sewer lines as well as a memo dated July 18, 2001 from the Town of Esopus Highway Superintendent pertaining to driveway cuts. In addition, it was noted that the applicant did amend his application and short EAF to reflect the change he requested from a two lot subdivision to a three lot subdivision with a lot line adjustment.
At this time, Chairperson Coffey called for public comments. None were made. Next, Board members’ comments were called for. Russ Shultis wondered if it would be possible to have some notation placed on the map that reflected who would be responsible for the installation of the sewer and water for Lots 2 & 3 as referenced in the Superintendent’s letter of July 16, 2001. Board member Fred Zimmer agreed and felt the Board should contact Superintendent Don Kiernan about what he wants to see on the map. It was also questioned why Don wanted an easement for the lines. Fred Zimmer and Miles Putman felt the lines should be in the highway right-of-way.
The Planning Board also felt that the plat should be revised to include the location of the existing water and sewer lines/connections, the location of access for Lots 2 and 3 as approved by the Town Highway Superintendent, proposed house locations for Lots 2 and 3, and the location of the surface drainage and the mapped bounds of the federal wetland.
With no applicant present to respond to the matters on this application, the Planning Board felt the best thing to do would be to adjourn the public hearing for a month in order to contact the applicant as well as Don Kiernan. KATHY WEITZE MADE A MOTION, SECONDED BY ROXANNE PECORA, THAT THE PLANNING BOARD ADJOURN THE FREEMAN PUBLIC HEARING UNTIL 7:00 PM ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, 2001. ALL MEMBERS PRESENT WERE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION WHICH CARRIED BY A 7-0 VOTE.
(Note: Applicant Doug Freeman arrived towards the end of the meeting.
He was given a copy of Shuster Associates project review and was told the
Public Hearing was adjourned until 7:00 pm on August 23. He indicated
that he might be changing the arrangement of his request that was before
the Board. For his information, a copy of these minutes will be mailed
to Mr. Freeman.)

ALL MEMBERS PRESENT WERE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION WHICH CARRIED BY A 7-0 VOTE. Steve and Elaine Hamilton were present at this meeting. Miles Putman of Shuster Associates, the Planning Board’s consultant, gave his project review for this case. A copy of the same is on file and a copy was given to the applicants. It was noted that the table of zoning data that was provided on the revised map did not have the corrected information as requested last month. At this time, the applicants submitted a revised plat with the corrected zoning block. Russ Shultis had a question about the 180.68’ measurement on the map on the northwest corner of the Motrie property. Steve Hamilton indicated that was the measurement for the Motrie property line. Chairperson Coffey called for public comments. None were made. LINDA SMYTHE MADE A MOTION, SECONDED BY ROXANNE PECORA, THAT THE PLANNING BOARD CLOSE THE HAMILTON PUBLIC HEARING. ALL MEMBERS PRESENT WERE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION WHICH CARRIED BY A 7-0 VOTE.

CITIVISION - (2001-015) - 126 Carney Road, Rifton, NY
Site Plan - Roof Over Basketball Court
Tax SBL #63.003-3-17 & 18
LINDA SMYTHE MADE A MOTION, SECONDED BY JOHN MCMICHAEL, THAT THE PLANNING BOARD OPEN THE CITIVISION, INC., HOOP HEAVEN, CASE #2001-15, PUBLIC HEARING. ALL MEMBERS PRESENT WERE IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION WHICH CARRIED BY A 7-0 VOTE. Keith Moore and Attorney J. Pisani represented the applicant at this meeting. Miles Putman of Shuster Associates, the Planning Board’s consultant, gave his project review for this case. A copy of the same is on file and a copy was given to the Mr. Pisani. It was noted that the plat was prepared by a local engineering firm, but not signed them. At this time, Chairperson Coffey called for public input.
Andrew Fredrick of Hardenburg Road stated that he was opposed to any
further expansion of Citivision until a complete site plan review of their
maximum total build out of the next 20-30 years had been completed especially
since he felt Citivision did not contributed anything positive to the Town
and they impacted the environment.
Mariam Mizel of 99 Hardenburg Road in Ulster Park noted that as a result of a 1999 agreement between Citivision and a group called the Concerned Citizens of Esopus, as well as a Zoning Board of Appeals’ finding, a decision was made that Citivision would need to do a complete site plan review in terms of any improvements to their property. Therefore, Ms. Mizel respectfully submitted to the Planning Board that there was a need for a complete site plan review not only speaking to the current develop or wish on the part of Citivision to add the proposed structure, but their entire overall plans for the development of this site. At this time, Mariam Mizel presented the Board with signed petitions from the Concerned Citizens of Esopus pertaining to the same.
Rob Hare of Carney Road had a concern about segmentation and felt some long term planning needed to be done for everyone’s sake; the neighbors, the Town, and Citivision. In addition, Mr. Hare stated that it appeared to him that the different areas of Citivision were on occasion being rented to outside groups. He wondered if this didn’t begin to become more of a business rather than a camp.
Jean Sills of 17 Hardenburg Road thought Citivision was a children’s camp like Goddard before it, but noted that this was not that entity at all. She stated that this was a massive thing much bigger than the Town itself. Mrs. Sills also complained about the noise from the older kids (17 & 18 year olds) at the camp. Jean Sills did not feel Citivision should be allowed to come in, present a plan, magnify it and keep magnifying it until they are a big enterprise that nothing can be done about.
Board member Linda Smythe asked Mrs. Sills how far away she lived from the camp. Jean Sills stated that she lived on the other end of Carney Road from the camp. Linda then asked Mrs. Sills if she could hear noise coming from the camp. Mrs. Sills said no, she was talking about Ann (Henderson) who does live next to the camp and was suffering from it. Linda then explained about the proposal for the curtain to help stop the noise. Jean Sills stated that this would have to be proven to her since she did not feel the curtain would help to stop the noise.
Roger Sexton of Carney Road also had a complaint about the noise coming from the camp in the mornings and throughout the day.
Ann Henderson of Carney Road stated that she is right next door to the camp and is victimized heavily by all their activities. Ms. Henderson felt Citivision disregards all agreements and are sneaky people. In addition, she does not feel a curtain would curtail the noise.
At this time, Rob Hare explained about the geography of the area, a possible reason why the sounds are projected. (A terraced area with outcrops of rocks that create reflecting surfaces.)
Bob Patterson of Hardenburg Road felt a roof structure would hold the sound in and wondered if anyone determined what kind of impact a curtain would have; was it effective in deadening noise. In addition, Mr. Patterson wondered what depth would need to be established for the proposed pine trees to deaden the sound and were the conditions there conducive to pine trees thriving.
Ed Karabec of Union Center Road wondered what the roof was going to be made out of. Citivision’s representative indicated it would be made out of steel. Mr. Karabec wondered if this would not amplify the sound like cars do when radios are being played loud.
Mr. Pisani, Citivision’s attorney, asked that the Planning Board keep
in mind that what is before them is a single application for a roof over
one (1) of the basketball courts. He did not believe this was in
anyway segmentation. Mr. Pisani noted that Citivision tries very
hard to comply with all of the rules and regulations of the Town, and they
are not in any way trying to creep in in the middle of night and do something
that is illegal or improper. Attorney Pisani stated that Citivision
was trying to improve their facilities, and they were not in any way creating
something by virtue of this application that would cause more disturbance;
they think that it would assist in diminishing some of the problems that
have been experienced. In addition, Mr. Pisani reminded everyone
that this was a children’s camp with some noise, but noted that some of
the people complaining knew it existed before they moved there.
Keith Moore of Citivision noted that he had responded to his neighbors every time they had a complaint. He also stated that their property was segmented when they bought it, and they expect to use what they bought.
Scott Teilhaber of 52 Carney Road stated that he loved what Citivision was doing and noted that they are good neighbors to him.
Judy from Rosendale, a parent of a camper, stated that she was not affiliated with any religious group, an aspect that spooked her about the camp in the beginning, but she was very impressed with it. She noted that there were 3 Ulster County residents that went to the camp last year and 12-15 this year. At this time, Chairperson Coffey questioned whether the camp was open to the public since it was her understanding that there was an earlier original stipulation that it not be open to the public. Keith Moore stated he was not familiar with this stipulation. Judy then indicated that her son did attend the camp through a Christian group.
Planning Board member Russ Shultis asked if the comment about the units
being rented out was a true statement. Keith Moore indicated that
they do contract with other Christian organizations; the same as Goddard
Planning Board member Kathy Weitze noted that other camps (Marist Brothers, the Mount, etc.) from the area also rent out to religious groups.
At this time, Planning Board member Fred Zimmer felt that the audience was entitled to an explanation of the proposal that was in front of the Board and what the Planning Board’s function was. He gave the same.
KATHY WEITZE MADE A MOTION, SECONDED BY LINDA SMYTHE, TO CLOSE THE CITIVISION PUBLIC HEARING. There was much audience object to this motion. The vote on the motion was as follows:
FRED ZIMMER...............NO KATHY WEITZE...................YES
JOHN MCMICHAEL......NO ROXANNE PECORA............NO
RUSS SHULTIS...............NO LINDA SMYTHE...................YES
BY A 2-5 VOTE, THE MOTION FAILED AND THE PUBLIC HEARING REMAINED OPEN.
Ed Karabec felt someone should be contacted to find out if a steel roof would have an opposite effect of what it is intended to do, thus creating more noise. Mr. Moore stated that they were willing to consult an engineer.
Mark Miller, the director of the basketball camp, from North Carolina, felt for the neighbors of the camp, but noted that he had heard some misinformation tonight. He noted that they follow a strict schedule, there are normal camp noises, and Keith Moore always addresses any noise problems.
At this time, two young campers spoke. Chris felt they needed a roof over the court because of the heat and rain especially since they had to keep to a schedule. He also noted that the music being played at the camp was not negative; it was Christian music that helped them to build character. Samuel Lee of Long Island stated that Citivision was a blessing that taught him discipline. He stressed that people’s lives had been changed because of Citivision’s camp; they are saving people, the world, and the afterlife.
Ann Henderson felt that the roof over the basketball court was not intended to protect the children from the sun and inclement weather, but rather to hold revivals. She suggested that the basketball court up top on the hill be covered.
John Mizel noted that the Town’s zoning law says that a site plan is
a plan that indicates the proposed development and uses of land or structures,
and the definition of proposed development says that if the site plan only
indicates the first stage, a supplementary plan shall indicate ultimate
development. He felt any new structure would trigger a full site
A woman from Carney Road wondered what the curtains on the side of the court would be like. Mr. Moore indicated that they intended to extend down 9’ with steel and then from there down there would be a tarp type thing that would be able to rolled up and down. The woman felt that noise would be amplified when the tarp was rolled up. She also reiterated that the ZBA did say that anything brought forward would need site plan approval.
Iza Hare stated that there was no questions that the work Citivision was doing was good work, but she was present at this meeting to make sure that Citivision goes for a full site plan showing the full build out plan or full scope of their project because they were required to do so.
Andrew Frederick believed that along the lines of a complete site plan review was why the New York State SEQR law talks about segmentation so as not to allow things to go by because it was impractical to review the entire thing at one time.
Jean Sills wondered if the Board realized the full magnitude of Citivision and asked that they remember the Zoning Board and the restrictions they made.
KATHY WEITZE MADE A MOTION, SECONDED BY LINDA SMYTHE, TO CLOSE
THE CITIVISION PUBLIC HEARING. ALL MEMBERS PRESENT WERE IN FAVOR
OF THE MOTION WHICH CARRIED BY A 7-0 VOTE.
CITIVISION - (2001-015) - 126 Carney Road, Rifton, NY
Site Plan - Roof Over Basketball Court
Tax SBL #63.003-3-17 & 18
Keith Moore and Attorney J. Pisani represented the applicant at this meeting. KATHY WEITZE MADE A MOTION, SECONDED BY LINDA SMYTHE, THAT THE PLANNING BOARD APPROVE CITIVISION’S SITE PLAN APPLICATION TO PUT A ROOF OVER ONE (1) BASKETBALL COURT. Discussion on the motion was had. Kathy Weitze and Linda Smythe noted that they felt Citivision had complied with what they were required to do. John McMichael wondered about a noise ordinance, and it was noted that the Town does not have one. Chairperson Coffey indicated that she wasn’t sure that the material being proposed for the construction of the roof would make the problem better rather than worse and would like to investigate this further. Roxanne Pecora suggested referring the application to the Planning Board’s engineer for review. AT THIS TIME, KATHY WEITZE AMENDED HER MOTION BY ADDING THAT THE PLANNING BOARD FINDS NO SIGNIFICANT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT UNDER SEQR AND CITIVISION ESTABLISHES A LETTER OF CREDIT IN THE AMOUNT OF $3,000 TO ENSURE THE COMPLETION AND MAINTENANCE OF THE PROPOSED TREE PLANTINGS. At this time the Board members were polled.
FRED ZIMMER.................YES KATHY WEITZE.................YES
JOHN MCMICHAEL........NO ROXANNE PECORA..........NO
RUSS SHULTIS.................YES LINDA SMYTHE.................YES
BY A 4-3 VOTE, THE MOTION CARRIED.
Before leaving the meeting, J. Pisani informed Chairperson Coffey that
they would look into sound proof material for the roof.
PRINZ - (2000-021) - 272 Broadway, Port Ewen, NY
2 Lot Subdivision & Lot Line Adjustment
Tax SBL #56.075-2-2 & 23
Applicant George Prinz was present at this meeting. Russ Shultis
noted that he attended the July ZBA meeting to clarify their variance regarding
this property. The decision he got from the Board was that they required
52,500 sq. ft. which coincides with the zoning rule of 40,000 sq.
ft. for a commercial building and 12,500 sq. ft. for a residential lot/house
on the property. Russ also noted that he approached Mr. Spinnenweber
to inquire about the sewer and water extension that runs through the Prinz
property. Mr. Spinnenweber informed Russ that there was an agreement
between Mr. Harris, the former property owner of the Prinz property, and
himself to do the work at the time of the Avon Park development.
Mr. Prinz disagreed since there was nothing in writing and he contacted
Mrs. Harris who said there was no agreement. Russ added that at his
meeting with Mr. Spinnenweber, Mr. Spinnenweber made known his intent,
which is backed up a letter dated July 16, 200, a copy of which is on file,
not to convey his piece of property to Mr. Prinz. He wondered if
since the ZBA’s decision and the application currently in front of the
Planning Board was based on Mr. Spinnenweber’s property conveyance could
anything more be done with this application. Mr. Prinz noted that
he just wanted to subdivide his property and asked that the Planning Board
tell him what they wanted. The Board advised Mr. Prinz that he would
have to revise his maps to conform to the zoning laws. Russ Shultis
noted that if it was Mr. Prinz’s intent to have a residential lot, he wanted
him to be aware that he would be responsible for extending the road, Bowne
St. Mr. Prinz stated that he knew this. Kathy Weitze suggested
that Mr. Prinz have his engineer/surveyor contact Miles Putman, the Planning
Board’s consultant to see if there was a way to work out Mr. Prinz’s problem.
The remainder of the Board members and Miles agreed.
STACCIO - (2001-007) - Off Hussey Hill Road, Union Center, NY
2 Lot Subdivision and Lot Line Revision w/Kohn
Tax SBL #63.004-1-6
Since the Planning Board was notified, via a copy of the ZBA’s findings
and conclusions, that the Staccio variance request was denied, this case
was not heard.
HEAVENLY VALLEY - (1988-025) - St. Joseph’s Blvd., Four Sisters Land
& Scott St., Port Ewen, NY
Phase 2 of Subdivision
Tax SBL #56.075-3-1
Mr. Joe Grogan and Mr. Danielle were present at this meeting. Nancy Clark of Chazen Engineering, the Planning Board’s engineer, spoke regarding the drainage. She felt that the current plan set submitted for the application was inadequate for a detailed technical review to proceed and noted that there were two (2) issues that were more substantive than the lacking detail. One was that the NYS DEC has become more stringent in their requirements since 1992 which this application must abide by and two, the US Army Corp. of Engineers also has become more stringent. Nancy stated that in general there was a lot of work that needed to be done before she would recommend that the Planning Board consider final approval for Phase II. In order to help facilitate this, she recommended that outside of the Planning Board venue, since there were so many technical issues to be discussed, the Planning Board consider allowing a meeting between the Planning Board Chairperson, the Highway Superintendent, the Water & Sewer Superintendent, the applicant’s engineer and owner/rep or the contractor, Miles Putman, and herself. The Planning Board agreed this was a good idea and a tentative meeting was scheduled for the following Monday afternoon.
Mr. Danielle noted that the sewer easement was reviewed by the school
district’s lawyer and everything looked good except for a couple minor
wording errors. He anticipated that the written easement would be
signed by next Friday. It was also noted that Scott Street was being
At this time, the audience asked to speak. Chairperson Coffey informed them that this was not a public hearing. They noted that the Town Board told them to come to this Planning Board meeting and if they didn’t get anywhere, come back to them. Again, Marilyn Coffey noted that this was not a public hearing. She assured the public that they would be notified when a public hearing was scheduled and explained the proceed of applications before the Planning Board.
DACON/IRON MOUNTAIN - (2001-013) - Ulster Avenue, Port Ewen, NY

Tax SBL #63.002-2-10
Keith Chadwick of Iron Mountain was present at this meeting, along with Attorney Mike Moriello. Miles Putman of Shuster Associates gave his project review for the Site Plan Amendment of Iron Mountain, Phase 3. A copy of the same was given to Mr. Moriello and a copy is on file. It was noted that the Ulster County Planning Board’s response was ‘Reviewed No Decision’ with staff comments. In addition, a letter dated July 16, 2001, was received from Superintendent Don Kiernan regarding the water and sewer lines. Mike Moriello presented the Board with a copy of a letter dated July 24, 2001, from the Ulster County Dept. of Highways and Bridges. This was reviewed and discussed in detail.
