                                                                                                215 Route 15 South

                                                                                                Minor Site Plan

 

            Ms. Hartmann stated this is an application to renovate and convert an existing residence to an office use.  It is located in the Office district.  One item missing is showing the existing structures, driveways, right of ways, ect. within 200 feet of subject site.  However, there are 16 waivers that they are requesting.  Some of them may be minor and some may be major.  The applicant is not here and it is the committees recommendation we not grant any waivers and make sure the applicant is here next month to give us a reason why we should grant the waivers. 

 

Battaglia/DeSario                                            No. 06-06        Block 127, Lots 11, 11.01 & 12

                                                                                                Commodore Dr. & Yacht Club Dr.

                                                                                                Lot Line Adjustment

 

            Ms. Hartmann stated there are a number of waivers being requested.  This application is simply a lot line adjustment application to transfer approximately 1600 sq. ft. from one developed residential lot to another.  Waivers are requested from showing structures within 200 ft, roads and watercourses within 500 ft of the site, all wells and subsurface sewage disposal systems within 100 ft, the building permit envelope and shade tree easement.  It is the recommendation of the committee that these waivers be granted and the application heard tonight.

 

            Mayor Felter moved to grant the waivers, deem the application complete, and hear the application tonight.  Mr. Mitchko seconded the motion.

 

In Favor:            Mr. Mikowski, Chief Palko, Mayor Felter, Mr. Mitchko, Mr. Hine, and Chairman Williams.

 

 

TFUF Enterprises, LLC                             No. 06-07        Block 266, Lots 3, 4 & 6

                                                                                                12 Taylor Road

                                                                                                Minor Site Plan

 

            Ms. Hartmann stated the applicant has agreed to submit the following items that have not been submitted:  showing the key map, the existing structures within 200 ft, and the names and addresses of property owners within 200 feet.  They are asking for a number of waivers that include:  the roads within 500 ft, existing wells and subsurface disposal systems within 100 ft, subsurface disposal system testing, on tract proposed waterlines and valves, location of trees of 6? or more in diameter, a soil removal/fill plan, soil erosion and control plan, which the applicant has stated there will be no soil movement, a landscaping plan, and lighting plan.  This is an internal minor application for the overall site plan so it was the committees thought that these waivers could be granted.

 

            Mayor Felter stated this site is under review by our zoning official and other officials for violations under their current site plan.  We need to get a report from them.

 

            Mr. Coe stated he thinks we should get the report, but there has been some substantial work done on the site within the last month or two.  One of the things the applicant wants to do with this application is to replace a fence on the previous site plan with a landscaped berm.

 

            Ms. Hartmann stated the application remains incomplete.

 

APPLICATIONS:

 

Battaglia/DeSario                                            No. 06-06        Block 127, Lots 11, 11.01 & 12

                                                                                                Commodore Dr. & Yacht Club Dr.

                                                                                                Lot Line Adjustment

 

            Mr. Ted Battaglia, applicant, is present and sworn in.

 

            Mr. Alfred Stewart, Professional Engineer and Land Surveyor, is present and sworn in.  He gave his credentials and the board accepted them.

 

            Mr. Stewart stated we are taking 1600 sq. ft. from one piece of property and placing onto the other piece of property.  One piece of property is currently pie shaped and this would make it more of a rectangular shape.  We received a copy of the engineers report and have no problems with it.

 

Chairman Williams opened the meeting to the public.

            There being no comments the public portion is closed.

           

            Mayor Felter moved to approve the application.  Mr. Mitchko seconded the motion.

 

In Favor:            Councilwoman Merz, Mr. Mikowski, Chief Palko, Mayor Felter, Mr. Deutsch, Mr. Mitchko, Mr. Hine, and Chairman Williams.

 

Dimauro                                                           No. 05-10        Block 105, Lot 1

                                                                                                169 Route 181

                                                                                                Minor Site Plan

 

            Mr. Daniel McCarthy represents the applicant is present.

 

            Mr. Michael Bengis, Architect, is present and sworn in.  He gave his credentials and the board accepted them.

 

            Mr. Guy Dimauro, applicant, is present and sworn in.

 

            Mr. McCarthy stated we are here for a minor site plan.  Formally on the site there was a Harringtons Mattress warehouse and storage and previous to that an automotive repair shop.  Now Mr. Dimauro is there trading as ?The Boat Doctor?.  He repairs boats and sells supplies and has some limited boat storage on site and extensive storage off site.  We would like to board to consider our site plan as modified.  We have adequately addressed issues such as parking.

 

            Ms. Hartmann stated it is a change in use from a service station to a boat service station.  The applicant on his plan has the list of required parking showing that he needs 27 spaces and he is providing 29 spaces, two of which are for trucks.  You are showing only two bays.  Is that all you will be using.

 

            Mr. Dimauro stated yes.

 

            Ms. Hartmann stated then that should be stated in the resolution.  It also appears the boats will be stored behind the larger of the two buildings.  Is that correct.

 

            Mr. Dimauro stated yes.

 

            Ms. Hartmann stated the board would like to know approximately how many boats at the max you would be storing.  There is no permanent storage allowed, so it would be temporarily while you are working on them.

 

            Mr. Dimauro stated anywhere from 1-25 boats.

 

            Mr. Coe stated you show an area in the back for parked boats for repair and you have on the site plan an outline of 4 boats.  You just stated you will park up to 25 boats.  In his letter dated November 8th he indicated areas for the parking of boats should be clearly identified on the plan.  Could you show me what part of the site you will park boats on?

 

            Mr. Dimauro stated back behind the building.

 

            Mr. Coe asked if he were going to park them just there and not over the septic system.

            Mr. Dimauro stated he will not park boats over the septic system.

 

            Mr. Coe stated he did not do what he asked for on the plans.  He is going to have to show a shaded area where the boats will be parked.  Your site plan as submitted shows an area for 4 boats.  You will need to submit a plan to show the shaded area for the boat parking.

 

            Mr. Coe stated he has a comment in his letter concerning the boulders that block the entrance off of Prospect Point Road. 

 

            Mr. Dimauro stated they have been removed and we get a convoy of people every day trying to beat the corner.

 

            Mr. Coe stated your plans state the boulders have been there for over 20 years and they prevent errant drivers from coming thru the property on a regular basis.

 

            Mr. Bengis stated he did the original site plan for Harringtons in 1979 or 1980.  The boulders were there then.  Without consulting with his client, he took it upon himself to make that notation.  If that needs to be changed he will change it.

 

            Mr. Coe stated the applicant should contact the traffic safety officer as to whether it is better to have the boulders or keep them removed.  You would normally try to have entrances on the less traveled street.

 

            Mayor Felter stated that is a very busy intersection and the site distance going down 181 is very good.  It would be better with the boulders there.

 

            Chief Palko stated he does not have a problem with the boulders staying there.

 

Chairman Williams opened the meeting to the public.

            There being no comments the public portion is closed.

 

            Councilwoman Merz moved to approve the application with the conditions a shaded area be shown on the plan for proposed boat parking, only two bays will be used, and the boulders be returned to the area as shown on the plan.  Mr. Deutsch seconded the motion.

 

In Favor:            Councilwoman Merz, Mr. Mikowski, Chief Palko, Mayor Felter, Mr. Deutsch, Mr. Mitchko, Mr. Hine, and Chairman Williams.
