76 Broadway (Murray’s) – Site Plan Amendment: Applicant Jesse Feldmus brought in the
amended site plan showing the location of the string lights and speakers on the back patio. The
speakers are to be faced 25 degrees down, 40 degrees inward and will remain at a height of 7.5
feet. Ginger Grab made a motion to approve the site plan as amended. Donna Matthews
seconded. All in favor. Motion carried.
8 Friendship Street – Site Plan Amendment: Applicant Tim Voell brought in the plans for a
fence on the west side and north side of his property. He showed the Board a picture of what the
stockade fence will look like. Mr. Voell stated that he spoke with his neighbor on the north side
and they are in agreement with the fence. They would like it to remain bare wood on their side
and Mr. Voell will paint his side white. The applicant showed a picture of the original fence that
was around the house and he stated that he wants to replicate the posts and the location as much
as possible. Chair Billeci stated that the fence in front will look good and that the neighbors
wanted the fence on the side for separation. The Board had no issues with the project. Leigh
Palmer moved to approve the amended site plan. Ginger Grab seconded. All in favor. Motion
Pamela Morin Project – Site Plan Review: Pamela Morin presented her plans for building two
apartment houses which will face Pine Street on the parcel behind Milagros. There will be six
apartments in each building. There will be a common, grassy area between the buildings. The
buildings would be gabled and have porches. Each apartment would have two bedrooms, a small
den and two bathrooms. The applicant also stated she would put in a walkway on the western
side of the property so people could walk from Pine Street to Broadway.
A discussion followed. The applicant was informed that since this is a very large project it will
have to go before the village’s engineer, planner and attorney for review. Ms. Morin will need to
include with her site plan application and long SEQR form the plans for drainage, outdoor
lighting, elevation, floor plans, tree location, water/sewer, and parking. Ms. Morin stated she
will bring six copies of her plans to the Clerk’s Office and will also leave an escrow check,
amount to be determined, with the Clerk at that time.
The Board reviewed the minutes from the September 17, 2012 Planning Board Meeting. The
sentence Chair Billeci pointed out that they were in violation of their site plan and that is the
reason they needed to return to the Planning Board was added to the sixth paragraph on the
second page. Ginger Grab moved to approve the minutes as amended, Leigh Palmer seconded.
All in favor. Motion carried.
Ginger Grab moved to close the meeting at 7:50 PM. Donna Matthews seconded. All in favor.
