VILLAGE OF TIVOLI PLANNING BOARD
MEETING MINUTES
MARCH 25, 2024
7:00 PM
WATTS DE PEYSTER HALL

Present: Lisa Schwarzbaum, Chairwoman; Andrew Tejerina, J.P. Ward, Wendy Hansen,
Donna Matthews

Absent: Pamela Morin

Also Present: Mayor Joel Griffith

Lisa Schwarzbaum called the meeting to order at 7:00 pm.

Mayor Joel Griffith, the applicant, is requesting a lot line consolidation of four parcels of
the Village of Tivoli’s land. The village is seeking this consolidation process in order to
expand the firehouse. The plan is to expand the firehouse westward, but this would
disrupt parcel property lines. Mayor Griffith is requesting to fuse these parcels to create
a municipal campus so that firehouse construction could expand beyond its designated
property lines.

Mayor Griffith brought completed survey maps of the four parcels of land. The attending
members of the board reviewed these maps. Lisa Schwarzbaum said there needs to be
a public hearing to move the lot consolidation through.

Donna Matthews underlined that it is important the firehouse gets what it needs to serve
the community. Lisa Schwarzbaum agreed, emphasizing the need to follow planning
and building protocol so that the board can support the firehouse’s plan to expand and
increase its resource capabilities.

At 7:19, Lisa Schwarzbaum made a motion to conclude the meeting. This motion was
followed by Wendy Hansen and seconded by J.P. Ward.

Submitted,

 

Lucinda Standerfer

Planning Secretary
