OLD BUSINESS:

 

PB-12-09 Napora County Line Road Two-lot realty subdivision & residential site plans Preliminary & final This proposal is for the split of a 4+ acre parcel into two (2) equal lots with a house on each. As recommended at sketch approval, the driveway easement was widened by 5 ft. and the driveway flared at the road to allow vehicles to pass each other. The house elevations have been raised, and water, septic, construction notes and storm water details have been added to the plan. It was noted that a drain line to the pond crosses the common property boundary. Board members felt this drain should go straight to the pond on the same parcel or a drainage easement should be obtained between the two parcels. Mr. Carini agreed to redesign the line to be entirely on the same lot. Drainage out of the pond will be along the existing drainage pattern; large quantities of water are not expected. Street trees were not shown on the final plan, but will be addressed when issuing building permits.

 

A motion for negative SEQR declaration was made by Kevin Rooney, seconded by Suzanne Airy. All in favor; motion carried. A motion to grant preliminary & final approval for a two-lot subdivision and residential site plans was made by Kevin Rooney, seconded by Suzanne Airy. All in favor; motion carried.

 

PB-13-09 Turk (Hilton) Walworth Road One-lot realty subdivision & residential site plan Preliminary & final Mike Sponable, John A. Greene & Associates, reviewed this application. A 1.8 acre parcel is being subdivided from 57+ acres on the northwest corner of Walworth & Barnes Roads. This is area is not included in the Hilton farmland conservation easement. Mr. Sponable clarified the need for a curtain drain around the septic system. It was added as a result of mineral deposits discovered at 48 in the deep hole. Town Engineer Scott Allen had no engineering comments regarding the application. Member Tom Morrison recused himself from discussion and/or voting on this piece of business.

 

A motion for negative SEQR declaration was made by Mark McEwen, seconded by Kevin Rooney. All in favor (Morrison recused); motion carried. A motion to grant preliminary/final approval for this one-lot subdivision and residential site plan was made by Mark McEwen, seconded by Kevin Rooney. All in favor (Morrison recused); motion carried.
