OLD BUSINESS:

 

PB-05-16 Izzo/Premier Retail 1635 Commons Parkway Commercial site plan & one-lot realty subdivision Preliminary & final Don Lewis of AEY Engineering addressed the Board. He explained that Premier Retail is one of two entities that work out of the Izzo Golf building. They would like to build ten (10) self-storage units to the north of the existing building as a second phase of their business. Since the time of sketch plan approval, the buildings have been turned 90 on the site plan with ten (10) buildings of 4,000 sq. ft. each instead of eight (8) buildings of 5,000 sq. ft. each. Access will be from Commons Parkway. The stormwater pond will be constructed to meet the requirements for the first phase (2 buildings) and expanded as future phases are built. Some water will be directed south in front of the Izzo building, and easements would be required if subdivision is done. Site plan has been designed to meet all required setbacks for a separate parcel. The site plan will need to be revised to include: Fencing, lighting, stormwater easements on west side, looping of water main & phasing details. Also, the question of two uses vs. subdivision will need to be clarified.
