Project Summary

The applicant proposes an addition to an existing dwelling located at 2164 Black Point Road (1.18-1-15).  The addition will include a three season screened porch.  The addition will have a 71 foot setback to the shoreline.  The dwelling is currently connected to the Black Point Road Sewer District.  There is no stormwater management evident at the site.  There are four large trees to the west of the dwelling that stabilize a bank with a landscape tie wall.  It was not clear if these trees would be removed or the disturbance that would occur to the bank.  At the November 2010 Planning Board meeting, the applicant claims there are two rain pits proposed on the site plan, which should be clarified.

Waterkeeper Perspective

The Waterkeeper recommends the installation of stormwater management and details on the stabilization of the bank to the west of the dwelling/addition, especially if trees are going to be removed.

Waterkeeper Comments

Please refer to the Lake George Waterkeeper comment letter to the Town of Putnam Planning Board, November 2010.

Next Meeting

The Town of Putnam Planning Board will review the application at their November 10, 2010 Planning Board meeting.  At the November 2010 meeting, the Planning Board deemed the project to be a Type I but did not decide if a public hearing would be set.  The Planning Board tabled the application pending the submission of the following information:  Stormwater management plan; contacting the neighbors regarding the project; and APA non jurisdictional letter.  The item was removed from the agenda of the December 8, 2010 Planning Board meeting at the request of the applicant.  At the February 9, 2011 meeting, the Putnam Planning Board reviewed the proposed site plan.  The applicant submitted a nonjurisidictional letter from the APA.  The Planning Board suggested additional stone around the proposed “gutter sumps”/dry wells.  Site Plan was approved based on Waterkeeper comments, 7-0.
