Project Summary

The applicant proposes to demolish and rebuild an 85 year old log cabin on the lake shore located at28 Sweet Briar Lane (186.10-1-9). The property is located in the RM1.3 Zoning District and designated Moderate Intensity as per the Adirondack Park Land Use and Development Plan. The existing cabin is in disrepair and is claimed to be a hazard and potentially will collapse into the lake.  The proposed project will not expand the existing footprint.  The structure extends over the lake and will be supported by crib construction, whch will not be cotinuous.  The applicant claims there is no aea outsidde the 75' setback to construct the cabin due to the presence of APA wetlands.  The applicant spoke with dock contractors who estimated 27 pilings would be required to support the structure, which would be more impact than crib construction.  No permit was required from the Lake George Park Commission. 

Waterkeeper Perspective

The Waterkeeper was not opposed to the application but suggested an alternative construction from crib construction and recommended inquired whether a permit from the LGPC was required.
