Project Summary

The applicant proposes to alter a pre-existing noncomforming single family dwelling located at 2 Fish Point Road (200.07-1-20).  The property is located in the RM1.3 Zoning District and is designated as Moderate Intensity Use on the Adirondack Park Land Use and Development Plan Map.  The applicant requests the following variances:  1) shoreline setback - 75' required, 31.1' proposed; 2) Side yard setback - 20' required, 18.8' proposed; and 3) To alter a non-conforming structure.  The existing dwelling is a single story dwelling with a detached garage.  The project proposes to construct the new dwelling within the existing footprint and not increase the existing conformities.  The building will be expanded vertically with a second floor and expand in the rear of the dwelling with a single story.  The application proposed to reduce impervious cover by removing the existing garage and portions of the existing driveway.  The applicant is proposing a new onsite wastewater treatment system set over 200' from the lake.  

Waterkeeper Perspective

The Waterkeeper was not opposed to the variance and recognized the reduction in impervious cover, which would benefit water quality.  The Waterkeeper recommends stormwater management through rain gardens and Site Plan Review by the Planning Board.
