Project Summary
The applicant proposes to the construction of a 2,074 sf accessory structure (pavilion) at 3841 Lake Shore Drive (213.7-1-9). The property is in the RCM1.3 Zoning District and is designated Low Intensity Use on the Adirondack Park Land Use and Development Map. Site Plan Review is required for the construction of an accessory structure greater than 1,500 sf.

Waterkeeper Perspective

The Waterkeeper has concerns about the piecemeal development of the property and the need for a comprehensive review (the applicant recently received a variance for the construction of a pool and accessory building); stormwater management plans should be prepared for the proposed structure as well as for other impervious cover onsite and the parking plan should be reevaluated based on site conditions.
