The Waterkeeper has concerns about the lack of stormwater management included on the proposed impervious parking area, the continued segmented submissions and use expansion, need for a comprehensive plan and consideration of turf pavers for parking areas.
The application was scheduled for a public hearing at the October 18, 2012 meeting of the Town of Bolton Planning Board. At the meeting, there was concern expressed by the Diamond Ridge subdivision about the expansion of the commercial use onto one of the subdivision lots, which violated the subdivision covenants, and failure to comply with the approved parking plan by parking on the private road. Concerns were also expressed about the hours and noise of the facility. The applicant decided to remove the application and resubmit a complete plan for review by the Planning Board. JANUARY 2013 - The applicant submitted a complete site plan with 2 options for parking, one with a minimum number of spaces and one with an additional 13 spaces and a driveway around the north of the house. The application was heard by the Town of Bolton Planning Board at the January 17, 2013 meeting. The Planning Board scheduled a public hearing for the application at the February 21, 2013 meeting and requested additional information for the stormwater management plan and existing onsite wastewater treatment system.
SPR11-28 - The Zoning Administrator determined the applicant required Site Plan Review to amend SPR00-28 approved in October 2000 for a bed and breakfast to accommodate proposed revisions consisting of adding one bedroom and large gatherings/events for up to 125 people 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. No information was included in the Site Plan Review application regarding stormwater management, wastewater treatment or parking.
The Waterkeeper has concerns about the potential increase of use on the property and recommended the submission of a wastewater facility plan, a detailed stormwater management plan for the property and a detailed parking plan.
