Project Summary

The applicant proposes renovations to an existing camp constructed in 1911 at 153 Moosewood Way in Glenburnie.  The applicant is proposing to extend the roofline and add a bedroom.  The Town of Putnam Planning Board requested a Site Plan review and the applicant stated the expansion was below 25% and therefore, did not require Site Plan Review.      

Waterkeeper Perspective

The Waterkeeper has concerns regarding the need for an evaluation of the existing on-site wastewater treatment system and the ability to accommodate an additional bedroom.  The Waterkeeper also recommended the implementation of stormwater management.

Waterkeeper Comments

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

Next Meeting

At the January 13, 2010 meeting, the Town of Putnam Planning Board passed a resolution the project could proceed without a Site Plan review.  However, the Code Enforcement Officer would need to approve the OWTS prior to the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy.  At the August 11, 2010 Planning Board meeting, the Planning Board authorized sending a letter Harding requesting a copy of the Certificate of Occupancy and the certification of the septic system for four bedrooms since the dwelling has been occupied over the summer.  At the October 13, 2010 Planning Board meeting, the Board discussed the continued failure of the applicant to provide the adequate certification on the septic system.  The applicant proposed in August 2010 to remove a wall on the den and then the number of bedrooms would remain the same.  The Planning Board decided to send a letter to the applicant reaffirming their resolution requiring a certification of the septic system.
