Project Summary

The applicant has constructed a second story addition without receiving site plan review approval at 2437 Black Point Road (4-1-41).  The existing dwelling has portions with three stories and two stories.  The property is connected to the Black Point Road Sewer District.  There does not appear to be any stormwater management.  There is substantial alteration to the shoreline and all vegetation has been removed.  The shoreline is built up with gabion walls.  At the November 2010 meeting, the applicant stated they had a building permit, followed the process and did not need a site plan review.  The applicant expressed concern about the recommendations of the Waterkeeper.

Waterkeeper Perspective

The Waterkeeper has concerns about the complete lack of a shoreline buffer and no apparent stormwater management on the site for the house or the parking area that is located on the shoreline.

Waterkeeper Comments

See Lake George Waterkeeper comment letter to Town of Putnam Planning Board November 2010.

Next Meeting

The Town of Putnam Planning Board sent a letter to the applicant informing them of the need for a site plan review for the addition.  The Town of Putnam Planning Board will review the application at their November 10, 2010 meeting.  At the November 2010 meeting, the Planning Board determined site plan review was not required but requested the submission of a site plan for the process.  The Board recommended the applicant to install stormwater management measures to treat stormwater before it enters the lake.
