Project Summary

Applicant proposes continuation of operation of a Class A Marina of the berthing of three (3) vessels located at 167 Assembly Point Road (239.7-1-32).  The project is located in the Waterfront Residential District and is designated as Moderate Intensity on the Adirondack Park Land Use and Development Map.  The property has existed as a Class A Marina renting 2 slips since 1984 by the applicant's aunt.  Bathroom facilities were provided in the existing dwelling on the property.  The applicant proposes to increase the number of rental slips from 2 to 3.  The project required a Special Use Permit from the Town of Queensbury Planning Board and a Marina Permit from the Lake George Park Commission.

Waterkeeper Perspective

The Waterkeeper expressed concern about the need to evaluate and certify the existing onsite wastewater treatment system and provide stormwater management for the existing impervious cover.

Waterkeeper Comments

See comment letters to the Town of Queensbury Planning Board March 2012.

Next Meeting

The Town of Queensbury Planning Board meeting on March 27, 2012 discussed the application.  The Planning Board inquired about the onsite wastewater treatment system and determined there would be no increase in use and therefore was acceptable.  The Planning Board granted the Special Use Permit.  The Lake George Park Commission reviewed the Marina Permit at the April 24, 2012 meeting.  The LGPC inquired about the OWTS since no evaluation was submitted with the application.  The applicant stated it was serviced in the past year and some repairs were made.  LGPC expressed concern about the increase in the number of rental slips and potential impacts in a residential district.  The LGPC granted the Marina Permit with conditions:  1) Limit the number of rental slips to 2; 2) Hours of operation 6am-9pm; and, 3) Inspect and certify the OWTS.
