Planning Board Minutes

April 26, 2007

The meeting began with an affirmation of the Open Public Meetings Act requirements and the Pledge of Allegiance.  The Minutes from March 22, 2007 were approved.  Approval was given to pay the Recording Secretary and the Board Attorney.

Roll Call:  Present:  Mr. Cirillo, Mr. Michitsch, Mr. Beninati, Mr. David, Mr. DeLuca, Mr. Soos, Mr. O’Malley, Mr. Schielke, Mr. Dick, and Mr. Mancino.  Absent:  Mr. Peters, Mr. Corcione, and Mr. Pantina.

Communications:  Mr. Beninati reported Mr. Bamber (application #4-07), sent out notification to all area residents within 200’ of their property.  However, the newspaper notice was a day late.  Therefore, this applicant requested a postponement until the May 24 meeting.  A vote was taken, and the Board will allow this application be delayed until May; it does not need additional resident notification, but must be re-published.

Another communications report concerned the PMK Group, regarding the storm water run-off.  A package was given to all Board members to be reviewed and voted on at the May meeting, but notice must be sent out to the Public and to the County Planning Board.

A twenty-day notice will be necessary.   

Mr. Beninati is waiting for an escrow check from Our Little World Day Care Center before it can be scheduled for a Board meeting.  Also, Mr. Pugliese (application #3-07) responded to the Secretary for comments.

Resolutions:  Application #07-01, Tome, 321 N. 22nd Street, Block 19, Lot 15, a Minor sub-division.  Mr. Soos made a motion to approve this resolution, 2nd by Mr. O’Malley.  All in favor:  Mr. David, Mr. DeLuca, Mr. Beninati, Mr. Soos, Mr. Corcione, Mr. O’Malley, Mr. Pantina, Mr. Dick, and Mr. Cirillo.

Application #1-07, Carvalho and Moralis, 249 Faitoute Avenue, Block 148, Lot 9, a variance for an addition/ existing non-conforming front and side setbacks.  A motion to approve this resolution was made by Mr. David, 2nd by Mr. Dick.  All in favor:  Mr. David, Mr. DeLuca, Mr. Beininati, Mr. O’Malley, Mr. Dick, and Mr. Cirillo.

New Business:  (Note:  A brief recess was taken.  Mr. Lane said the affidavit of public notice form incorrectly states the meeting starts at 8:00.  This form needs to reflect the correct starting time of 7:30 p.m. in the future.) 

Application #2-07, Fernandes, 46 South 19th Street, Block 114, Lot 8, variance on a rear-yard setback for an addition.  Sworn in: Mr. Fernandes.  He wants a rear addition for a larger kitchen.  The pre-existing, non-conforming side setback is 4’6”, which will not be increased.  Mr. David said the Board should be informed about all setbacks, and these should be added onto the architects’ plans.
