Varick Planning Board
July 26, 2019
Meeting called to order at 7:00 p.m.
Present: Hershey Sensenig, Michelle Hermann, Rich Olsen (acting secretary), Frankie Long
Absent: Linda Mastellar (chair), Thomas Björkman (Secretary), one vacancy
Visitors: Dr. Peter Gregoire
Gregoire subdivision. Landowners: James Peter and Patricia Gregoire.
Accepted a survey map to subdivide the property on 5368 State route 89 (Rt. 89 and Ernsberger Road), Tax map lot 15-1-06.2. The board accepted the survey map for a subdivision of lot 15-1-06.2. The proposal is to turn the lot, currently 2.39 acres into two lots, Parcel A, 1.1 acres; Parcel B 1.29 acres. That change is compliant with the current subdivision code, and is viewed favorably by the board. The applicant provided the town subdivision application and application fee.
The board received the short Environmental Assessment Form and declared itself the lead agency for State Environmental Quality Review. Upon review of the EAF, the board found no impact because the action will lead to no change in land use, nor creates a condition that would encourage one. The board makes a negative declaration of environmental impact.
The board reviewed an application submitted by the Gregoires' who supplied an agricultural data statement. The board finds that there will be no impact on adjoining agricultural uses because the land use will not change.
The documents were complete except we noted that question number 9 was left blank, as Mr. Gregoire was not sure what the NYS energy code is so we can proceed.
The action transfers 1.29 acres of Lot 15-1-06.2 to a new lot number to be determined by Seneca County.
We will forward the application to the county and schedule a public hearing for August 22, 2019.
We classified it as a Minor Subdivision.
Moved by Sensenig, Seconded by Long, passed 4-0.
A motion by Hermann, seconded by Sensenig and so carried unanimously to adjourn the meeting at 7:57 p.m.
