The move will square up the lot line by moving it 12.5 feet at rear of the lot, and 0 ft at the road, for approximately 250 ft. The resulting lots will be ~168 ft and ~112 ft in the rear. The applicant provided a SEQR EAF. Will determine whether AgData Statement is needed. Signature of owners of both properties is needed.

Discussed potential future subdivision of the larger Backlund parcel, potentially as a cluster subdivision. The current subdivision would be included in a determination of whether a future subdivision is minor or major.
Noise ordinance postcard. Was discussed at Town Board. They may consider at the next meeting, and possibly combine with Dog ordinance. Björkman will send proposed copy to Donna Karlsen for action.
Dryden’s 2020 code is relatively short, under 2 pages. In contrast, Fayette’s is 12 pages.
Canandaigua has three strikes to pull the permit where Fayette has just one.
An effective fine for renting without a permit must be higher than the rental income.
Other towns have found it useful to restrict the number of people per bedroom or total.
