City Of Saratoga Springs Planning Board SummaryWritten by staff Report
SARATOGA SPRINGS – Three items were on the agenda for the City of Saratoga Springs planning board meeting January 22. West Avenue Residential Condominiums The first two items on the agenda for the planning board meeting held on January 21 included applications for a special use permit for residential use and a site plan review of the residential buildings at 426 West Avenue. Both inquiries were previously approved in 2011 but had expired when the applicant failed to extend the approval. The planning board treated each item as a new application. The same project was approved with the exception of additional screening along the property line. The site is a one acre lot with a small unoccupied single family residential home and 16 condo units are planned at 29,000 square feet. The site was first presented to the planning board May 22, 2008 and was reaffirmed on December 7, 2011 for the 16 residential units however the project was halted. The project was put on hold because of economic reasons. As a result of this meeting, additional trees are required on the property line. The trees are required to be six to eight feet in height. The order was made in order to enhance the buffer area around the boundary. Also on the site is an additional structure in disrepair. The board asked that it be demolished 45 days from the planning board’s approval. Weibel Avenue Property Owner Seeks Special Permit For Medical, Retail, Office Space Third on the agenda was at 75 Weibel Avenue. Property owner Tara Stone was seeking a special permit for a medical, retail and office space, but additional material was requested. The additional material was to be sent to the planning board’s engineer in order to review and determine the water and sanitary needs of the site. The planning board requested that the document be sent with time for the engineer to review. Afterward, Stone will reappear to the board for review. The next planning board meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, February 12 at 7 p.m. The agenda for the next meeting will be published Friday.
