  1. Open Development Area

 

Supervisor Nellis stated that a memo was received from Andrew Reilly, Town

Engineer regarding a request to build a single family home on a landlocked parcel, approximately 10 acres, off of Route 62 in the Town of Eden.  This parcel previously had a house on it that has been torn down in the last few years.  The owner of this landlocked parcel also owns a property in front of this parcel that does have frontage on Route 62.

 

            By the code of the Town of Eden, the landlocked parcel cannot be built upon because the owner owns an adjoining lot that this parcel could be combined with to form a conforming lot.

 

            Mr. Reilly offered the suggestion for the Town to declare this an Open Development Area under Article 280 A of Town Law and allow the back lot to be built upon and have access to Route 62 through an easement across the other lot.  A condition of this Open Development Area would be that a maximum of one home per lot be constructed.  A drawing of the site would be needed and then the Town Board would need to set a public hearing on forming an Open Development Area.

 

MOTION was made by Councilman Zittel to declare this an Open Development Area and schedule a Public Hearing for May 28, 2003 @ 8:00 P.M. in the Eden Town Hall; seconded by Councilwoman Pew; All “Ayes”; Opposed? – None; Abstain? – None; Motion carried.
