                                                     - Dennis Lynch                       - Day Engineering

Steve Tinkelman, representative of Jackson Crossing, LLC presented a new site plan design to the board. He said he would like to get some feedback on what the board thinks of the two plans and to try to build some consensus so that they could move forward with the plan design. It was a suggestion by the board that they talk to John Clark of Dutchess County Planning which they did and as a result moved two of the buildings on to Jackson Street. Also, as a result of discussions between the planning departments other minor changes have been made and you are seeing a different version of the site plan tonight. The number of units will remain the same at 26 and the plan still involves maintaining the existing house on Jackson and the brick building known as the Carriage House.

After a lengthy discussion with the applicant on the proposed site plans Chairman Klingzahn announced that the consensus was that plan O4 would be the plan that the board would be working with.

The board also discussed the architectural design of the buildings and provided suggested designs to the applicants.

The next review of the project will be scheduled for the next Planning Board meeting to be held on April 17th.


3. Hudson Valley FCU           - 6 Schuyler Blvd                      - Site Plan Application

    Applicant:                           - Roger Keating                        - Chazen Company

                                                 - Jay Mauri                                - Mauri Architects, Inc

Roger Keating, authorized representative presented an overall  site plan presentation of the project.

Jay Mauri, architect for the project gave a presentation of the proposed 5300 square foot, one story building to be constructed on the site.

Victoria Polidoro, Planning Board Attorney said that the applicants would need to go to the Village Board to submit a petition for rezoning. Basically, banking is not a permitted use in this district. It seems to be unintentional, the comprehensive plan calls for this zone to be a commercial highway corridor and this is a commercial highway building. Victoria covered the process on handling this rezoning and documented it to the Planning Board. (memo on file)

Chairman Klingzahn said that the application would be scheduled for a future Planning Board meeting after the Village Board has reviewed and acted on the proposed zoning law change.


Victoria Poldoro reviewed two demolition laws that was referred from the Monday night Village Board meeting. (memo on file)

Cris Phillips makes a motion to recommend  adoption of proposed  laws Bills A-2014 and B-2014.
