Eric Neiler of Tinkelman Architects presented the proposed architectural design of the buildings.

Steve Tinkelman addressed many of the significant changes made to the site plan.

Sarah Brown, Village Planner covered her comment letter (on file) on the project.

Jaime McNiff, Village Engineering representative reviewed the engineering comments (on file).

Brandon Knapp, Protection Engine Fire Dept reviewed the turning radius for the fire engines on the site plan which appeared to be satisfactory however there were still a couple of open items.

Chairman Klingzahn said there were a number of open items on the project and a public hearing could not be set up until the consultants and board received answers.

The next review of the project will be scheduled for the next Planning Board meeting to be held on May 15, 2014.


Chairman Klingzahn announced that the Hudson Valley FCU would not be on the agenda tonight and will be rescheduled to the next meeting on May 15, 2014.

Victoria Polidoro, Planning Board Attorney said that the Village Board understands that banking is not a permitted use in the PI District and that this is a mistake and they would like to correct it. Normally, the practice is when there is a zoning amendment it is referred to the planning board for review and comment.

Bea Lindsay makes a motion to recommend to the Village Board to amend the Zoning Law to include financial institutions in the PI District and waive referral to the Plannign Board under 171-166. Motion seconded by Cris Phillips. Votes for: 5 Votes against: 0 Motion carried.
