2_John & Paula Decker, Unadilla, NY
Came before the Planning Board to seek approval to start a sub-division process of the property at the South East corner of County Route 27 and State Route 206 that is currently occupied by a store and red frame house.
A discussion took place as to the economic interest of doing this and how it might benefit the town.
It was reasoned that there is not enough road frontage nor property to allow a subdivision of the property. The lot that they are asking to be sub-divided is ¼ acre and much too small. Regulations call for a 1 acre parcel minimum.
It was the opinion of the Planning Board that a subdivision would not be feasible especially in view of the possibility that after purchase, should the current occupancy burn down, the future owner might want to erect a home on the substandard plot of land.
It was the further opinion of the Planning Board that permission for a subdivision (in the future) would be withheld.
3_Michael Spaccaforno, Masonville, NY
Is interested in the purchase of approximately 2.95 acres on Higley Spur from the owner Mr. Kessler on behalf of his daughter to erect a modular home.
Before Mr. Spaccaforno pursues this matter further he wanted assurance that there would not be a problem with subdivision of the property.
A discussion ensued concerning road frontage and other pertinent facts.
It was decided that it was OK for Mr. Spaccaforno to begin work for development of this property.
With nothing further to come before the Planning Board, adjournment of the October meeting was made by Paul Bartholomew. The meeting adjourned at 8:15 pm.
