Old Business:

Approval of December 20, 2004 Minutes:

Fran Dellamano stated that he had volunteered to be on the committee for the Town Board regarding changes to the Zoning Ordinance, and it was not stated in the minutes. He wondered why the Secretary missed including it in the Minutes. Judy Watson said perhaps he had volunteered after the meeting was already adjourned. Fran Dellamano made a motion that we approve the minutes with the one change. Ken Kern seconded the motion. All ayes. Motion carried.

Empire Fresh Cuts, LLC Amendment:

Judy Watson signed the Amendment, and the secretary is to send Empire Fresh Cuts a signed copy, as well as distribute copies to Theresa Cooper, Town Clerk, as well as the Code Enforcement Officer.

New Business:

Shawn Regan appeared at the meeting on behalf of his mother and father, James and Carol Regan, who own a development called Silver Lakes Estates West, with a proposal to gain access to a barn by moving stakes in the driveway. Shawn stated there is a gravel road leading to the barn. The entrance to the South needs to be pushed a little more. He does not want to disturb the size of the lots on either side.

At that point, Steve Greene, Attorney for the Board stated he could not get involved with the discussion, or give advice, as his father, Stephen Greene, Sr. represents James and Carol Regan.

Fran Dellamano said a lot of work needs to be done, such as changing the map, a lot of paper work, and the County must get involved. The County will have to look at it, and take out the old subdivision and put a new subdivision in there. We may have to make a new plat. We have to get all this done so there is not a mix up later on. It is a change to the original subdivision.

There was much discussion, and the members looked over the original plan, as well as the map showing the change in moving the pins at the end of the driveway. A reference was shown - "Map of Silver Lakes Estates West, prepared by Russell L. Getman, Licensed Land Surveyor on January 12, 1994, filed in the Oswego County Clerk's Office in Plat 15 at Line 140î and "Map of Silver Lake Estates West, Section Two by Russell L. Getman dated August 17, 2001."

Shawn Regan said he would like it done as soon as possible. Fran Dellamano stated it is a paper trail, and hopefully if Shawn gets all the paper work to us, and to the County, everything should be done within a month. Ken Kern stated we should find out from the County as to the second phase of the development which was done in 2001. Steve Greene said we have to complete a 239 Referral.

Ken Kern made a motion that we would approve the change in the second phase of Silver Lakes Estates West, after we send a Referral #239 application to the County Planning Board for consideration. Barry Pritchard seconded the Motion. All ayes. Motion carried.

Set Meeting Dates and Time for Year 2005:

Judy Watson went over the list of meeting dates that the secretary set up, and wondered if the meetings that land on holidays was an issue. All members agreed to keep the meeting dates as set. Judy Watson said the beginning of the year is also the time to appoint a Chairman. All members agreed that Judy Watson take chairmanship for another year.

Judy said she would serve for another year.

Public Comment:


Open Board Discussion:

Judy Watson brought up the subject of our Alternate Member, Robert Smith. We have not seen or heard from him since the January 2004 meeting. Judy instructed the secretary to write him a letter, as to his interests of continuing to serve on the Board as an Alternate Member.

Judy questioned the trailer behind the new diner on Route 104 and Johnson Road. Barry Pritchard said he brought it up at the Town Board Meeting, and no one seems to know. He said the people ran the diner in Hannibal, and run it in out town now. They brought the mobile home along with them, and no one seems to know what it is for.


At approximately 7:45 PM, Lee Phillips moved to adjourn the meeting. Barry Pritchard seconded the Motion. All ayes. Motion carried.

Respectfully submitted,
