Those in attendance were:
Approval of December 18, 2006 Minutes:
Jim Finn made a motion to approve the December 18, 2006 minutes, after a correction was made under New Business, first line, a typo - Dan Shaver's name was missing the "r" In his last name. Jeff Boyer seconded the motion. All ayes. Motion carried.
Application #2006-10 Daniel Shaver - Special Permit - New Business - Continuation of Public Hearing:
Since Mr. Shaver's documentation was in order, Fran Dellamano made a motion that the application be granted. Jim Finn seconded the motion. All ayes. Motion carried.
Judy Watson had received a call from Don Neels in regard to his daughter building a home. Judy asked him to attend the meeting so any questions could be answered. Don did attend the meeting. He is contemplating giving his daughter a piece of land to build a home between Thompson Road and Johnson Road. The property would be on the Johnson Road side. He stated he doesn't have road frontage, but has a 60 foot right of way between two existing homes. After much discussion, the Board Members told him he would have to file an application, and have a survey done, showing where the home will be, as well as septic, water lines and electric lines. Don had a rough map showing where the home would be. He stated he did not ant to get into subdivisions.
Fran Dellamano quote from the Town of Oswego Subdivision Regulations:
"Subdivision - (1) The division of any parcel or parcels of land whether or not contiguous, into four or more lots, plots, sites, or other division of land each being fewer than five acres.
(2) The division of a parcel of land into two or more lots where one or more of the lots lacks existing road frontage. The five (5) or more acre exclusion from these regulations applies only to lots within a minimum of three hundred (300) feet frontage on an existing road."
Fran thought there was something in the Regulations referring to Minor Subdivisions, but could not find anything. Fran stated the Board wants to work with Mr. Neels in making sure all the documents are filed with the application.
No one present, with the except of Don Neels who had questions and comments.
Open Board Discussion:
Judy asked the members to look over the meeting dates for the year 2007. The members had no comments.
Judy stated she would remain on the Planning Board, and would continue to work with the Zoning Regulations, but wants to resign as Chairman. Jim Finn nominated Jeffrey Boyer as Chairman. Judy seconded the nomination. Jeff accepted the nomination and was voted Chairman. All ayes. Nomination carried.
At approximately 7:55, Jim Finn made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Lee Phillips seconded the motion. All ayes. Motion carried.
