Old Business – none
Jeff – Daniel Dorsey has proposed a change in the Great Lakes Recycling business on Gardenier Rd. Will represent at the Public Hearing scheduled for June 29, 2009 at 7:10PM
Dan Dorsey – mistake on their part originally. Moved their recycling from 5th Street to the Gardenier Rd. property making it a redemption and retail center (soda, ice, propane exchange). Will not be a convenience store, not a full-fledged store.
Jeff – the Board will need to see the Site Map.
Francis Dellamano – what is the fire code pertaining to propane?
Dan Dorsey – supplier said it only needs to be secure in a cage.
Jeff – revised map should show traffic pattern, signage, ingress and egress, parking.
Judy – hours of operation?
Dan Dorsey – 9:00AM – 4:00PM, Monday-Friday; 9:00AM - 2:00PM, Saturday. They have an permit for the sign.
Pat Jung – part owner of property on Cemetery Road totally 53 acres. Would like to divide the property into 4 lots with road frontage, two of which would be less than 5 acres, 2 acres over 5 acres.
Francis Dellamano – anything under 5 acres is considered a “subdivision.” Must have 4 lots under five acres to be “subdivision.”
Francis Dellamano – back to United Group. Before final report Barton & Logjudice should present their findings to the Planning Board for comment.
Judy Sabin-Watson – she has received a letter from “Concerned Citizens of Oswego Town” concerning the proposed expansion of 104W from Johnson Road to 104A. They are concerned about taking considerable road frontage away from residences and businesses in this area. Already an expansion on 104E from Scriba to Mexico.
Greg Herrmann – has been working with the DOT on this expansion. Eight foot is a ballpark number. In April aerial photos were taken. August timeframe for public comment. Primarily a safety project to straighten Perry Hill, intersections, etc. Studies going back 15 years on accidents in the area. Survey work will be completed first. On going maintenance has been a problem because of the concrete underneath. Project penciled in for 2011.
Barry Pritchard – Hannah’s is putting up a significant new sign. Approximately 6 x 6.
Jeff will check with Wayne Newton concerning this.
