St. Paul’s Episcopal Church
Mr. Furtado attended the meeting this evening to discuss the renovations that are planned for St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at 204 W Genesee Street for the outside stairway and the rear of the structure. The stair structure is failing and need to be replaced for safety. This is the only access to the second floor of the Church. The replacement stairway will be within the same footprint as exists currently. The Church structure is currently in a non-conforming situation with the existing setbacks and Counsel Bell stated the proposed renovation would be allowed as it is staying within the same footprint and not creating a further non-conforming setback. No new lighting is proposed, but Mr. Furtado did say that there will be a window added in the structure to allow more light into the enclosed stairway. The Board discussed the information presented. They reviewed the short form EAF presented with the plans. Upon the motion made by Scott Pellman, seconded by Bob Lake, the Board determines this to be an unlisted action for purposes of SEQR with no significant environmental impact. All members present voting in favor. The Board discussed the proposed plan from Thomas J. DiTullio, Architect entitled Second Floor Stair Replacement Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church 204 W Genesee Street Chittenango dated 11/20/17 noted as job #1727. Upon the motion made by Scott Pellman, seconded by Joyce Newkirk, the Planning Board approves the plan for renovation of the stair way for St. Paul’s Episcopal Church as noted above noting that the renovation will stay within the same footprint as the existing stairway. All members present voting in favor.
Boundary Modification Request – Geer - 106 and 108 Jill Street
Jeff Geer appeared before the Board this evening to discuss his request for a boundary modification. Mr. Geer recently acquired the property located at 108 Jill Street for Sarah Eddy. Ms. Eddy’s home was destroyed by fire a couple of years ago, but a small garage remains on the premises. Mr. Geer is requesting a boundary modification to combine the two lots that he now owns at 106 (which is his current residence) and 108 Jill Street which is the adjacent lot next door. His plan at this time is to combine the two lots into one and to perhaps in the future connect the garage to his existing home. He has contacted the Town of Sullivan for future permits, as he is the Village Code Officer and can’t issue himself a permit. The total square footage of the combined properties will be approximately .364 acres and will be used for residential. The Board discussed the request. Upon the motion made by Andy Jones, seconded by Joyce Newkirk, the Board determined this to be an unlisted action for purposes of SEQR with a negative declaration having no significant impact on the environment. All members present voting in favor. The Board discussed the request of Jeff Geer based on plan prepared by Seguin Land Surveying PLLC dated 10/10/17 for project 17146 tax map 41.80-1-53 and 41.80-1-54 for boundary modification for 106 and 108 Jill Street (Lots 42 & 43 Lake Street home sites). Upon the motion made by Joyce Newkirk, seconded by Scott Pellman, boundary modification request of Jeff Geer for 106 & 108 Jill Street approved based on information submitted as noted above. All members present voting in favor. Mr. Geer will need to have Mylar prepared along with copies for the Board Chairman to sign and have a deed prepared by his attorney and file the information with the Madison County Clerk once the plans have been signed by the Village.
