Old Schuylerville Rd. (Off Rte, 29) Schuylerville . Town of Saratoga Schuylerville Drainage problem needs to be resolved M a il Items to: Kathleen Bartholomay 5288 Cty Rte. 113,Greenwich, N.Y. 12834 Phone €95-4734 FAX: 692-2589 /Veii>s items may be left at Byron's ICA. b y K a th le e n B a r t h o lo m a y The town of Saratoga Zoning Board of Appeals met April 24 and much dis­ cussioni between two neighbors and the board preceded approval o f a front set­ back variance for developer and town resident Jane Sheeran. Mrs. Sheeran is building a house at 3 Elizabeth Lane, off Hayes Road. She required the vari­ ance as the home was built 79 feet from the road and regulations require 90 feet. Residents in attendance have been re­ questing assistance from the town since early Jebruary, but the zoning board stated they were unable to provide any sort of assistance. The neighbors were requesting any variance that is granted stipulate that no Certificate of Occu­ pancy would be granted if an alleged drainage problem at the new home site is not resolved. The neighbors assert that a wetland type of area behind the newly con­ structed home was drained into their yards, and that a trench was dug across one corner of an attending neighbor's land, slicing off telephone and cable lines. “No permission was ever granted according to this neighbor, but Mrs. Sheeran maintained she did not trespass. One: neighbor's property has a town easement running through it and this easennertt is now filled with water. She inaintaires that ‘her title allows this ease­ ment contingent on the property own­ ers' right to enjoy the property at no expense to that owner. She. also states sne caainot travel from one part of her yard tea thè other without going out into Elizabeth Lane to circumvent the water in her yard. She states that the easement owned by the town involves the town in the drainage problem, as the easement is for the purpose of drainage. The neighbors plan to attend the Town Planning Board meeting on Tuesday evening o f this week and have been to every town board meeting this^ month seeking assistance. Bob Hathaway, Zoning Officer, stated he would make sure any \drainage prob­ lems were resolved prior to issuing a Certificate of Occupancy and Supervi­ sor Bob Hall stated he did not believe it was a town problem but would fill the town's easement with stone if he needs to. The neighbors requested these state­ ments in writing but were not provided with the documents. The clerk o f the board stated that the engineering requirements for drainage in the subdivision, as specified before the Town Planning Board, had evi­ dently not been followed. Resolution of the problem and what may be entailed remains unknown but Mrs. Sheeran re­ quested any changes be inexpensive. The board approved the replacement of a mobile home. Edward and Tammy V/urz will replace a singlewide mobile home with a doublewide at their 127 Russell Road location. The singlewide will be sold or disposed of following placement and hook-up of the double- wide. Stephan Bodnar, zoning board member, abstained from the vote, as he is their neighbor. David Lord of 12 4 1 Route 9P, was allowed to add a 454 foot wide by 2 7 foot extension on his existing lakeside home in order to have room for a set of stairs to reach the sleeping loft or sec­ ond story and increase the size of the first floor bath. The board tabled a variance for Lee Bombard of 1382 Route 9P until fur­ ther information and drawings can be obtained. Mr. Bombard requested the addition of a garage for his undersized lot that would have a second story with plumbing. He has contacted one of the two adjoining property owners. Mr. Bombard has insufficient road frontage and both side lots are less than is re­ quired according to zoning rules and regulations.
