        Maple Avenue                                                            Final (Public Hearing)
                                                                                        
Concord Development is proposing a 44-unit townhouse development (Yates Farm Townhomes) in 11 buildings on a 7.3+ acre property.  Preliminary approval for this project was issued in April, 2007.  The project has been downsized from 50 units in 13 buildings to 44 units in 10 buildings.  Also, new construction is no longer being planned for the Yates farmhouse parcel.  The project site is located on the west side of Maple Avenue, across from the western terminus of Alplaus Avenue.  The project site is located in a Multi-Family Residential zoning district.

                                                                                        (Public Hearing)
                                                                                        
The applicant is seeking an amendment to the previously-approved site plan.  The newest proposal calls for a stand-alone 2,703 sq. ft. bank, with drive-thru lanes, instead of the previously approved restaurant.  The proposed multi-tenant building is being reduced in size from 19,609 sq. ft. to 15,660 sq. ft.

This proposal calls for the construction of a duplex on an existing parcel.  A conditional use permit for this project was granted in September, 2006, but it has expired, necessitating another review by the Zoning Board of Appeals.  The parcel is located on the north side of Glenridge Road, approximately 600 feet east of St. Anthony Lane.  The property is zoned Suburban Residential.

The applicant is seeking approval to subdivide a 26.4-acre parcel, owned by the Burnt Hills/Ballston Lake School District, into two lots consisting of 14.5 acres and 11.9 acres.  Public water is available at the site, with septic systems being proposed for the two lots.  The property is located east of Swaggertown Road and south of Onderdonk Road, and is zoned primarily Suburban Residential.  A portion of the property, in the southeast corner, is zoned Land Conservation due to the presence of a New York State regulated freshwater wetland.
