Swaggertown and Onderdonk Roads Final (Public Hearing)
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.

3. Lowe’s Home Centers, Inc. Revisions to the approved
Freemans Bridge Road site plan
Lowe’s is proposing to reduce the size of their approved building by approximately 14,000 sq. ft. The parking lot is also being reduced in size from 538 spaces to 452 spaces. The reduction in building size also results in a significant reduction in the size of the proposed retaining wall, particularly along the south side of the building. There will be no changes to the proposed subdivision as a result of the reduction in building size.
4. Pat Popolizio Revisions to the approved
2 & 4 Freemans Bridge Road site plan
This application involves an amendment to the site plan for the Water’s Edge Lighthouse Restaurant property. The applicant is seeking approval for an already-built 5,290 sq. ft., year-round banquet facility. The previous approval was for a 4,000 sq. ft. open-sided, seasonal pavilion.

6. Kim and Brent Lucas Subdivision Minor (2-lot) Subdivision

7. Glenville Fire Training Facility, Inc. SEQR Recommendation to
Vley Road and Vley Road Extension the Town Board
This project involves the construction of a public safety training facility on a town-owned 11.9-acre parcel located north and northwest of the intersection of Vley Road and NYS Route 5. The PZC recommended a SEQR “Positive Declaration” in October, 2006. The Town Board, who is lead agency for this project, subsequently tabled the SEQR action and directed the applicant to revise the storm water collection/treatment system on site so as to eliminate the subsurface storm water treatment facilities from the Zone 2 aquifer portion of the property. The PZC is being asked to revisit the SEQR recommendation.
8. Michael Carusso Minor (3-lot) Subdivision
Amsterdam Road & Alexander Avenue Final – continued from March
The applicant has proposed a minor subdivision that will result in the creation of three lots from the existing 2.4 +/- acre parent parcel. The new lots will have public water and private on-site wastewater treatment systems. Each lot is being targeted for a duplex, which triggers a conditional use permit application. The project site is located on the north side of Amsterdam Road, with rear frontage on Alexander Avenue, opposite Cramer Avenue. The property is zoned Suburban Residential.
