            Revisions of Proposed Retail Center – 223 Changebridge Road – Block 138, Lots                          10.03 & 11

Present:  Joseph Mianecki, PE & Mike Lakhiani, applicant

Reviewed a revision of prior development proposal involving a lifestyle site corner of Kramer (prior use was Sunoco station).  Prior concerns were site was over development.  Applicant amended proposal by reducing footprint by 833 sq. ft. so the floor space was reduced from 14,298 sq. to 14,090 sq. ft.  The proposed number of rental units was reduced from prior request of 7 (ordinance allows 3) to five units.

This is the I2A zone.  The parking demand reduced from 84 to 78 spaces, the impervious was reduced from 67.8% to 65.6% which would still require a variance where 55% permitted and the engineer added landscape curbed islands in parking lot.

Concerns continue to be voiced on oversized structure and that the size of the units may not encourage the type of lifestyle mall the community is seeking. 

After general discussion on the types of uses with various suggestions offered, the applicant asked if he could come back with a plan that is reduced to a two story structure with the number of retail allowed on first floor and offices on top.  Mrs. White will coordinate another subcommittee meeting when this concept is ready.

PMISC09-09 Stebco – 30 Chapin Rd. Unit 1205 - B: 183, L: 7.1 – office (2,830 s.f.)/warehouse (3,510 s.f.) for distribution of non ferrous metals – 10 employees – hours of operation 8am-5:15pm Mon-F – signage to be in compliance with approved theme (First Industrial)

Approved subject to compliance with use letter, sign theme, no outdoor storage.

Respectfully submitted,

Linda M. White
