Audience comments

Lisa Muller, 605 Trenton Avenue – Main concern is the drainage. Has lived in the home for eighteen (18) years and there is a lot of water that comes out of the sump pump. The water that comes out of this pipe is contaminated from the dry cleaners that used to be housed in the building next door. Is concerned how it is going to end up. There are times when it is just a constant flow coming out of the pipe. Ray Savacool stated that presently it just goes into a catch basin. The water will now go through a seventy (70) foot system into a storage tank and the water will be recycled back into the ground and believes that this will be sufficient. Also concerned about the exterior of the house. Dennis Galvin said that he has a condition that says the proposed homes to be constructed are to be consistent with neighboring homes and are to have porches. William Stevens stated that there is a sale pending upon approval of the board and they will be built soon. Lisa Muller is very happy with the landscaping.
Dennis Carmody – Inquired if it could it be stated that the homes are to be single family homes? Ray Savacool stated that the application is before the Planning Board because this is a permitted use. Only single family homes can be built; any other use would be before the zoning board. Dennis Carmody is also concerned with the line of site exiting the parking lot.

1. In the event that the property is no longer used as a bank the drive through is to be removed and additional parking spaces are to be provided.
2. The site plan is to be changed to add signage to establish four parking spaces in the rear of the bank for employee parking only.
3. The applicant is to install a six foot high wooden stockade fence on the rear of the property line as described at the time of the hearing.
4. The applicant is to supply five feet of right away dedication to the county as described by the applicant at the time of the hearing.
5. The applicant is to submit a lot grading and drainage plan to the Borough Engineer for his review and approval at the time of building permits.
6. The applicant agreed to comply with the Board Engineer’s letter.
7. The curbs and sidewalks on Trenton Avenue are to be replaced.
8. The landscape plan must be submitted to the Boards engineer for review and approval and must show three street trees that will be planted in the right of way. The trees will be chosen from the shade tree committee list of appropriate trees.
9. The dumpster’s location and screening are to be reviewed by the Board’s engineer.
10. The parking spaces are to be lined with hair pin striping.
