Mrs. Calderone commented that when she went looking for the site and the candy store on the Boardwalk to prepare for the hearing, there were no numbers on any of the buildings. She expressed her concern that there were no addresses – how do police, medical assistance etc. no where to go when they get a call; what about visitors coming into town etc. Mr. Storino advised that the police have a map of the boardwalk with the location of each business. Discussion was held among Board members regarding numbering buildings i.e. where would you actually put a number. Mr. DeBenedett advised the Board that this issue would have to be addressed by the Mayor and Council not really something the Planning Board has control over. Councilman Corbally indicated he would bring it up at the next meeting.

Mr. Spader stated that private residences require a recovery system for drainage. Mr. Savacool stated that this property rain water goes back into the sand not a bad thing or problem in his professional opinion. Discussion was held regarding the drainage. Mr. Zahorsky indicated that most concerns are because of impact on neighbors. In this case, there is no neighboring property.

Mr. Neumaier questioned the architectural plan – scroll vs. straight. Mr. Storino indicated that they are going to come as close to the drawing as they can, roof color will be dark.

There being no further questions from the Board, Chairman Ammirata opened the meeting to public participation. There being no public that portion of the hearing was declared closed.

Motion by Mrs. Koscinski, seconded by Mr. Brodeur and unanimously carried by roll call vote: Recommendation to Mayor and Council to amend new fee schedule to include a “commercial change of use” category with application fee of $200.00 and escrow fee of $1,000.00.
