ORDINANCE #2009-20 ESTABLISHING PARKING REQUIREMENTS
Clerk read e-mail review received from Raymond Savacool, Planning Board Engineer, wherein Mr. Savacool stated that presently there is no parking requirement for the beach businesses. A beach owner who also owns an adjacent parking lot that now serves the beach could change the use of the parking lot since we have no requirement.

Discussion held by Board members regarding proposed Ordinance. Chairman Ammirata expressed some concern about using calculation of square footage from the high tide line to determine the number of parking spaces required. Mr. Galvin stated he reviewed the wording and in his opinion the Ordinance contained an adequate definition for engineers to determine the number of spaces necessary. Mr. Dyer questioned what would happen if there are two separate companies owning a beach. Mr. Galvin stated he did not know how that would be handled and it would be addressed if the situation arose. Advised the Board that the Town needs to do something because right now there is no requirement or guidelines.
Further discussion was held and Mr. Galvin in conclusion stated the purpose of the Ordinance is not to hurt the businesses.

Motion by Mr. Koscinski, seconded by Chairman Ammirata and unanimously approved by roll call vote of those members present: Recommendation to Mayor and Council that Ordinance 2009-20 be adopted and Board Attorney directed to prepare Resolution.

Motion by Mr. Dyer, seconded by Mrs. Koscinski and unanimously approved by roll call vote of those members present: Mr. Galvin authorized to prepare Resolution for signature by Chairman Ammirata without any further action required by the Board.

PENDING APPLICATIONS
Application #2009-340 submitted by 1500 Richmond Avenue Associates and Point Beach Spirits, LLC (Storino) for property at 1506 Richmond Avenue (old Surf Chevrolet Site) for preliminary and final site plan approval for a retail liquor store, restaurant and bar. Clerk advised the Board that she spoke with Mr. Savacool and he has not yet deemed the application complete because he still has not received the traffic report. Per Clerk's conversation with Mr. Savacool he has been in communication with both the




applicant's attorney and engineer regarding this. Mr. Savacool is starting his preliminary review and upon receipt of the traffic report, will deem the application complete and the application can be scheduled for hearing.

Clerk advised the Board that it would appear there will be the necessary members available for the September 2, 2009 Planning Board meeting to schedule this matter for hearing provided the application has been deemed complete and the engineer's review completed.

Since there is no other pending application and/or business, the Board agreed to cancel the August 5, 2009 meeting.

There being no further business to come before the Board, on a motion by Mrs Koscinski, seconded by Mr. Shamy and unanimously carried by roll call vote - meeting adjourned.

Respectfully submitted,


Diane F. Johnson,
Clerk/Secretary
