ARMONK, N.Y. At Monday night's meeting of the North Castle Planning Board, its first of 2012, regulations against two housing projects were relaxed and a subdivision project was sent to the zoning board for a variance.
The Margolin and Klein housing projects at 14 Gifford Lake Drive had satisfied planning board environmental concerns so the requirement for a site plan approval was waved. A wetlands requirement is required for the Klein property and public hearings will be scheduled for both projects to insure they have met planning board requirements for the size of the lots.
Michael Stein, who represents Hudson Engineering & Consulting, the firm designing the subdivision for Westconn Custom Builders, received approval to present plans for the project to the zoning board. Then he will return to the planning board for a subdivision approval.
Westconn seeks to subdivide a 4 acre parcel into a 2 acre parcel. "They'll take the lot to market and build to suit," Stein said, indicating no definitive plans for tenants have been established.
The planning board agreed unanimously Monday to allow the subdivision to acquire a variance from the zoning board.
