PUBLIC HEARING SPECIAL USE PERMIT TWO FAMILY HOUSE 314 ALDRICH ROAD
Supervisor Smith opened the Public Hearing and asked the Clerk for proof of publication and affidavit of posting. Proof of publication was given in the Perinton Fairport Post on December 28, 2006; affidavit of posting was also December 28, 2006.
Supervisor Smith explained that the purpose of the Public Hearing was to hear both the applicant and the audience in regard to this proposal. Members of the audience would have the opportunity to both ask questions about the application and make comments to the Board.
Mark Contino, San Ramon, CA, addressed the Board. He said that he would be building the proposed duplex as a residence for his brother and his parents. He then introduced his brother, James Contino, 25 Hyacinth Lane, to explain the proposal to the Board members and the audience.
James Contino said that the proposal is to build an up-scale two-family home at 314 Aldrich Road. He would occupy one side, his parents the other. He said that the property is zoned Residential B and is approved for construction of a single- family residence. The project would provide the diverse living style recommended in the Town's Master Plan, without apartment complex living. He said that the proposed building would be compatible with the neighborhood; the footprint of the proposed building would be similar to the footprint of the single-family house at 312 Aldrich Road. He did not believe that the duplex would generate any more traffic than a single-family house.
Mr. Contino said the Town has a history of allowing multi-family living near its parks - at Beechwoods Park, for example. In this case, the house would be screened from the park.
