Hearings

LU# 11-11-18: Toye Real Estate, LLC, Block 171.17, Lots 6 & 7, - Prel/Major Subdivision, Use Variance & Interpretation for a Pre-Existing Nonconforming Campground

Jeanne Ann McManus, Esq., Mr. Toye and Mr. Ken Wentink, PE, PLS, came forward on behalf of the applicant. Ms. McManus explained that the applicant is now applying simultaneously for final subdivision relief due to the intent of being able to market the one vacant lot (6.02) created by the subdivision. A second application was submitted. As such, the application is for preliminary major subdivision approval and final major subdivision approval as well as the variances.

Ms. McManus discussed the chart she prepared listing the various variances required for the application. She confirmed that nothing is being built in connection with this project.

Mr. Toye confirmed that he has been working with the construction officials to bring the apartments in Building B up to code. It was also clarified that the campground will be seasonal and the apartments will have year-round use.

Mr. Stoner discussed his most recent review letter. There are 42 trailer campsites and 20 tent sites will be numbered. There will be one trailer per trailer site allowed and up to 2 tents per tent site. There will be no manufactured homes and only seasonal residence for the RVs. There are 2 permanent camp trailers that belong to the Toye campground, both of which will remain on the property and will only be rented on a seasonal basis.

Mr. Stoner asked if the applicant would be able to do something about the overlapping areas along the outside of the new subdivision, specifically the area on the west side of Lot 6.01 which is overlapping onto an adjacent lot. Mr. Wentink advised that this area is a buffer zone and would require the cooperation of third parties which are condominium groups. County Planning Board approval will be required. The applicant confirmed that lots 6.01 and 6.02 were approved by the Tax Assessor.
