Special Town Board Meeting held June 14, 2010 at 6:00 P.M. at the Town Hall in Schroon Lake N.Y.


Town Supervisor:             Cathy Moses

Councilpersons:               Roger Friedman, Clara Phibbs and Mark Whitney

Town Clerk:                     Patricia Savarie

Also Present:                  See Attached

     The meeting was called to order at 6:02 p.m.  The Zoning Board of Appeals has received a request for a variance concerning a lot at 184 Loch Muller Road. The landowners, Greg and Dafne Steckiewicz, would like to place a park model trailer on the site with the intention of putting in a well and a septic system to be used with the trailer.  It is their intent to use the trailer as a vacation home and to place it permanently on the site.  Rich Shoenstadt stated that the problem is with the classification of the trailer.  Park model trailers are between RVís and single wide mobile homes and fall in that grey area.  The Zoning Board of Appeals feels that the Town Board needs to decide if it wants to allow vehicles such as this to be considered seasonal homes.  Rich stated that the Board has to decide what defines a mobile home, what distinctions are you going to use and to become familiar with all the mobile homes before coming to a decision on how to handle the variance and set a precedent. The Board will get back to the Zoning Board of Appeals with their decision after they have had time to research everything. Supervisor Moses moved to adjourn at 6:30 p.m., seconded by Councilman Whitney; carried.

I, Patricia J. Savarie, do hereby certify the foregoing to be a true and correct transcript from the minutes now on file in my office and of the whole such original minutes.
