The News, Talk, Sights and Sounds of the Warfleigh Neighborhood
I see the yellow house and my favorite tree in the village are tagged for demolition. Beside the canal behind the CVS. Are they building apartments or condos?
Meeting Notes: 6265& 6289 Broadway Street, Greg Stoll owner of the property, working with Tad Lupton, Architect, and David Kingen regarding changes to the plan for developing a multifamily building. Will be filing with DMD in July for an August hearing date. See site plan handout in file.
D-4 to D-6 and variance will be needed for height, setbacks and amentias. The 6265 house is very close to the right-of-way of the canal and will be asking for a zero line setback to the canal. Need encroachment permits. Site is triangular in shape. This building can act as a buffer to the existing homes and from CVS.
I have been a resident owner for twenty four years. I am impressed they let car traffic drive down this narrow road filled with imminent peril. Kinda like a slice of Italy. I am not impressed by the tastes of the new residents. They will pay way to much for a property overlooking the canal and a parking garage as if it had soul. It does, but there is no soul in the salesmen pitch. We lost far to many people who dug this ditch over a hundred years ago, only to be exploited by charlatans.
The ground water flooding issue is a non-issue now. So we see an epidemic of development. No proposal offers respect for the founders, it is about money. The village is not without soul but the village has a very small following of respect for those who founded this village.
Myself, I like offering respect to our past. Wholesale corruption and greed is not how I would approach this, but this is only my opinion. JW
B. Update on 6265 Broadway Street, regarding changes to the property for developing a multifamily building. Have filed with DMD.
Will there be any opportunities for neighborhood comment? Will there be a public hearing? Or have these already taken place?
Not as far as I have heard. Just the village association and permits, I thought a variance would have to notify immediate neighbors. Not sure.
