The Orange Plan & Zoning Commission meeting only lasted an hour, but plenty was discussed.
Before The Public Session
• Fines against the Rogers’ property continue to accumulate.
(From last month’s meeting: Rogers’ property /shopping center area on Orange Center Road has $150 per day fine active plus $100 per day will be added for anti-blight ordinance violations.
The 158 Ohman Avenue property is being fined $150 per day for zoning violation and then, after 10 days he will be fined $100 per day for the blight.)
• Zoning Enforcement Officer Paul Dinece said he has had six different complaints about blighted properties in town.
• The Celentano Funeral Home application will be heard on Sept. 17. It was pushed back at the applicant’s request.
• The new town zoning map will be presented on the 17th as well.
• Scott Allen is doing the inspections at the Edison Road construction project. It should be completed by fall.
• Town Attorney Vin Marino spoke on the Town of Orange’s application to subdivide Town owned property located off of Old Lambert Road; Red Cedar Road & South Orange Center Road.
The proposal is to create a separate parcel for the Silverbrook I Development. When the Silverbrook Condos were built, the town did not subdivide.
Marino said the town won a $3.5 million state grant for interior construction work, no exterior work would be done. This application is for the Red Cedar Circle area.
Chairman Beau Clark said there was no reason not to approve the application. The Commissioners unanimously approved the application.
• At 7:43 p.m. the commission went on recess until the 8 p.m. public hearing. (additional story regarding the Hindu Church’s special use application to come)
