Following is the REVISED Agenda and what took place.

1. SITE PLAN APPLICATION – Medical Clinic at Orange Promenade Shopping Center. 100 Boston Post Road (Former Staples Store). Change of use from retail to medical clinic. A SITE PLAN APPLICATION – ARCHITECTURAL STANDARDS SUPPLEMENT has also been submitted.

Discussion: Applicant was well-prepared. Unanimously approved.

7. Request by Home Depot, 440 Boston Post Road to extend the Special Permit for Outdoor Storage and Display.

Discussion: no problem with the store this season, unanimously approved.

Screen Shot 2016-08-02 at 9.24.40 PM8. SITE PLAN APPLICATION – ARCHITECTURAL STANDARDS SUPPLEMENT – for property known as 550-560 Boston Post Road. Proposed façade improvements to retail center occupied by LL Bean and Trader Joe’s.

Discussion: The changes would not exceed 7%, complies with the town regulations and therefore the applicant did not have to appear before the Commission. — But thank you for coming!

PUBLIC HEARINGS *(2)  Route 34 Winery discussion and decision

Screen Shot 2016-08-02 at 8.03.43 PM* 9. PETITION TO AMEND THE ORANGE ZONING REGULATIONS – -Submitted by Stellato Realty L.L.C. – To amend the Orange Zoning Regulations to provide Special Standards for a “Farm Winery.” (Continued from the June 7, 2016 meeting.)

*10. APPLICATION FOR SPECIAL EXCEPTION, PERMIT OR USE – Submitted by Stellato Realty L.L.C. For property known as 403 Derby Avenue. The proposal is for a Farm Winery including the growing of grapes and other fruit products and the manufacturing, storing, and selling of wine products. (Continued from the June 7, 2016 meeting.)

Discussion: The Fire Marshal allows 132 occupancy, which includes the entire building (offices, tasting area etc.) and all staff.

Attorney Brian Stone speaking for the applicant. He doesn’t agree with the regulations with respect to the parking.

An engineer from a firm in Shelton said the septic could handle 2.5 times the needs of the operation.

Screen Shot 2016-08-02 at 8.08.25 PMFire Marshal also wants the turn-in to be wider and a fire hydrant moved.

John Ruffalo said people could be in the tasting area, touring the production area and on the rooftop (with employees included) and not exceed the Fire Marshal’s occupancy rate.

Public commentary: Bruce Lindsey owns a property abutting the vineyard. He feels the plans need to be scaled down and the hours should be cut down. A vineyard would be nice but this proposal seems to have a lot of smoke and mirrors.

Another neighbor, Mr. Gomez from Greenhill Road said the business would be in his backyard and the original plan was far more ambitious and he is afraid it will turn into something much bigger than this Screen Shot 2016-08-02 at 8.39.17 PMproposal.

Commission member Judy Smith asked what size the kitchen was [270 sq ft] what would they be serving?

Attorney Smith said food service would be limited and without a commercial kitchen they couldn’t even make meatballs on site. There would only be finger foods, cheese and crackers etc, but it also would be used to clean the dishes and glasses.

Screen Shot 2016-08-02 at 8.24.40 PMHe said caterers would be able to bring in food.

Commission chairman Beau Clark said Attorney Smith did a great job putting together a regulation, but as Mr. Gomez stated, it seems to still appear to be more like a commercial operation, than an agricultural operation.

He said changing the regulation would not apply only to this property, but extend to the entire town.

Clark said the Commission is charged with the health safety and wellness of the town.

Screen Shot 2016-08-02 at 8.45.19 PMAll of the commissioners participated in a lively discussion stating that special events would bring in a lot of people and a wedding party with band, noise etc would not be fair to the neighbors.

Clark said the vineyard should be more like a farm stand. Stop by sample a sip of wine, buy it and go, not make it a destination where you come and stay for the experience. “I don’t think this is compatible with a residential zone.”

In the Plan of Conservation and Development the Route 34 (south) area is more residential, and the Post Road (north) area should be more of a business district.

Commissioner Ralph Aschettino said he thought they should evolve with the times. In a few years, I hope we aren’t looking back and wishing we were in these seats making this decision.

Clark said the artists rendering is very attractive, but what is the difference in this business and a restaurant?

“Little things become big things when they are put in a residential area,” Clark said.

Commissioner Paul Kaplan said the operation is just too intense for a residential zone.

Commissioner Ozzie Parente said residents did not come out to the meeting to speak in favor of it.

“Would you be comfortable with this USE throughout the town?” Clark asked. “My concern is not necessarily THIS scene, but this scene in other areas of town.”

The Commission DENIED the application.

Jul 192016
 

wayne HugendubelWayne Hugendubel, a sales associate affiliated with the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office in Orange, was named to the 2016 REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents list, a ranking report that identifies the most productive real estate agents by state and metropolitan area based on closed transaction sides and sales volume. He was ranked No. 33 for the state of Connecticut based on transaction sides.

REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents ranks over 12,000 residential real estate professionals solely based on their excellence in real estate sales during calendar year 2015. All production numbers are independently verified by a third-party in order to ensure accuracy and report integrity. This group of highly successful real estate sales agents represents less than 1 percent of all real estate practitioners in the United States.

To qualify for inclusion, an individual agent must have closed at least 50 transaction sides or $20 million in sales volume in 2015. For real estate agent teams, the minimum is 75 transaction sides or $30 million in closed sales volume. Information on those receiving this recognition can be found online at http://www.americasbestre.com

“I am obviously pleased and honored to be ranked among Connecticut’s top residential real estate agents,” said Hugendubel, a resident of Orange. “I dedicate a lot of time and effort to help my clients achieve their real estate goals, and I’m very proud to be acknowledged for my accomplishments. The level of sales it takes to qualify for this list makes it a truly special recognition.”

The real estate professionals are ranked in four categories:
• Individual agent — Sales volume
• Individual agent — Transaction sides (in each real estate transaction there are two sides that can be represented by a real estate agent: the buy side and the selling side)
• Agent team — Sales volume
• Agent team — Transaction sides
